January 25, 2008 my husband had the whipple. . He has had many many complications but is still here. This is a horrible and unpredictable cancer. He was a T3 N1 Mo before his surgery. His tumor was 3.5 cm. By all of his reports he shouldn't be here. He has used more then nine lives. He is a fighter. He had three chemo's of Gemzar, radiation and the Gemzar was at reduced amounts. He has not had any other treatments for cancer since September 2008. He has fought open wounds,C.diff, Osteoporosis , adrenal gland insufficiency , copd, has an ileostomy because of c.diff. He had close margins. I am not trying to upset anyone, just want you to know it is possible and worth it to continue to fight. Our son (44)was diagnosed with Pc seventeen months after his dad and only lasted two months, nothing could be done. We all need to do what we can to fight this. Any amount for research will help. We need so much more awareness of PC. Don't give up on yourself or anyone. Keep fighting. The best to all of you other Supermen and Superwomen out there. Together we can make a difference.
