Seriously, in the last four years, I literally had a doctor make a decision that put my life a serious risk, all for money, my mom's GP ignored her jaundice symptoms that turned out to be PC after I jerked her away from him and took her to the ER (diagnosis in two hours) and my dad had an oncologist mis-read a scan and tell him he had bone cancer and was dying - not true - and my husband had a doctor who told him his back injury was not a surgical issue and got him loaded up on narcotics instead, and told him he could drive, then we switched doctors and he had surgery and he's doing well.

Sorry, but there are TONS of crappy doctors out there. TONS! And like I posted above, we were told to anticipate problems like this with a whipple patient. MaryG had her whole pancreas removed. There are definitely doctors out there who don't want to touch her as a patient, and the whipple surgeons know this is commonplace.
