    Doggone it! I wanted to post in the good news section! It’s not the worst news, but it could be better.
    New nodal involvement at the tip of the pancreas involving another blood vessel, of course. Dr. Fong doesn’t want to try to remove it because of where it is. There are a few options like IRE (electricity) or microwave ablation. But he wants me to talk with rad onc. So I got an appt for Monday with dr. Meyer to discuss radiation or other courses of action. Dr. Fong wants to look at other options because I look so healthy and doing the ablation would be like another major surgery.
    $@##%!!! I was hoping nothing had changed.
    We discussed clinical trials. He said the cancer cells no longer have clearly defined edges because of the necrosis so phase III trials would probably not take me. Phase II might, but there’s no way of knowing if I would actually be getting treated or getting a placebo. And Phase I trials are mostly to see if how new drugs affect people, not necessarily the cancer, and since I’m no sick he wouldn’t recommend that.

    Hi Kris,

    I don’t think you would be human if you didn’t worry. I am hoping and praying for you to get great news. Please let us know when you find out.

    Love and hugs,
    -Pam

    I go to NYC in the morning to find out if the cancer is still quiet. Hoping and praying that is so. I know I’m not supposed to worry, and I’m supposed to trust in God, but it’s hard.
