HELLO THERE, FIRST OF ALL I WOULD LIKE TO SHARE MY STORY WITH YOU. I HAD A 43 YEAR OLD SISTER WHO HAD THE SAME SYMTOMS THAT YOU SAID YOUR WIFE HAS. SHE HAD ALL SORTS OF TEST DONE AND THE DOCS DIDNT PIN POINT IT . SHE HAD AN ERCP AND THEY DID A BRUSHING AND SENT THAT OFF. IT CAME BACK AND IT SHOULD SOME CANCER CELLS, SO HER DOC WENT IN AND FOUND IT TO BE PC. SO HE THEN DID A WHIPPLE , FOLLOWED BY 5 WEEKS OF CHEMO AND RAD.SHE FOUGHT HARD AND LOST THE BATTLE. I WOULD TELL YOU AND YOUR WIFE TO PLEASE GET A SECOND OP. SADLY TO SAY BUT WHERE WE LIVE THERE ARE NO GOOD DOCS. WE TRIED TO TALK HER INTO GOING TO JOHN HOPKINS BUT SHE DID NOT WANT TO GO. KEEP US POSTED. GOD BLESS YOU
