Advise on the precaution for Pancreatic Cancer

Sir,

My sister is diagnosed with Pancreatic Cancer and the same is also detected in Liver. Doctors say that it is in early stage. Please help me with some tips which could improve her quality of life in the coming days. The first Chemotherapy was done yesterday i.e. on Jan 29.

First of all, pancreatic cancer that has spread to the liver is not early stage. In fact it is last stage (stage 4). Sorry for the bad news but stage 4 pancreatic cancer cannot be cured and the entire treatment is now aimed at increasing his life span and to keep him as comfortable as possible. To that aim the chemotherapy is being given.
