So i really liked that little piece of advice that you just gave as far as you know knowing when and how do you know when to be that friend who come up and say it's time to find more joy in your life you have to. You have to know the person who's grieving and they have to know that your motivations are to help now rather than just be annoyed about your sadness or annoyed about your discussions of your past the to have to be insane. It's the best. Interest of the person is being suffering sadness. And i think when that happens in you have the right personality. Encourage people to take their hand in. Go to therapy or go out to dinner or invite people to have dinner with you for some six hundred. Those are the kinds of things that people do very kindly without using the phrase.

I wanna say dating but back into into doing things into living life and finding the joy. How long did it take you to get back into that. A little longer on my sister got sick right after my husband died and it was my only other siblings so that added another year or two to the process but that she did not have pancreatic cancer. She had a different form of cancer. So i was a little slower to get back on the horse so to speak just to socialize but i find out there and lay. Was it any easier or sooner for. You was a year and a half and before that i i would get invited to people's phones. After it had been a year people would invite someone over. That i didn't know in i was invited. Both of the would be widowed or divorced and just alone and sometimes those were a little more awkward actually than meeting online because there was no pressure to it. It was simply just rear tab dinner. I think more and that was it but the spark was there the first time we met. I had more to do with the spark that we have a lot of other interests and just obviously a romantic tragedy each other beyond just a similar story and you guys are great looking couple and i do see that spark when we were able to be together briefly and you can see it. Just when you're joining our call our zim calls for our meeting. So i'm really happy that you guys have found each other and i really just to go back to some advice. Maybe that you could give to caregivers or and this is a question. I'm sorry that just popped up as far as when you were after you lost your your husband and your wife did. People tend to come closer to you or ten to navigate away. It was a mixed bag for as a woman Sometimes other couples were and more reluctant to include the odd one. which i think is more Something you see with women rather than with men that was my experience but will people. This sustain me really close family. My husband my husband's family and the great people that i worked with. I mean you know we all kept plotting on. There were very supportive. They weren't overly hovering but they they were always there if i needed somebody and they. They taught me how to laugh again and We're very accepting for me. That was e lead. You experience the same. Was your selena different. It was different. So i i approach grief. Therapy of mature church in love. Majority of therapy was not helpful was unfortunately made to feel a little guilty that i went back to work and mistake hero patients again which i found very therapeutic shared. That was the another member of the therapist therapy group. Who's a dentist and said. I'm finding the same thing so we left in just went back to work and felt much better just having a conversation with each other once the one on the phone so i found that there was something that were negative. Things were helpful of had some friends. Who would invite me over for thanksgiving christmas with their families and i had some who invited me over after a year to meet other women who also were in the same situation just in a large dinner party not really date would just show up. But then i had an equal number of friends who just became a little more distant. Didn't wanna talk about death. Didn't wanna talk about whether or not. I was sad. Probably just didn't want to see me. Tearful made her uncomfortable yeah. I don't think we know sometimes had a handle grief and people's feelings and what we want to say the right thing and sometimes we we don't and our actions. We wanted to do better. But sometimes they're action say something negative when that's not really what we mean. I know that you both obviously lost somebody to this disease and what we do see a lot is either people get very very involved or they tried to distance themselves as much as possible. Why did you choose to get involved in pan. Kan and bringing awareness Just in continuing the fight for your spouse's ethic probably ninety percent that the honor our our law spouses in and to been payback for all the gifts. We were giving people fighting for us and helping us like pan. Kan oncologist rents were helpful.

I gave you a gave everybody a little bit of a bio background on you go. Why don't you tell us a little bit about who you are. And what your passions are in your own words so he kinda get a feel for who. You are where you're coming from okay. So i'm a contractor by profession and just three years into my practice. My father was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. And as it was of course you know. Doctors gave him no hope and basically told him he would be dead in six weeks and he bought into that and he died very horrible deaths but to my training has a chiropractor and nutrition and understanding how the body can heal.

