Post Whipple's procedure.
Hello, I'm new to this forum, married and a mother of a daughter and son, (grown and flown scientists). Last summer, I found it difficult to eat properly, developed jaundice, and after two sessions of endoscopy, went through an eight hour operation called a "Whipple's Procedure" to remove a type 1 tumour at the head of my pancreas, that blocked my bile duct. If it weren't for the jaundice I wouldn't have known about the tumour! I'm now undergoing chemotherapy (I have a PICC line) as they've seen a spot on my liver where some cells may have escaped. I'm up and down like a yo-yo, and always frightened, and lost two stones since this all began. I have to take Creon capsules all the time with meals, for ever! I miss riding my motorcycle, as I don't feel strong enough, that's the worse thing!
