Advise and support needed


Recommended Posts


My dad was diagnosed in July 2020 with a 7cm mass on the neck and body of his pancreas. Non operable due to It invading his aorta, He has been given a timescale of 3months to a year Depending on treatment. It is still classed as localised and hasn’t spread. Since his initial diagnosis which was 7 weeks ago we have been doing alternative therapies as we knew we were in for a wait for biopsies and consultations. He takes daily supplements, juices many times a day, distills all water that goes in his body, does coffee enemas and has CBD oil. He has been well, but now he has to make the decision if he wants Chemotherapy or not. I’m worried about all side effects and risks involved with having the Chemo. Anyone else have the same sort of diagnosis and how did you deal with Chemo? What are people experiences with the Chemo?
