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?
