Has anyone had any attacks post whipple?? It feels like a stabbing in the upper abdomen with pain shooting around the bra line in the back and loss of voice like iv had the wind noked out of me. It lasts 5-15 min. and then in very soar for about 1-2 days. Initially after the attack i have to take 2 oxycodone to relieve the pain to sleep.??????? It freaks me out!! please respond with any comments.

Hello...my father had the Whipple Operation done in March.....and he has said that he gets those attacks often....he hasn't done anything about them....but I thought I'd let you know that it does occur in others..

Hi....my husband is 62 and just had the whipple 8/27/04 and he has the same breath taking pains that make him break out in a cold sweat and double over. Glad we are not alone. Hope it gets better for you.

Yep! I have those sharp, stabbing pains too. My oncologist said they were muscle spasms. It's nice to know that I'm not alone. My Whipple was 10/14/2004. When was yours?
