What Are The Odds Of Anyone Surviving Pancreatic Cancer?

Postby ham » Mon Aug 14, 2017 12:28 pm

My Nana has pancreatic cancer and is in stage 3 she has already had to get her stints replaced 4 times for her obstructive jaundice and has had to get her port for the cancer replaced again. She recently got back from MD Anderson in Houston and they told us that for right now the cancer is stable. She has her good and bad days but honestly what are the odds of her making it. I am not ready for her to leave I fell like I still need her she is more of a mom to me then a grandmother. Also the doctor told us only about 3-6months to live and she got diagnosed in May

2-6 months is the median survival - you should believe the doctor.

I'm so sorry to hear your Nana is ill. I recently lost my father to pancreatic cancer. Unfortunately pancreatic cancer is one of the deadliest types of cancer. Is sounds like your grandmother was given a pretty average amount of time by the doctor. You need to remember that every person is different and the disease will affect every person differently. My approach to my fathers diagnoses was to be realistic but hopeful. He lived for over a year after diagnoses and was able to be healthy and active almost until the end. Enjoy the time you have left with your grandmother, if it is anything like the time I had with my father it will be the most bonding and special time you have ever spent together. X

I'll be honest. She has a 5% chance of making it. Sorry.
