    Hello Kjamccune, Welcome to WhatNext a great site where you may find someone who is on the same cancer journey as yourself. You mention that you want to get the greatest treatment that is available so your 900 miles from home. So where is this greatest treatment? Are you at Cancer Treatment Centers of America? I myself am a nearly 17 year pancreatic cancer survivor. It will be 17 years since my surgery on November 3, 2000. What treatments are you on? I was on 24hr 7 days a week for 5 weeks, and radiation at the same time 5 days a week. Since you are stage IIB that means they found it fairly early...so that's good news for you. Early detection is the toughest thing about pancreatic cancer. Well if you have any questions just go to the top of your profile page and click on QUESTIONS. My best to you...Russ

    Hello G0915...Welcome to WhatNext a great website where you can find someone who may be on the same cancer journey as yourself. I myself will be a 17 year pancreatic cancer survivor on Nov. 3rd. So you see we can beat this horrible disease! I was diagnosed at age 56 and am now 73 and still kicking. It sounds to me that they caught your cancer fairly soon at 1B. That is one of the biggest problems with pancreatic cancer...early detection. If you have any questions just let me know...my best to you, Russ

    Hello jendaugherty, Welcome to WhatNext a great website to find someone else who may be on the same cancer journey. I myself am a 16+years pancreatic cancer survivor. Is this a family member who has pancreatic cancer or perhaps a friend. When you have the time would you please complete more of her profile so we know a little bit more about her battles, and treatment. You as a possible caregiver should remember to never give up hope...as well as the person who has the cancer. Hope is the last candle fluttering in the darkness while all the other have gone out. We here at WhatNext will help to keep the candle of hope lit for both of you until she has the power to keep it lit. My best to both of you...Russ

    Hello TonySper...welcome to WhatNext a great site to find someone who is on the same cancer journey as yourself. I was diagnosed at the age of 56, and this coming week I'll be 73. I had surgery where they removed 40% of my pancreas, a slice of my left kidney, my spleen, and 5 lymph nodes. I had a port with the same type of pump you carried, only I had it on for 5 weeks, 24/7, non-stop. I also had 5 days a week of radiation during the same 5 weeks. Then they did another round of chemo for 3 hours one day a week in the hospital. I was crawling on my hands and knees towards the end of my treatments. Keep up the good fight and never give up hope. Any questions? Fire away! My best to you...Russ
