Message Text I talked to Dr. Yeo today and he agreed I should have the distal pancreatectomy for the cystic mass in the body-tail of my pancreas. I can't believe I took it this far as I wasn't going to have anything done.I have to have my doctor call my insurance company to see if they will let me go out of network to go to john hopkins. Dr . yeo said the same thing make sure it is at a facility that does a lot of these surgerys. If my insurance company doesn't go for this I'm not having it done. I haven't decided for sure yet anyway as I am scared to death from hearing about how bad these surgerys are.
