My Father was diagonised with CA Pancreas in the year 2011, he under went Whipple surgery and Tumor was marked as Type 1 (B) where portal vein was marginally removed. No Chemo or radiation was given.

Now a year later he has local recurrence of the tumor and was suggested for Cyber Knife procedure. While he was scheduled for Cyber knife , he got GI Bleed - once because of the ulcer (due to ecosprin tablet) and secondly due to the blush at Hepatico Jejunostomy site. This was controlled by giving Octeriode injection. Bleeding stopped and its been 10days now and he is doing well.

Recent PET and MRI scan done for Cyber knife surgery now shows Thrombosis at Portal vein and Spleen and the Surgeon does not wants to proceed with Cyber knife for him. He wants the Thrombosis to be tackled first and then the tumor. If we opt for Cyber knife now , the Surgeon says it will greated risk.

Could you pls suggest if we should go ahead with cyber knife treatment or just do not do anything.

Thanks

Regards
