NEWLY DIAGNOSED


Hello, I am a 55yr old female who has recently had Whipples Procedure for Bile duct & pancreatic cancer. I was fortunate to be diagnosed early enough due to a severe dose of pancreatitis and turning a ghastly shade of yellow!! As I am only 3 months post surgery I am still at the stage of anxiety that the cancer has not been cured really and would truly value anyone who could help me to 'move forward'even though I have been assured by the biopsy results that the tumour was fully excised with clear margins and no lymphnode involvement. I am also still experiencing a continuing abdominal discomfort which I may well need to have checked out but wonder if this is a common experience? Love to hear from anyone who may have some answers for me, please.
