Sep 21, 2016 · Pancreatic Cancer Stage IV: I need support in Pancreatic Cancer

A reacent scan of the four tumors (one in the pancreas two in the liver and one im not certain whare it is but its tiny ) that the doctors are following was bitter sweet. Only one tumor (in the liver) grew very slightly the rest stayed the same. The tumor markers in my blood are down to the 200 fron 500 on my last blood test. In my last scan tumors were down 7 percent overall and that brought us much joy. The fact that the tumors did not shrink brings the reality that my diagnosis is terminal. Please dont get me wrong im certenly not going to make it easy for the cancer to win this fight. I know the chemo im on will eventually stop working and then im ready for some exciting new trials. Can anyone explain the cancer markers to me all i know is low is good and high is bad. I was over a thousand when i started treatment in February. Is there a number that means my experation date is comming soon and its time to spend some money Extremely Foolishly. As for now with help from family and friends im taking my family to disney world for seven days starting this Saturday. Any suggestions for disny would be welcome as well its my first time.

I truly wish everyone well in this fight. I have a new pain it seams to b in the lower lobe of my right lung. I went to the er and its not a blood clot and its not a new tumor thank god. Going to visit my oncology doctor to see see if they have better solutions than the local er. I have a wonderful life and a suportive family i feel so bad for putting them through this i can tell they suffer. I would love to ease this entire process anyone out their with some words of wisdom cause i sure need them.

I know what you mean by surprise. I went to the doctor for what i thought an ulcer and after severl test i find i have stage IV pancreatic cancer. Im gitting treatment at University of chicago hospital im pretty sure the same two chemos once every other week as well. Im only 41 and i feel like i have aged 10 years since I was diagnosed in February. I have a two year old and some days i just cant keep up with him. The cancer has shrunk 7 pecent in the latest scan and the cancer markers in my blood continue to fall all great news for now anyway.
