I want to thank you all for your support to the message that I posted on 01-10-04. As you may know, I am a 29 yr. old female in North Alabama w/ CT scans showing a tumor in the pancreatic head. I finally had a biospy on 01-17-04 that dicovered that I have a rare Solid-pseudopapillary tumor that is beign. It is most common in females in their late twenties and has had less than 500 hundred cases documented in world literature. This is very good news! The bad news is that I must undergo the Whipple procedure to remove this potentially pre-cancerous tumor. Fortunately, only the head of the pancreas must be removed. I would love some advice as to what to expect with this surgery. Thank you especially to all of those that referred me to Dr. Charles Yeo and Dr. Vickers at UAB. Dr. Yeo was very helpful and has referred me to Dr. Vickers for the surgery. I appreciate you sharing your experiences with me for I know that I have escaped the worst. Good luck to all of you and my prayers are with you and your families.
