    The chances of a person who is diagnosed with cancer of the pancreas is 6.7% according to cancer.gov

    These odds are in all honesty, zero for any particular patient with pancreatic cancer, if you are diagnosed with it, you WILL absolutely die, there is seriously nothing that can be done for you, you're a gonner.

    Now that we're done with all that bullshit... I'm curious about something.

    Is pancreatic cancer painful death, or a peaceful one ?

    What is the chances of death from pancreatic cancer being a peaceful one, due to being made euphoric, or otherwise incoherent because of the pancreas malfunctioning and can't create insulin ?

    I doubt any cancer death is peaceful, but you could google it yourself.

    We are all going to die, get used to that.

    I hope it is swift and sudden, personally.

    Going to just go with the flow and not worry about it.

    Life has been good.

    I am a breast cancer survivor. Basically with my cancer if it was out of the breast like the lymph nodes under my arms are more than likely it will spread. ( which mine did have lymph nodes involved)
    If it does show up in an organ, bones or blood you have a major fight ahead of you and basically stay in chemo just to survive. ( which I have seen in the chemo rooms.
    Eventually cancer wins ( not all ) when in organs, blood, or bones.

    PC is some serious shit

    The pancreas supplies so much.....to get cancer there is almost like main-lining it.

    My Granny, my aunt and a close friend died from it.
    Painful? Hard to say. Depends on the meds.
    But it is definitely deteriorating. Watched them waste away in less than a year.

    I wish you nothing but the beat

    Dear BlueJay28
    for cases where people were dying and were in pain,
    when nothing else helped, I found that the spiritual healing methods
    were at least able to overcome the pain. One friend of mine who was dying of
    an allergic reaction to alternate chemical therapy found no other relief for pain except the spiritual healing prayer.

    Some people report being cured of diseases that should have killed them.
    Others at least receive spiritual and personal peace even if death cannot be avoided.

    the resources I recommend for research into spiritual healing:
    * Dr. Francis MacNutt Christian Healing Ministries - Christian Healing Ministries "Healing" edition 1999 or later
    * Dr. Phillip Goldfedder Healing Is Yours
    * Olivia Reiner Listen to the cries of the children a non profit organization
    whose number is posted publicly on freespiritualhealing Resources for Healing and Forgiveness Therapy for free help to anyone who asks

    When nothing else works, I refer people here for free help with healing on whatever levels respond.
    If there is any way to save or prolong someone's life, these methods of healing either
    help that directly or indirectly by opening up more channels to find the right resources to help the person.

    Survival rates for pancreatic cancer are low.

    Cancer of the pancreas is actually 4 separate diseases...

    Major insight into killer pancreatic cancer
    Wed, 24 Feb 2016 - Pancreatic cancer is at least four separate diseases each with a different cause and needing a different treatment, scientists have discovered.

    Serious reply.

    An old friend was notified he had become heir to a very big fortune.

    Same day he was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer.

    He mused over coffee morning that his ship had come in - and sunk at the dock.

    He died only a few weeks later having only mild pain along the way. But he died of a sudden stroke. I blame that on his understanding what was to come.

    I heard that they are doing pancreas transplants these days. IIRC at the Cleveland Clinic.
