Pancreas Cancer Web


My husband Art,was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in Feb.21,2004. We were told he was a candidate for the Whipple Procedure .He had the whipple done on March 1st.,2004.He was diagnosed with a'sarcomatoid'pancreatic carcinoma. His gallbladder,head of pancreas,portion of small bowel,lymph nodes were removed,one third of his stomach were removed. He was working and never was sick!prior to this.He worked in the Flexographic printing from 18yrs. to 59yrs. Is there anyone that has the same tye of cancer that has or is working in the printing business ? He got most of the side effects after the operation,but it is almost one year and now we are waiting for the CA19-9, and on March 1st.2005 he gets his C.T.done.He is doing great so we are hoping the cancer won't reoccur.I am Sharon, his wife and caregiver.
