My wife just celebrated 7 years since her whipple. How old are you, I ask because radiation has a tendency to destroy internal organ tissue. My wife had a colonoscopy today and was found to have radiation colitis. The prognosis is poor as there is little to nothing that can be done. The chemo caused her to have a severe fatty liver and it has begun to go cirrhotic. Her bladder and rectum weakened and are now protruding into her vagina. She was 58 at diagnosis and will be 65 this year. It will most likely be her last. She beat PC but the treatments are going to kill her. Her wish at the time she was diagnosed was to see her grand daughter graduate high school... that event will take place this May 30. This is her experience there are others who have been much less and much more fortunate, everyone is different. God speed.
