Bone marrow too weak to fight pancreatic cancer with chemo...?

Postby carolos » Fri Jul 27, 2012 12:01 am

dr. says no to chemo because bone marrow is too weak to accept it.
can't the person get a bone marrow transplant, hope for the best, and then be given chemo to fight pancreatic cancer???

Chemo does little for pancreatic cancer.
Having pancreatic cancer makes them ineligible to a bone marrow transplant.

if chemo can not get rid of pancreatic cancer it's not worth having.it will just make you feel really crummy before you die and may even speed up your demise.
