    I have Stage 4 pancreatic cancer, it was operable, I had a Whipple operation Feb 2017, scans reveal no recurrence in pancreas but spread to liver where it stablized.  Every situation is different but the good news is there are many choices, treatments out there.  I would pursue a second and even third opinion for peace of mind and possible other suggestions.  In fact I got a second opinion from Moffitt...

      You are taking the proper steps on pursuing treatment by asking questions.  One thing we know on this message board is that one size doesn't fit all, all situations are unique, and there are alternative scientific treatments.  We also know that treatment can work with success.  The nonoknife comments are encouraging and that is great and this procedure gets better and more effective all the time. ...

        do pursue science and medical treatments that are successful with neuroendocrine tumors vs treatments with diet as there is no scientific evidence any of these diets does one thing or the other for containing tumors.  in particular, neuroendocrine tumors for the most part are treatable with medications but there is no evidence that diets work for a remedy.  Steve Jobs of Apple computer experimented with die...

          I'd like to yell but can only write, get an MRI, demand it, delays in diagnosis have a significant impact on addressing problems successfully.  Get the scan and don't settle for more and more meds, a scan will most likely reveal any tumor(s) then you and the doctor can respond appropriately.  Now even if you have a tumor related to PC it can be treated and there are various types of PC tumors which range in...

            I had the Whipple 15 months ago.  Diarreah is common and I wish i could related what i eat to the mild type of diarreah i get but it is difficult.  I do take enzyme tablets as do a lot of Whipple patients for digestion and they do seem to stablize my situation.  I have cut out fatty foods, cheese, bacon and replaced my former diet with yogurt, pineapple (which has natural enzymes), bananas, egss, peanu...

                I just read a few reponses and please be cautious about these suggestions of going to Mexico, eating apricot seeds, etc. and depend on science that is the road to recovery.  Next, I receive treatment at Rocky Mountain Cancer Center in Denver CO, they two of the more notable oncologist specializing in neuroendocrine tumors and related research.  I did alot of research prior to choosing them.  I am recei...

                      the question is good but all cancers are different and please be cautious of responses and do ask if this is treatment is addressing adenocarcinoma or neuroendocrine tumor, there is a significant difference.  Take care.
