Question by llcriticll: Does living past your cancer life expetancy happen often?
My grandmother was diagnosed with stage 3 pancreatic cancer and they are giving her 6 to twelve months. I was just wondering if people have had loved ones live a while past thier cancer life expectancies
Answer by Denisedds
Yes it is possible. The 5 year survival for stage 3 is 6.8% with surgery and 1.8% without.
Sometimes cancer patients live far longer than their doctor ever expected, but this does not often happen with pancreatic cancer.
