On the other hand, I have yet to hear of anyone surviving pancreatic cancer. Earlier surgery might not have made a difference.
You might be right. I have not researched the latest treatment for the disease.
Magical thinking - that you can avoid making the decision or put off the decision when you have cancer, is nutz. If you decide the odds of treatment are too low for the amount of pain and suffering treatment will exact, that is rational.
I know someone that had her pancreas removed, oh... Must be over twenty years ago. Sometimes it works.
It can be cured if caught very early, which it usually isn’t.
pancreatic cancer is a death sentence
When I was in medical school some 30 years ago once you diagnosed pancreatic cancer the patient had three months to live on average. I cannot believe that surgery might have prolonged his life more than a few months...vut then again I might be wrong. With Obamacare no one will be getting that surgery.
