Meeting with Radiation oncologist

Today we met with the radiation guy. He was an hour late. Parveen, my aunt and myself were there--full house.

He said what we already knew/suspected and what Dr. A said.
Radiation will/may do more harm than help. The pancreas is sandwiched behind the stomach and small bowel so that causes more nausea when the beams go through those organs.

Radiation only adds a few months to ones life no. He said he's available in the background and meets with Dr. A regularly. He's the "aggressive treatment" guy.

If ever we get to a point where chemo etc. doesn't work, he's there.

Oh well. At least we looked at yet another option.
