It might be worth a conversation with the oncologist also given that the metastases in the liver and lung have disappeared, whether radiotherapy might be an opt...

Re: My mum - Stage 4 PC with liver mets

Dear Janine, We are so sorry to read about your mum having had a stroke. It is so difficult watching her suffer I am sure. Blood clots, which cause strokes, can be a symptom of pancreatic cancer, unfortunately. Has she had a CT scan of her head, or are they leaving her to keep her comfortable at the...