The effects of conventional medicine with cancer treatments and a lot of patients didn't fare very well bursts the patients who applied evidence based natural medicine. And i knew right away. You know what what i was going to do. And just like any other woman though. Of course there was shock and there was frustration and overwhelming. I but i recognize that. I just needed to get a a system going for myself where i could check off the boxes inside. That's kind of when i had that. Download about the seventy essential system. It's a step by step. Guide that if you follow you never have to fear disease again because it looks at every aspect of healing you know from nutrition to detox to emotions to dental tation bloodwork all of that and so when i put that together it made it a lot easier for me to go through my first healing journey and after i retired quote unquote after thirty years in practice and Sold my practice.

Wabc boys duke ellington and olympic gold. Medalist jesse owens. Despite their middle class status and cultural connections the hands berries were still subject to chicago's deeply ingrained. Housing segregation agreements known as restrictive covenants were widespread throughout the city. White property owners could collectively agree not to sell to african americans. This practice created a ghetto known as the black belt which ran through the south side when lorraine was eight years old. Her father secretly bought a home. In one of the so-called restricted heads in nineteen thirty seven when the family moved in a white mob attacked a brick was thrown through the window narrowly missing lorraine the local homeowners association filed an injunction for the hands berries to vacate lorraine her siblings were chased spat and beaten during their walks to and from school the supreme court of illinois doubled down on the legality of the restrictive covenant. And the hands. Berries were forced out of their home eventually the. Us supreme court overruled this ruling on a technicality. Thirty blocks subsequently opened up to black families across the south side while this ruling and the hands fight did not outlaw restrictive covenants. It did signal. The beginning of the end for the practice lorraine attended. Chicago's englewood high school where she became interested in theatre. She initially attended the university of wisconsin. Where she cut her teeth with the communist party but left after two years in one thousand nine hundred fifty lorraine moved to new york to be a writer by nineteen fifty one lorraine had found a home in harlem and began socializing with many of the great thinkers who had once visited her family back in chicago.

They married at her family home in chicago. In nineteen fifty three in nineteen. Six robert co wrote the hit song. Cindy oh cindy it's prophets allowed lorraine to stop working to focus on writing. She began developing a play that she initially called. The crystal stair langston hughes poem mother to son she would later changed the name to a raisin in the sun. This too was from a langston hughes poem called harlem. What happens to a dream deferred. Does it dry up like a raisin in the sun or faster like a sore and then run a raisin in the sun centers on a black working class family in chicago south side as they try to improve their financial situation. The patriarch of the family has died and a ten thousand dollar insurance payout is imminent they the money to buy a house in the cheaper all white neighborhood nearby to they use it to invest in a liquor store and education lorraine based many of the characters on the families who rented from her father and with whom she attended high school the cast safer one character was entirely black lorraine was in her twenties and the play itself dealt with racism life in chicago's black belt and the pain of assimilation into white culture topics that were considered risky for the predominantly white theater. Going crowd it took over a year to raise enough money to put the play up. When it debuted in nineteen fifty-nine a raisin in the sun was the first play written by a black woman to be produced on broadway and the first to be led by an african american director lorraine was twenty nine years old.

