Thank you so much for sharing this with us. It is incredibly valuable, and we all learn from your experience.

It reminds all of us to contact Johns Hopkins if we have pancreatic cancer that seems to run in our families, or even if we have pancreatic cancer PLUS other cancers that are common in our families. It teaches us that there are new genetic mutations that may be important to diagnose if/when we have cancer that our family members can check to see if they have inherited, which may also put them at risk. It teaches us how valuable EUS is as a screening test for PC.

And it reminds us that until we have a better cure for PC, our best chance at cure and survival is to catch PC as early as possible.

Hopefully, others will post if they have had the distal surgery to share their experiences.

We really wish you the best with your surgery. It sounds like you are in great hands. Keep us posted.
