It's so nice to have you back on the board and I am glad that you are doing well. Three blocks? I couldn't do that before all of this started. Hang in there that full feeling will go away at some point. I had that feeling too and I didn't have a whipple, only my pancreas removed.
Concentrate on getting your energies up and not too much on what lies ahead. That will all come with time.
I start my chemo tomorrow after weeks of waiting and I am scared to death. Much like you were before surgery. But I will get this first treatment over with and at least I will know what to expect good or bad. I had my surgery December 6th. That was a long time to anticipate what was coming next so I hope that is how this goes for you. The anticipation is a killer.
Take care of yourself and keep us updated. Tell Shari and Bud thanks for the updates and they did a FINE job.
