My Ex Has Been Diagnosed With Pancreatic Cancer, Will She Live?

Postby Mansfield » Tue Oct 10, 2017 12:04 am

She claims to have had 5 organs removed due to the cancer. She is very overweight and has no focus on her health. Is she going to survive? If so, approximately how long?

@ H - I'm not going to ask her about this, it's a sensitive subject and I'm not going to pry her for information or ask her how long she has to live, it's kinda mean to ask that.

Apparently, survival rate is low. I'm asking because my 10 year old son lives with her and I was planning on visiting family overseas and then moving out of state but after these news I'm wondering if I should stay put in case the worst happens.

We are not medically trained and neither is the internet.

We cannot answer you. We do not know.

The doctors she sees likely do not know the time she will pass away or how long she'll live.

Ask her about this. Talk to her doctors.

It sounds like she had a Whipple which is the only surgery for this cancer.

However, there are still few long term survivors.

Less than 20% survive the first year and less than 3% survive 5 years.

EDIT: It would really be helpful to know what kind she has people with neuroendocrine cancers do better, but they are not very common. This is the type Steve Jobs had.

Only 20% of patients are able to have surgery, those that do not have a median survival of 2-6 months.

You will have time for a visit overseas, but I would not move out of state unless she is one of the very rare people who have a neuroendocrine cancer that was found very early.

Maybe you can ask her if it the kind Steve Jobs had, that doesn?t sound as intrusive.

What does she say about her survival? Pancreatic is one of the worst survivable cancers, but I personally know someone who got past it.
Having all those organs removed is not good for long-term outlook, so you never know.

I found complete relief from very painful sinus by giving up water and other liquids for 48 hours. That was 3 years back and no sinus since then. Earlier I used to get sinus 2-3 times in a year with extreme body pain and fever of 105. There was an additional factor. For last 2-3 years I was drinking 1 glass of water 1 hour before each meal and no other water or liquids during the day.

The logic for this sinus relief is as under -

There is swelling and inflamation during sinus. Water reduction will cause fast relief from swelling. That will make it easier and faster to get rid of cough.

Water reductions boosts the immune system by increasing the blood acids by upto 10% of previous levels.

Since then I tried the same approach on lot of other ailments - like renal failure, slip disk, dry skin, dandruff, constipation, mouth ulcers, dry eye syndrome etc. The result were shocking.

I had been wearing spectacles since the age of 15 i.e. for last 34 years. I have been trying eye exercises since begining with practically no benefits. Last 3 months I started eye exercises in a different way. It gave benefits in a number of areas. Better concentration and memory, better digestion, clearing of dark eye circles, no head aches etc. In 15 days I could cure my + number. There is marked improvement in other parameters. The - number seems to be coming down but I have not checked.

I wonder that cough effects every nerve in the nearby area. Food pipe is also close by. So it effects that as well. All mental problems also arise because of excess water. I am quite hopeful that drinking water and liquids on alternate days and giving up water and liquids on other days as a way of recovery from cancer and all other diseases. Eye exercises is additional way of speeding up recovery from cancer and other diseases.

Dark eye circles are caused due to nasal congestion.

Dark eye circles are also due to gluten intolerance and celiac diseases.

That is a clear indication that cough effects eye muscles, brain, entire gastric system and could be responsible for cancer as well. Linking cough with cancer may seem to be a bit far fetched. But there are lot of other things which I am not able to share at yahoo answers because of limitations to number of charaters that I can post here.

General Guidelines -

Give up water and all other liquids for 24 hours. To avoid dehydration keep indoors. In case of cancer repeat this after every 24 hours.

On other days drink 1 glass of water 1 hour before each meal. The total water intake on these days should not be more than 3 glasses.

There are 3 main or rather only common symptoms of cancer -

1) The cells are not able to produce 38 units of energy that is done in case of normal cells.

2) The stomach acid is very low.

3) Tumours or general swelling.

The reason and logic for the above in short is as under -

The cells of the human body are at the lowest level of producing energy. To produce energy cells burn glucose in presence of oxygen.

When there is more water in the cell then the energy producing capacity of the cell is significantly reduced. Reduced energy by the cells cause build up of water outside the cells as well. That causes pain in the entire body due to constant excess weight on the cells.

Continued less burning of glucose also causes accumulation of other minerals in the cell. That causes the cells to swell up.

This does not happen overnight.

There are various checks in the body to avoid build up of water in the cells. Like whenever there is change in atmosphere temperature the body adjusts the amount of water that cells carry. When this adjustments fails due to some reason the body tries various modes to get rid of the excess water - sinus, cold and cough, adrelin levels, water reduction thru increased urine etc.

There are certain other complications that happen due to build up of excess water in the cells. One is build up of bacteria and infections in the body.

These bacteria or infections cause the increase in the body temperature. The increased temperature takes care of the situation.

What is the reason for cancer. Same. There are tumours in all kind of cancers. The tumours are caused due to cells not dieing. The reason for cells not dieing is cells not producing enough energy and that prolongs their life cycle.

What is the cure for cancer. The cure for cancer and all other common ailments is same. I found that sinus, cold, cough, IBS, skin blood clots, slip disk, dry skin, mouth ulcers, renal failure etc can be cured effectively by giving up water and all other liquids for 24 hours to 48 hours. This has been tested on more than 50 persons so far. Thru Yahoo Answers this same been tested on more than 100 people but I do not have conclusive proof of this. The cerainity with which relief is produced in 24 hours gives enough hope for cancer cure in 15 days.
