My wife Laine, My soul mate, and the anchor of our family was Dx,d with Pancreatic cancer in March of 2005. She had a distal pancrectomy, and 30 days of Radiation, with Xeloda as Chemo. This treatment was followed by 6 months of Gemzar. In February of 2006 all scans and blood work were clear of Cancer. In July of 2006 the ugly beast raised its head again, with a met to the Kidney and 2 on the stomach lining. She was then given Gemzar, and Xeloda for 6 months. this held it at bay, no additional mets but no decrease in the size of the existing tumors. That Chemo combo proved to be to much for her body after 6 months and she swithced to Tarceva. This chemo did not do her well, a new met was found on the lung and her existing tumors have grown. The tumor on the kidney has or is dangerously close to invading the Bowel. She will no go back to Gemzar, and Xeloda.
I pray for a miricle.
