Pancreas Cancer Web


My mom get in the Hospital 02/12/2002 for analysys becouse she gets addominal pain and the TAC scan shows a mass of 4cm and nothing more. For 3 weeks doctors made analysys and they said there was a possibility of pancreatite or a PC. They decided to operate her, she had whipple on the 7 march 2002. During the operation they found 1 met on the liver and a lot of limph nodes. The istological exams of limph nodes are all negative. They told us that may be she will have to do some chemo. We lives in italy, and i look for information and experience of anyone have been in the same situation. I'm really happy to find this board and i thanks every one wants to answer me.
