I like everyone else am looking for the unspoken answer that no doctor is willing to give and actually, truly, can not give. Only God knows the time and hour. I say all that but still seek answers..... please let me have some input ..... my ex-husband was recently diagnosed with stage 4 metastatic pancreatic cancer that already spread to his liver and surgery is not an option because it is "wide spread'. About 20 to 30 1 cm+ nodules were found in the liver. I do not know size of mass on pancreas but the tumor marker test is extremely high. Like most people he started having pain and discomfort in his abdomen with previous pain in his back and was sent for CT scan of his gallbladder - SURPRISE & SHOCK!!! It has been approx 4 weeks since his diagnosis and he is now extremely jaundiced, his skin is yellow and his eye whites get darker/glowy orange almost daily.He has lost about 15 lbs in the last few months as well. He is having the "port" for chemo inserted this week with hopes of starting treatment next week. My question other than your thoughts on survival/prognosis, is do you think it is worth the struggle financially, etc. NOT THAT he would listen at this point but for my piece of mind.
