    That just makes me weep,Icepik. So very unfair.

    Icepik, I'm very sorry for your loss. I hope you gave her Doctor an earful. Seems like laziness on his part.

Put her on medication for months. She used to tell me all the time that she thought he was wrong about what she had. It was only when my sister brought her into emergency when she became jaundice and feeling faint did the doctor on staff diagnose her with pancreatic cancer. We were told the next day by a specialist that she was in the advanced stages. We were told pancreatic cancer is inherited and there was a one in four chance that one of us (her 4 children) would also get pancreatic cancer.
    Icepik, I really sympathize with what you went through. I had a similar experience with a parent and it is really, really tough. Even today, I was looking at family photos and thinking about how fast everything happened and how none of the doctors caught it.
