    Richard, My understanding of chemo after whipple is to get rid of all the pancreatic cells still floating throughout the body, and attaching themselves to other areas to start a new growth. So these cells might have gone to the liver, lungs or a host of other grow sites. The CA-19 evidences that this is now happening.Even with chemo, pancreatic cancer returns to 86% of whipple patients. Chemo is probably the only hop...

        >> denver88 "this forum is not a place for pushing religioius beliefs so those who do this attempt to be respectful and keep your religion to yourself.  this is a medically based message board". Denver, I don't see that nonsense anywhere in the rules published for this forum. You have previously asserted that Cancer Compass has given you the authority to change the rules at will. Is that true?...

          Vomiting and ascites is an indicator that there is a blockage preventing food and fluid from draining. My wife was living quite normally and comfortably until the vomiting and ascities developed during her last week. I called the doctor on Wednesday to have her examined, but he said he would be seeing her on Friday, and he would take a look at it then. My wife was awakened in the small hours of Thursday morning, poin...

            eternalife, I agree with everything you have said here. Of course agreeing with a ideas and implementing them are two different matters.  ET >> "How can I help others, who will face the same misery...  but feel I have been put in this position for a reason and if I can bring comfort to others outside of myself ... then my mission in life has been fulfilled. I like that idea. You remind me of the Ap...

                Hi Marie, Sounds as if you have a great support group at your church. I wish we had something like that in my area. All they have here is the 'Grief Share' program, which is not all that great. They start off the meeting by exposing everyone to a 45 minute meaningless video, leaving less than about an hour left for everyone to discuss what is happening. This must be more of a girl thing, because out of our group of ...

                  Smyrnalover, I don't understand your anger toward those who claim that God healed them. There are a lot of things that happen in this world that cannot be explained scientifically, and of course cannot be verified one way or the other. My wife and I had a very strong faith in God, yet God did not heal her. All God did was keep us informed on His plan for her. But God had already given us the His answer to our pray...

                    WHIPPLE240   Be ever so grateful that your medical team agreed to go through with a whipple, the only real chance for beating this disease!!I have only heard of one incident of whipple after it had metastisized the the liver, and that was with a 15 year old boy! Unfortunately, I live in the Toronto area. Calvin Law at Sunnybrook Hospital, fought off the idea of a whipple until it was too late. I re-submitted m...

                      Sounds like a really rather rare form of cancer. I have never heard of it before, and I suspect most people on this forum haven't either.
