My husband has pancreatic cancer, diagonoised in Nov 2007, at which time he had surgery to remove the tumor in his pancreas and 3 lymph nodes that were also cancerous.(along w/ spleen and gallbladder). He was given chemo but had a bad reaction, (trouble breathing) so they started him on radiation. The radiation stopped in March. The Doctor sent him for a CT. scan. It shows enlarged nodules in lung that were there before but have grown, stomach anyersum, cysts on kidneys...there before but have grown in size and liver lesion, NOT ther before. He has been throwing up, weak and not eating. The Doctor says he will see us in 3 months to do another CT scan??? I feel like I've been thrown to the wolves. He did say if I feel he needs to come into the office just call and make an appt.?? I'm bewildered! Does this mean he's cured? I'm confused too. Help please, what am I facing??
