I am 3 weeks post-op distal pancreatectomy and splenectomy. Tumor was 1.5 cm
stage 1A no spread to lymph nodes or other organs. I had an outstanding
surgeon with 43 years experience and an excellent reputation. I am 63 fit and
active with an excellent recovery. I was up and walking the same day of
surgery and continued to walk everyday. 2 weeks post op I was walking 3
miles/day again. Surgery on a Monday and home by that Thursday morning.
Naturally it was painful to move around post op but every day the pain
improved with meds. When I went home I was able to manage my pain with just
Tylenol for the first week. Meeting with the oncologist today to discuss
treatment plan. Any questions feel free to contact me. Good luck.
