My pancreatic cancer is interfering with the blood vessels

Customer Question

My pancreatic cancer is interfering with the blood vessels that regulate my digestion. Ergo I have a heavy feeling of indigestion, especially when I eat. Ergo I have no desire to eat, I'm loosing weight.Chemo takes time and I believe I'm not strong enough to tolerate it. The indigestion is sapping my strength. No one is giving me a regimen to get rid of it. That's why I'm game for Cyberknife. Help!

Have you tried Ensure?

Actually a similar product from the pharmacy.

The problem as I see it is: I'm averse to going the chemo route. From what I read Cyberknife is the way to go for me.
It, if their hype is correct, should be a lot quicker than ordinary radiation. The indigestion problem is killing me. I'd never finish the chemo .

How is your pancreatic cancer? Does it spread?
