Post Whipple Issues

Patient's age: 47 Patient's gender: Female Diagnosis Date: Pancreatic Cancer, November, 2008 Treatment Received: Whipple Procedure, February, 2009 No chemo or radiation; feeding tube removed June, 2009)

I am the patient/survivor, experiencing: extreme night sweats, loss of appetite (seven pounds since May, 2009), vomiting, nausea, fatigue, the 'Whipple pain', insomnia. Having issues ingesting substances with sugar to offset or balance the 'salty' taste that lingers depending on what I've eaten or drank. Recent visit to doctor indicated the possibility of sugar imbalance. Just trying to figure out what the heck is going on. I thought I was making progress, but now I'm not so sure.

Has anyone else experienced some and/or all of the problems I've mentioned after s/he has had the Whipple Procedure?
