I am 50, live on Vancouver Island, was diagnosed as having pancreatic cancer (stage unknown) at this point after ultrasound and CT Scan. It was only found as I have a gallbladder that needs to come out due to stones and therefore had the ultrasound after a few months of huge acid indigestion and minor stomach pain issues. Have been told it is at 2 cm. My GP immediately (same day as scan) referred me to a surgeon in Vancouver. Have not spoken to him yet as the surgeon ordered 1 more scan of my lungs to see if it's spread and another blood test (shows nothing). Have my chest scan this coming monday. In the mean time I am in quite a lot of pain unfortunately likely due to the gallbladder (Dr unsure if all the pain is associated with that but I feel strongly it is). The bloody waiting for something to happen is killing me - just want to get things started. My very loving husband and I are devasted but still in the numb stage. Anyone feel the same frustration until chemo/surgery happens? I just want the d*** gallbladder out at this stage but if I qualify for surgery they don't want to go in twice.