"pancreatic cancer" Discussed on Mayo Clinic Q&A
"I don't add to vagus great points. Those are absolutely A multitude of reasons. Why were uniquely position for this particular cancer the other aspect that one thing. I've noticed since i've been here is what i refer to as the pollution of practices. So because we're mayo clinic where a tertiary referral center so patients have gotten the diagnosis typically. And they've got an opinion standard of care opinion and they came here to get another opinion. They didn't come here to get the same opinion. They came here for something beyond standard of care. That's the point. And if we feel that we can offer them something beyond standard of care because again standard of care leads to standard outcomes. No one wants to standard outcome for pancreas cancer. They want extraordinary outcomes so we have to be able to do something extraordinary now. I couldn't do my practice without the support of of the people. Like the pancreas clinic and all the procedure lists nor could i do my practice without the radiologists imaging with all the intervention lists to help these patients get through surgery. So i'm able to do something that i have never done before. No one's ever done before. And i then push my fellow colleagues to do things that they're not comfortable with and we sort of revolve. We all get better. So i an operation has never been done. I need someone to get me out of a complication that they've never done before. Either and we kind of moved together and that's for example of agee mentioned the pet. Mr so that was a machine that came to mayo. They still wouldn't certain how best to use it. And i heard some of the radiologists discussing it. And i said this would were perfectly for pancreatic cancer. This is what we're we're looking for. Because i need a way to be able to tell that the chemotherapy were giving as effective. Otherwise e. c. t. scans are poorly effective at that and it went from pet. Mr never being used for anything. Now it's the pancreas cancers the number one indication for a pet amar and. That's the first thing i look at when i see a patient back after initial chemotherapy. What is better. Marshall is the chemo effective or not. Because that's the big question so we've kind of choline volved and we're continuing to do so. I also actually inadvertently forgot to mention the interventional diagnostic and intervention. Indus- group is that we have. That's a huge huge group and we have so many experts who can practically do an intervention on the bank is with the help of the scopes. So that's another big group that plays a very important. Yeah not many people say no. They say this may be difficult to. We've not done this bill. Let's try something else and usually that ends up with a good outcome. I love that you both bride up that mayoclinic collaborative approach to care and team based care because it's one of the things that patients comment the most on to me as a physician. Believe how well the mayo. Clinic providers and physicians communicate amongst themselves. Doesn't take weeks to months to get work done. And have the joy of carrying a for many of dr treaties patience on the hospital service when their inpatient and they are exceedingly complimentary of the coordination of care that they've received the higher level of care and the anticipation that they have of having good positive outcome. So thank you both for sharing with us. Today are thanks to mayo clinic. Physician surgeon dr mark. Judy and gastroenterologist asante begay for with us here today to talk about pancreatic cancer on november gives pancreatic cancer awareness month. We appreciate you being with us today. I hope you'll learn something. I know that i did mayo clinic..

This is very very important reason because it actually functions. In vide- seamless manner despites having such a big group which once again doesn't exist anywhere then actually very fortunate that mark you know has gone back for the training and came back here. I know he has become virtually champion of pancreatic against a all of us who are involved in this disease but many many years but now everything is channel in a way that it medley is going to achieve two important things. one is most important. The best outcomes for the patient which allergy doctor truth. There has already spoken about and the second new research new opportunities. With once again we are right at the forefront. So these are the reasons why i think if i have a family member or a friend ought if it happens to me i would not like to be treated anywhere else..

"That leaves another proportion of fifty percent of patients who at least on the initial imaging and staging evaluation. They appear to be what we call. Non metastatic localized to the pancreas and those patients may be candidates for additional treatments such as radiation or surgery in addition to chemotherapy. Now we do know that patients who undergo an operation to remove their tumor can live significantly longer than those patients who do not have an operation however there are certain limitations and in order to get the benefit from an operation. There are three primarily things that we look at number one has to do with a margin. So what is the margin mean f. I'm to perform an operation for pancreatic cancer. I have to remove the tumor without leaving any cancer cells behind. If i do an operation and leave cancer cells behind Essentially we've negated the benefit of that operation second we can't have any evidence of metastasis or spread of the cancer. There's no benefit removing the primary tumor that has read other distant organs and third. The patient has to be an excellent fitness to be able to tolerate whatever magnitude of operation. That is so that they cannot ri. They don't get a life threatening complication that would prevent them from getting the chemotherapies that they require. So those are the three things we look. Now in general traditionally if a patient had a localized tumor Meaning it does not involve any significant blood vessels and were the pancreas is located. There are critical number of veins and arteries those patients would typically undergo an operation We've been doing that for several decades. And unfortunately the long term outcomes are poor meaning a significant portion of those patients did end up. Having a positive margin a significant portion of those patients develop early recurrent disease and distant sites meaning. That was probably. They're already we just weren't aware of it and third. Those patients either suffered complications from their operations. Didn't recover well enough to receive any chemotherapy. The there's a big movement into treating patients prior to the operation with a combination of chemotherapy of plus or minus radiation. The other. big thing that we've done here is doing more extensive operations so again typically only about fifteen percent of patients whose tumors were localized to the pancreas alone were candidates for surgery. We've expanded expanded that criteria to patients who now have to visit involves significant blood vessels such as veins and arteries and because of our work. We are now able to apply that the treatment paradigm to a larger fraction of patients and with improved chemotherapy with appropriate radiation and with these complex operations. Getting them through that we are now taking a greater proportion of patients to the operating room which was significantly improve long term outcomes meaning survival which is what the patients are interested in. Maybe we could talk a little bit more about that. We know that this diagnosis of pancreatic cancer has carried significant mortality. So improvements are you..

