Pancreas Cancer Web


I will be going on to my 53rd month since my whipple. I am 63 years old. I was diagnosed on June 16th, 2000. I had the whipple, 9 months of chemo and 26 hits of radiation. I was back at work within 3 weeks of my whipple. My job as an importer has me spending half of my time in Asia. I am able to eat everything. I exercise whenever I can. The most important bit of advice that I can give is when this beast appears seek out the best medical facilities available with the best doctors. Be positive and have as many family and friends near you.Also know that a positive attitude means so much.
