Oops! Hit a key too soon. Don't know why all went so well other than no carcinoma, walked several times a day while in hospital, at home walked the house and to mailbox at the end of my steep uphill driveway, rested when got tired, stopped the tramadol, after few days, never took the oxycodone (never even filled the prescription), took Tylenol, ate small meals- mostly boiled or scrambled eggs, chicken slices, applesauce,- cant remember what else. I did lose weight, 12 lbs, and have never regained it. Am only 5ft.2in. tall and now weigh 105, so am 'little' but I like being 'light on my feet'! Went back to work full time after 8 weeks and have never had to take off for whipple related reasons since the surgery. Duodenum, gallbladder, 1/4 of pancreas and the duct removed. Stomach and pyloric valve totally intact and where they should be in abdomen! I know there are many more happy endings when just IPMN removed, but just aren't on this board. When I was diagnosed, I got on this board to educate myself about pancreatic cysts. This board was much more active at the time, and I learned a lot from the board discussions as well as the home page and the info on cysts. So hope all goes well with you. Are you near a teaching hospital?
