Thymoma Cancer (pancreatic Cancer) and High Blood Pressure
Hello Ted, My 79 year-old father had his thymoma tumor removed in April 2011 and he was recovering well until 2 weeks ago, when he could not feel his legs. He went back to the same hospital and they are treating him right now for his erratic BP and will later do IVIG so that his nerve disorder can be fixed (GBS-like symptoms).
His white blood cells are very high and platelets very low. They thought it has something to do with steroids that he has been taking to cure his autoimmune problem with nerves (AIDP). They performed a CT Scan and found Stage IV metastatic thymic carcinoma (mass on the head of pancreas). They said he's got 2 to 3 months left to live and we refuse to accept that because he has been fighting real well.
Will you be able to help, please?
