    A recent comment on cyberknife caught my eye and I think it deserves comments from our members.  i have read many good results with this process from patients and medical journals.  the statement about "lasting results"  implied the cancer is initially killed off but due to weaknesses/flaws in the procedure it comes back?  please offer your experience and if you find this claim has substance. ...

      your comments on cyberknife caught my eye.  i have read many good results with this process from patients and medical journals.  you made  statement about "lasting results"?  would you mind providing clarification as this implies the cancer is initially killed off but due to weaknesses/flaws in the procedure it comes back?  thanks

        stop this pushing of religion on this forum, science is the answer and i think i saw your postings elsewhere pushing religion, do what you want with your religion but keep it to yourself, the only disease cure is science, not one person has been cured or life extended with religion, you exhibit the worse of people of faith.  Pray if it makes one feel good but stop the bull about it being a cure and pushing relig...

          Let's share our experiences with the duration we've been on lanreotide/Octreotide and thus how long did it remain effective from the initial injection.  I will soon be on lanreotide for 24 months and to date it has worked at containing the existing neuroendocrine tumors and no new tumors have appeared.  What is your experience?

              Why haven't you had an MRI?  I went through reporting symptoms to doctors and they simply wanted to treat me with more and more meds, they said my pain was from gurd, etc.  I pushed and then as much as i could demanded an MRI (my CT scan didn't show the tumor on my pancreas).  The MRI showed the tumor and spots on liver.  Now, you are very young and a long shot you have PC but do get an MRI and en...

                I had a Whipple Feb 2017, fortunate for me all went well and side affects to this day mostly involve digestion problems that are not severe, continue with recommended meds and treatment and scans and based on what i research there is no definite time line, also science is improving survival each year so hope is improving, with the Whipple and PC as you know it is all about the type of PC, neuroendocrine or adenocarci...

                  I went through a period of suspected medical problems and had CT's and an MRI but nothing found, finally on second MRI suspected growth on pancreas turned out to be cancer and spread to liver, caught early and good news it was neuroendocrine tumor type that is very treatable.  I receive every 6 months+ months or so a galium scan, the gold standard in detecting certain types of tumors.  My docs refused to ag...

                    I would very soon get a second opinion and reach out/investigate participting in trial programs on new drugs.  However, we on here don't know the details and what timeline the doctor has given or what other options are available as a normal routine, high rish, or experimental.  Facilities such as the Mayo Clinic may be a good option for a second opinion.  Hang in there

                      i also had symtoms that docs passed off as extreme heart burn/gurd, etc.  i had many of the same scans and tests.  i kept pursuing and finally was diagnosed with pc.  now pc may not be your problem as you've had extensive diagnosis but i would continue to pursue.  there is a test that is available to diagnose pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors that is the most advanced procedure:  Gallium-...
