My mom has PC. She should be having her Whipple surgery within a month. She fears the recovery from the surgery almost to the point where she doesn't even want to have the surgery done. I was hoping to get some feedback on what to expect during the recovery period. Do the pain meds help? I've read 2-3 months for recovery. Is this accurate? She thinks life after the Whipple will be unbearable even though I have showed her many survivor stories. Thank you.
