This is very unfortunate. Pancreatic cancer is very very bad. In virtually all cases it is terminal. The problem is that it is not diagnosed in the very very early stages where it is much easier and better to treat. The symptoms often mask themselves as indigestion, heartburn, or other problems that cause a delay in seeking treatment. I have had a family member and a close friend who were diagnosed with it. The family member lived maybe an additional 3 months, however, the close friend was diagnosed on the first of March, 2006, and by the 31st he was dead from it. So you can be sure that if it advanced and just diagnosed, it has spread. He will experience pain, and a noticeable decline in his health as the cancer spreads into other internal organs. There is no real treatment for the advanced stages - only in the early early stages. I am very sorry about this and my prayers will be with you, even though I do not know you, God does.
