takeaway is that for the cancer that Jobs had, the average life expectancy is 2 years. He lived 8 more years and did not in fact rely solely on Alternative Medicine by any means. He got the whipple procedure and it's not something you would ever want to do. While it got rid of some of his cancer, it fucked his liver completely, so he also had to have a liver transplant. Then the cancer ate up his new liver.

His delay in getting the initial surgery is not that unusual, because he had a somewhat slower growing type of tumor (not that there are any "good" pancreatic cancers ).