"You doing Saturday afternoon glorious day here tries. I hope you're taking advantage of it. This week. Alex trebek's who? Think is well known for a lot of things certainly his work on jeopardy. Most recently, his revelation that he has pancreatic cancer stage, four pancreatic cancer this week. Alex trebek's said that he is quote in near remission, according to doctors. He made the statement to people magazine. And if anybody knows anyone that has pancreatic cancer. It is it is one of the most devastating kinds of cancer to get because by and large don't know you have it until it is too late. As someone who has. Bennett a caregiver to a cancer survivor, and someone who's lost his spouse to cancer. It's when you hear things like near remission, you just stop and you pause. Because what, what is near remission mean, you're either in remission, or you're not in remission. And staying remission is a very difficult thing to do. But there are those who have had cancer and have survived and have thrived and have lived great lives. And one of those people as my next guest James temperament Templeton is a thirty year cancer survival survivor. He's a health advocate, and has written a book called a used to have cancer, how I found by own way back to health. So maybe he can shed some light onto what near remission means. And whether or not Alex trebek's future is a little bit brighter today than what it was even a month ago. So let's bring him in on the acute hearing centers dot com hotline. He is James Templeton. He joins us right now. James, good afternoon. How are you? Hello. With you. Thank you for thank you for joining us here now. Alex trebek's used a phrase near remission. I've never heard that phrase. I think you're either in remission, or you're not do you can you tell me what near remission means? Well, I'm kinda wondering myself but near remission probably means that, you know, after the chemotherapy, that he's been doing that. It seems like the cancer you know, have not spread that much. So it seems like it's raking a little bit. So they think that maybe because usually with pancreatic cancer things start to really either. They go fast or they slow down and maybe it slowing down a little bit. Yeah, yeah. It says here that according to him. His doctors say that his tumors of already shrunk more than fifty percent. So there, I mean there in lies, good news. I don't mean to minimize good news. That that's better than them increasing by one hundred percent. So maybe that's, that's exactly what it means. But, but you're right about pancreatic cancer. I thankfully, I don't have anyone in my immediate family that has had it, but I do know people that have had pancreatic cancer, and it's, it's devastating. You don't have by large once it's discovered. That's it because it's it's it masks itself in so many different ways as it begins begins to grow. So I mean, if you're going to get cancer, that's probably not the kind you want. Is it? Pancreatic cancer is only one one to four percent chance of survival. And unfortunately, people don't know. And a lot of times their symptoms are like they'll have a stomach ache or they'll have a pain in their in their, you know, their abdomen. And they'll think it's, you know, maybe sensitive is or that, or they'll go on, and on, and the doctors don't check for anything until the person is, basically been over with pain, and it's been going on for some while and you got to really understand that, when you have something your body's trying to get your tension. And if you don't do something, you know, then, then a lot of times, you know, you, it, it gets very advanced, and it's tough, it's difficult to most difficult type of cancer that I've heard of and I've actually interviewed people that have gotten well from stage four pancreatic cancer, but they had to make a lot of changes in their life. Life. And and my, my. Worry is that, you know, when you just do chemotherapy, you know, you've got to also make changes in your life, because a lot of times, you know, if you can survive for a while, you know, it's, it's, it's a miracle, but you gotta really make changes in jump on. It is soon as you can while you have the energy because if you don't you could get into trouble real quick. When it comes back. Let's, let's talk about your story, your thirty year cancer survival, you according to this year, you healed yourself for me terminal diagnosis by using things like alternative medicine and healing. Modalities. Okay. What, what kind of cancer, will you diagnosed with and giant coming off coming away from that? I. Diagnosed with stage four. And I didn't catch it early either. So it was very deep deep with Millon than it stage four at certain level, and it ended up spreading into my lymphatic system and that meant that it was basically, you know, could go anywhere in. It's it was a grass ID and I was told I we had a twenty percent chance of surviving three to five years. If I could get through the chemotherapy treatments that they wanted me to do which was eighty experimental chemotherapy treatments. So this is this is going back into the eighty s when when when this happened. So you get this diagnosis, and I it's, it's terminal. So you had two choices at that point. Okay. I'll go through with the chemotherapy, what I probably need to think outside the box here to see if there are other ways to try and get myself. Well again, so tell me about that. And how you came to that decision to. And this is thirty years ago to stay alive. So