B.GA 2010 Update

It has been eight years now since diagnosis and surgery.

I am having to watch my weight. The doctors say I am fine, but shouldn't gain more weight. For many reasons, not least of which is not wanting to upset the ability to control my diabetes without meds, I don't want to become overweight. My diet and eating habits have not changed but I gradually gained ten pounds over the past two years. I think it has to do with the change in the Creon formulation. I can't prove it, but I know I have gained weight steadily since they issued Creon 12000. I am also getting on in years(58). Maybe that's the difference. (For those who struggle to keep weight on, please know I don't intend to be offensive. I had trouble with weight loss at first and thought it could be useful to know that in at least one case, the problem reversed itself over time.)

Otherwise, all is the same as I posted in the update last year.

I have been reading about exciting developments in early detection of PC. Hoping for big breakthroughs in early detection and treatment.

Best wishes to all on this board.
