Thanks Lillian. I will have my treatments at Emory. As of now Dr. Kauh. I don't know anything about these doctors. The surgeon (Dr. Charles Staley) at Emory did my whipple and he recommended Dr. Kauh. He said that PC being what it is, it would be better for me to see someone like Dr. Kauh rather that a general oncologist who may be closer. Also, I can be in a clinical trial using Bevacizumab(Avastin)or Cetuximab (Erbitux)combined with Gemcitabine, Capecitabine, and radiation therapy in treating Patients With Pancreatic Cancer That Has Been Completely Removed By Surgery. Could have gone to UAB, Tampa, Vanderbuilt, JHH, or MD Anderson but I thought Emory was a good hospital. I certainly did receive good care while hospitalized for the whipple. How do I know if I need enzymes? Dr. Staley said I could get them if I needed them -- how do I know? My bowl movements are usually yellow -- would that have anything to do with it? Thanks for the Prayers!!! mike
