So sorry to hear about your friends husband. If u could give a little more info then we can help you better. Do you know what type of pancreatic neuroendocrine tumor he has. Is it a functioning or non functioning tumor. Most pnets grow slowly so there is time to be diliberate unless it is functioning tumors like mine. A functioning pnet releases a hormone that gives you symptoms so in my case it was important to get the tumors out quickly so we found tumors and 2 weeks later I had whipple.
