My husband is facing surgery in 2 weeks. In 1998, he was diagnosed with Renal Cell Cancer, he had his left kidney removed. This past January, Renal Cell Metastasized to his spleen and pancreas...we were told it was very rare for this to occur. April of this year he had his Spleen, Gall Bladder, Tail of the Pancreas and some lymph nodes removed. The beginning of this month after a routine exam, Cancer has returned, it's now in the neck of the Pancreas and the Duodenum. The first of the year, he will have Whipple Surgery, removing all of his Pancreas, the Duodenum, a small part of his stomach, than a re-section of his digestive system will be done.
Is there anyone on this board who had their Renal Cell metasisze to the Pancreas and /or had the Whipple Proceure?
