My husband had Whipple surgery January of 08. Our son started having
digestive problems in March of 09 He was told it was his gall bladder. In
April 09 they did surgery . Doctor came out and said he never say anything
like it and sent him to an Oncologist. He died in June 09. He was only 44. I
questioned myself, Why didn't I see it? I should have known. I missed it. The
Doctor missed it. I found out later after looking over my son's records that
they suspected PC from the first scan in March. No one ever told us that. So
many Doctors need training in spotting the signs too.
My husband lasted six years and two months.Even after seven years the what
if's still occur. I wish you peace and know you did all you could too. We
have to accept that and go on. We know our loved ones would want that. Our
lives have changed forever. Hugs.
