      The way I understand it ablation is typically only used for neuroendocrine tumors. Where would you be getting this surgery? I know Stanford has had some nice success with type of treatment.

      I have pancreatic Neuroendocrine High grade Cancer stage 4 with liver mets...Inoperable. I was dx 18 months ago. Now my type of PC is different , so what I have done may or may not work for you. To be honest while in treatment I ate whatever I could get down. Healthy and unhealthy food. After treatment as I got stronger I switched my diet. I blend drinks and I juice. 2xs a day I make a green drink with, wheat grass powder, Kale, 1/2 lemon , 1 in of Ginger, 3 Asparagus stalks, 2 shots each of beet juice and carrot juice, this is blended. I also use part of budwig diet...I blend cottage cheese and cold pressed flaxseed oil together and then I add berries to it. I juice 5lbs of carrots a day which makes about 40-45 oz of juice. I take a number of supplements.
      I try and eat as many vegetables as I can, try and eat less sugar,and I try and limit my processed foods. Dr.s don't get into nutrition and some people don't change their diet at all. These changes definitely contribute to more energy and my quality of life is great..
