Hi, My mum "Mili" a beautiful healthy women has been diagnosed with advanced local pancreatic cancer, which was inoperable when attempting a Whipples as the tumor in the head of the pancreas has involved itself with the portal vein & some other vessels. We are shocked with this news as we really thought it was operable & contained. Currently my darling mother Mili is in hospital recovering from surgery and is doing great guns. Her eating is of a concern, as she isn't taking in much which we are told is due to the bypass surgery they did adding the metal stent. Hopefully when she is discharged tomorrow, some home made soups get her eating again. Our next step is to meet with an oncologist to discuss our options, which at this stage seem bleak. I would love to hear from someone who is going through this..And hopefully give us some advice. X Have you tried chemotherapy / radiation? Diet- Foods to eat? Alternative therapys? Vitamins & supplents? Loving daughter. X
