Topic: mets to pancreas
John had a ct scan on 2/26. Got the results last week it said all was stable. He is now on a month long break from chemo. We don't go back to the doctor til April 2. However, we had not noticed on the previous scans a 5.6 cm mass on the head of the pancreas. Has anyone else had mets to the pancreas? What type of problems arise from tumors on the pancreas? Also, John is diabetic. His diabetes is controled by pills. He's lost about 20 pounds in the last two months and is now having trouble with low sugar attacks. He has cut back on his diabetes meds.
a few days before his ct scan John had 3 liters of fluid drained from his abdomen. Tests were run and the doctor said the fluid had suspicious cells. What does that mean? How good can the good news be if its off set by such bad news. I am so thankful for a place to ask questions and try to make sense of all this mess.
