    Pancreatic cancer for my 84 year old mom
    Posted on August 15, 2013 by JessicaB — 2 Comments ↓

    My mom (84 yrs) has recently been diagnosed to have pancreatic
    cancer on her body. Unfortunately, seems to have spread onto the nearby
    vessels too. The symptoms started to have an onset in Dec of last year and
    aggravated in last 6 months when she really started losing weight
    drastically. At this time, she does not have pain or another issue but no
    appetite and continuous loss of weight/weakness. Doctors have given up in
    terms of possibility of surgery and we believe chemotherapy or radiology
    would be too much for her to be able to handle the pain. Wondering what
    should we expect next in what time frame. What other advice to help her! She
    was in Canada but all these issues were only revealed by tests in a
    developing coountry (sadly enough that it was not detected by experts in this
    country!!1). Thanks.

    Hi Amir-

    I am sorry to read that your mom has been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. At 84, with surgery, chemo and radiation ruled out, her prognosis
    isn’t good. I am not an oncologist and therefore cannot give the kind of prediction that you ask-“Wondering what should we expect next in what time frame…”

    I can, however, offer ideas for nutritional supplementation that has proven anti-pancreatic cancer properties. Please read the studies below and consider supplementing curcumin, omega 3 (fish oil) and ellagic acid.

    Good luck and let me know if you have any questions-
