How Long Has My Uncle Got?

Postby Andonis » Thu Oct 05, 2017 3:00 am

My uncle was admitted to hospital with jaundice which today he's had diagnosed as Pancreatic Cancer. He's got really bad jaundice but other than that doesn't seem to bad, he's 66 by the way

I've been reading up about it and some say his prognosis is 6months while others say up to two years.

Anyone got any experience of this? And dont beat about the bush I just want honesty

How Long Has My Uncle Got?

Only his consultants can answer that question. It depends on how advanced the cancer is, how aggressive it is and how responsive your uncles immune system is. It may even be that it is a tumour that is small enough to be removed.

some contact organisations for you http://www.bbc.co.uk/health/support/canc...
