As for Trebek's condition he's stay on as host of Jeopardy!, which is a great sign. He last thorough update came in September in a Good Morning America interview.
"In terms of getting my strength back, that hasn't happened, unfortunately," he told the ABC morning show. "I was doing so well, and my numbers went down to the equivalent of a normal human being who does not have pancreatic cancer, so we were all very optimistic. And they said good, we're gonna stop chemo, we'll start immunotherapy.0comments
"I lost about 12 pounds in a week and my numbers went sky high — much higher than they were when I was first diagnosed, so the doctors have decided that I have to undergo chemo again."
He added, "Occasionally it will cause excruciating pain in my lower back. Other times it's fatigue, other times it's nausea. It varies. Cancer is mysterious in more ways than one."
