Pancreas Cancer Web


It has been eleven years since Whipple Surgery. Day to day life is much the same as posted last year. One thing has changed since I adopted the Low Glycemic Load diet approach. I apparently no longer have the 'Whipple Pain'. Whether this is due to the change in diet, or something else, I cannot be certain. I know I continued to have them, although less often as years passed, up to the time I changed my diet. My diabetes is still under control with the diet and exercise, no additional meds. I still take Creon with food. Regular exercise (walking and gardening) remains part of my routine.

Still hoping for our researchers to develop a method of early detection for PC. In my case, early detection gave me not only a chance for life, but also the potential for good quality of life. My wish is for the same outcome for others who find themselves facing the diagnosis of PC.
