Varies : It really depends on type of cancer. Typical adenocarcinoma, perhaps a yr. Other types longer. Also depends on if chemo was helping or not. This is best answered by someone who is following him over time. The usual answer for all comers, 6 months to a yr, unfortunately.

Dr. Harper has given you good advice. There are some pancreatic cancer types that are less common than the familiar aggressive type that are often cured surgically or managed easily on medications. I wish you luck
