Hi Jim! Welcome to the world of Whipplemania! :) I am a 6 year survivor. My tumor was at the head of the pancreas with two positive lymph nodes. You can read my bio under "Jane". Go to the top of the page and click on "patient/caregiver bio board". I had a tough time after the surgery and during treatments. (constant nausea and vomitting) There were days I didn't want to continue with the treatments but I hung in there and so glad I did. I will see my daughter attend her prom tomorrow night and graduate next week. One down, two to go. I will be 47 yrs old this year and have a lot of living yet to do. Thank God he has allowed me to do it. I always say "God didn't want me and the devil didn't want the competition".. so I'm stuck raising teenagers. :-) I still have digestive problems and remain very thin. I take Pancrease with meals and snacks and Zantac for acid and reflux. You will have good days and bad days, but eventually the good days out number the bad ones. Hang in there! Let us know how you are doing. Love and hugs, Jane