it wasn't really all that embraced thirty years ago. Tell me about about that, and how that helped you get to where you are today. Well, I was thirty two years old at that point, when I was told only had that flight chances, you know, it really upset me. And here I am desperate because it didn't know what else to do, and I got a phone call and a phone call came from a minister to church that I went to from time to time, and he said to me, says, look, I've been praying for you. And he says a lot of people deter ch- have been praying for you. And he says, you just gotta get in there, and you gotta fight like Haley says, you can't give up and it got my tension, and it really made me start thinking that maybe I wasn't all along with this after all, and I started to pray shortly after he hung up, you know, and I started to pray really hard and I wasn't a real religious guy or anything, but I started to pray. And, you know, after I got through praying and this prayer was like every cell in my body was praying. I never felt that kind of energy when I was praying but, you know, twenty minutes after that prayer. I got an uncle in the hospital door that a friend of mine, I hadn't seen in seven years comes through the door, and he has his piece of paper and his hand and this was a book review about a guy cured himself of cancer using a natural diet and lifestyle. Well, I didn't know about these things, and I was just a regular guy, and I ate a regular diet and everything else. And I exercise a lot. But, you know, I just didn't know about this. And when I read this, I absolutely knew that I was supposed to do this. I felt this inside of me intuitively that I was supposed to do this diet, that this guy talked about, and I had him go get this book. I read the book I couldn't put it down. And I thought, well, if this guy can do it. Why can't I do it? What was the diet, James? What was the diet, what the gist of that book, what, what were they telling what were they telling you to do diet was a diet, and it was called the macrobiotic diet, and I'd never heard of that. But I found out real quick about it. And this is a diet that consisted of organic foods all organic and, you know, it was a it was a diet, based on fifty percent whole grains, and again, it was organic and twenty five percent or so vegetables organic cruciferous vegetables alien vegetables, which are garlic onions, leeks, a lot of that Christopher which we've all heard of, but it also had ten percent of beans like these small beans. Like lentils, chick peas Dookie beans, which were known, you know, more on in an eastern in Japan and places like that, and they were small non fatty bees, but also ten percent soon. Oops, like me, so suit, which was more of that you find you know, on a more of a Japanese. Oh. But it was ten percent suits and five percent. Vegetables, which I'd never eaten any Seve it vegetables, which, I guess you could say see we. Yeah. So you're you see this book and you see this diet, and it probably seems strange to you, because you'd never want can tell was kind of food. You've eaten before, so you start eating this food. You, you got this terminal diagnosis, immediately start eating this food, you're going through chemotherapy. I'm guessing. And so what happens does? The did it start your tumor. Start shrinking immediately did the melanoma goal. What happened at that point? Well, what happened is I started. And I started very excited after about three months or so, because I really took a while to get into it. I had surgery and I you know, was not feeling great but I got into it, and I felt like starting to feel almost high, the food. I started to feel this energy that I never felt before meeting. And, and I just started to really detoxify started to really eliminate more and just just on a very regular basis. And I learned that this food, you know, was really like medicinal and it was like the medicine I needed because I just really felt good. But, you know, I just never had any more problems. And I stayed on this diet, you know, and I still, you know, follow a diet, not exactly the same diet. But, you know, diet with a lot of the same. But what you started this, by the way we're chatting with James Templeton, thirty year cancer survivor. In the wake. Of Alex trebek's saying that he is in, quote, unquote near remission. I guess what I'm trying to get at here. Will you convince or was anyone else convinced that this diet, you were on was as much responsible for you, in essence of beating cancer than anything that was done chemically to you? Well, I, I knew intuitively because I also taking vitamin C. Hi mounts vitamin c along with this, and I learned about this while I was in the hospital. And I you know, I just knew. It was working, you know, there was a lot of lot of stories of people that had healed using this diet. So I felt like hey if they can do it. I can do. And if it wasn't gonna work for me. It wasn't gonna work for anybody else. I was going to set the example. So I started to get this sense of hope in the sense of mind over matter that, that I was going to do this, and I think that that's so important because, you know, like Alex travek he feels that it's a lot of the prayers that he got from people. And, you know, there's a lot of good wishes going out his way, which I'm sure there is. And so, you know, he's starting to think positive he's starting to think that, hey, I can beat this thing. And, you know, and if I can, if anybody can I can't he's starting to feel that..

