AM 58, had Distal Pancreatectomy with Splenectomy in 2007 to remove tumor in tail of Pancreas. Now have tumor in head of pancreas. Also became diabetic after first surgery, and have been having problems being able to control diabetes. Seen surgeon in Chicago (at Northwestern) but seems Northwestern has a huge communications problem. For past week & 1/2 have been unable to get surgeons nurse to respond. We had CT Scan ran, but neither the surgeon or nurse has gotten back with me to go over results..and they've had results for week & half. I'm not getting indication that Northwestern is place to go. I live in southern Michigan. Does anyone know of other top notch surgeons & hospital in Midwest, for Pancreatic Diseases and surgeries?
