          what type of treatment are you seeking?  if information on this doctor is not readily available i would search elsewhere.  Atanta is a large enough area providing a many choices, some cancer centers, if you can travel, specialize in specific cancers and they are easily found via a Google search.

              have you tried medical marijuana for pain relief, many folks with painful diseases get relief, might be worth a try and one doesn't have to smoke it as there are oral drops and other forms

                    Your scan should reveal any pancreatic cancer as well as tumor markers in a blood test.  Excessive gas and floating stools are common among those post-Whipple operation but you are not there yet.  I had both a CT and then an MRI that detected pancreatic tumors (remove via Whipple and not returned to date, 15 months ago) and severa small tumors spread to the liver and have been contained to date via lanreoti...