"And now his PSA zero he is doing well, his sexual life works is urinary life works. And this is the work that we do every day at thirty four Broadway Broadway at thirtieth street, and I believe we have a caller on the line. Hello. How are you? Hello. What's your question today? I I've been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. I'm sorry to hear that chemotherapy about two weeks ago. And I feel bad. What is your name? Side effects have not been bad names out how and how old are you? I'm eighty eighty one and is a cancer only in the pancreas is it spreads. I had an operation that. Tell me where Seattle what kind of operation. Did you have? Eight like the fix areas. And I guess they took out a. Lymph nodes and stuff from the right in the area of my belly button. Ended the cancer spread to the liver or the major orchestras. It's only in the pancreas and the media adjacent area. Yes. The tail of the pancreas. Okay. And what's your question today? I'd like the personal. I know you have a book a book of some kind, right? And you can get more information. I would like to see how I'd like to wait. A while if the chemo works at all, and then I'll probably come to see what broadly. Okay, we'll get the book. Right. I don't wanna do the address because although this is address and they'll come and visit you so you can call our after hours or you can call right now. But call a different phone number our office numbers call tomorrow. Okay. But I want to answer your question. The reason to consider our treatment is that compared to chemo chemo only works number one in a minority of patients. So it hasn't most likely it's even if it works it only worked for short period of time, and then the cancer grows back so chemotherapy by itself doesn't cure pancreas cancer. So that's one reason not to be in love with chemotherapy. Is it doesn't cure the cancer, it might temporarily shrink it, and then it will grow back number one number two when you say, well, you're feeling pretty good. Well, we don't know what dose of chemotherapy, you got your doctor may have reduced the dose of chemotherapy because you're a bit older. They might be afraid that age eighty they're afraid they're going to hurt you with the chemotherapy. So you don't really does. Why understand once every three weeks? Right. But I want to explain to you. You know, your question why not feeling anything? Well, you're just beginning the chemotherapy. And that the toxicity of chemotherapy, it's like bricks and appear amid as as those gets more and more dose after dose after dose, usually the toxicity builds up. So that's another reason why may not be feeling the may have reduced the dose because of your age or other condition. They just started it. And again, it doesn't offer any cure. Whereas with us if we knew for example, the cancer is in the tail of the pancreas and the lymph nodes around the tail then you have a chance to be cured with our treatment. There's a chance to be cured. And with chemotherapy, only there is no chance to be cured. So there's lots of reasons to think about coming in. And there's really lots of reasons to come in soon because let's say you don't know if the chemo. Is going to work in you or not. And that's his say today. There's no cancer in the liver. But in a month, there is cancer delivered. Then you've kind of lost your chance to get treated before. It becomes stage four cancer. So waiting for cancer is not necessarily a good thing. Sometimes you or other people regret waiting for me in the bloodstream. Yes, it means. It's traveled to other organs like the bloodstream like the liver or the lungs or someplace like that. You're saying in mind and the. Whatever's good for you. Except most insurances Medicare Medicaid. You can come in. You can even take one of the Xpress buses in. Okay. Right. Okay. If you have other questions, you can call me and you want the booklet on DVD just car office and the office number is two one two choices. It's two and two four six thirty. On the radio few months.

You mentioned pancreatic cancer. That's let's one of those diseases where. It's not looking good on paper when you get that diagnosis. Now, it's pretty much a death sentence for the most part.

"With the wind by sending out special silk threads but scientists have been puzzled by how relatively large spiders some up to six minute meters loan manage this impressive feat called ballooning so researchers watched how crab spiders took off they saw that the spiders raised a front leg in there to check if wind speeds and temperature was suitable for ballooning the spiders then spun several specialized silk threads up to four meters long in a triangular sheet find out more in prosper on adji next up reporter jeff marsh has been looking into a nature paper about weight loss in pancreatic cancer loss and tissue wasting early warning signs of several different cancers in pancreatic cancer this wasting can come several months before the actual diagnosis but it's not just an early warning sign this muscle and fat wasting phenomenon has long with thoughts to reduce a patient's life expectancy keeping patients in good shape is key to helping the buddy with stunned the effects of chemotherapy and surgery for example a study out this week has now used a mouse bottle of pancreatic cancer to shed light on the functions that go awry this disease as is often the case with science the findings have raised more questions than they've answered forbid of context i i called but says lure from the caroline skin institute in sweden his research specializes in the function and cancers of the pancreas he didn't work on this study has written an accompanying news and views article first of all weight loss is an early sign in several kansas even prior to the diagnosis off a cancer and there's some also special with pancreatic cancer at least the way we looked at it in the past in that the gland is producing juice one point five liters on average per day and then it's squeezing out this liquid together with the bio and help digest food most of the pancreatic consuls actually located in the head of the pancreas and then obstructing the duct which is a leading then to weight loss and tissue loss because you cannot digest food the way you could have done it without the tumor so that was one of the theories for how pancreatic cancer causes this fats and muscle wasting but the matz it was by no means settled to better understand the mechanism behind this basting phenomenon i spoke to laura deny i or throw in the current study so in this paper we were looking at this fat and muscle wasting that happens with pancreatic cancer and we wanted to ask whether pancreatic cancer cells themselves are causing this effect or if it's something about them growing in the pancreas is what we did is that we took pancreatic cancer cells and wild type quote unquote normal mice and we injected these pancreatic cancer cells either under the skin or we form a surgery where we expose the pancreas in injected the cancer cells into the pancreas we did various iterations at this experiment but will we found was that the cells that are in the pancreas promote this wasting phenomenon whereas the cells that were under the skin did not so this suggested that it's not something that the pancreatic cancer cells do themselves but rather that is something about growing in the pink ras that's causing this this effect so what does this tell you that the when you had the chuma in the pen chris but that wasn't necessarily an obstructed duct it still lead to muscle wasting we do know that the extra korean part of the pancreas the part that helps you break down the food is somehow involved and we know that from the diet experiments that we did where we had mice with pancreatic cancer in either fed them control diet or a diet that was supplemented with this pancreatic enzymes and when the mice had this die that was supplemented with pancreatic enzymes they had less of the fat wasting but that it didn't play very well for the mice themselves to know so if you are improving this this wasting effect that we see with pancreatic cancer you would expect that you'd also improve survival we actually found is that the mice that had this diet that was up lamented with pancreatic enzymes and they had less wasting actually had lower survival or died faster unloader both told me that this is counterintuitive given the doctors caring for patients with pancreatic cancer the world over supplement pancreatic enzymes to patients as a stunned of care this kind of tissue wasting is widely believed to reduce life expectancy so the team decided to look at some clinical data for humans what ended up happening is that as we were getting.

"Care and the cancer patients stories you tell because this one in the book that is fairly arresting and inspiring and also i just had recent experience with someone close to me and my family recently died of pancreatic cancer and i was you know for the first time in many many years in the situation of being close to someone who was dying and just being taken through every stage of the medicalisation process of death where treatment is no longer treatment and your you go into a hospice situation and eight i was struck at every stage along the way that the promise of bringing equanimity to the person who's dying it's really not just about the person who's dying the state of mind of the person is dying affects everyone around him or her and to some degree this is just luck of the draw i mean it's just you know you're you're lucky not to have dementia you're lucky not to be an excruciating pain and you know there are treatments for both of those things are in the first case basically nonexistent in the second imperfect but you know as it happened my family member got very lucky and he died in a state of just virtually unbroken gratitude and love and it was just him he won the death lottery essentially and the effect why what happened he was not someone who was at all overcome by regret or he was just feeling gratitude and love for seemingly every conscious moment that was left to him and the experience of being with him and mourning the loss of him was totally different than if he had been in some radically different state of being terrorized by the contents of his his own mind sure which is the way many people die and you tell the story in your.
