I would suggest against Whipple. Once you allow surgery in the organ area it can spread quicker and the cells may divide faster. Whipple also causes great hardship in absorbing any calories much needed. My friend did great until surgery then basically his disease accelerated and he could not recover.

Hello All. Just signed on here today after researching  severe gas and bloating 3 years post op. after PPPD.   I have reduced the frequency by taking Magnesium supplements but still get this crippling pain out of the blue that restricts breating and induces cold sweats. If anyone has similar or had similar would welcome some pointers. @klTubbs I was prescribed Creon after my pancreas was removed and have regained 15 KGS of good weight however its tablets for life.

My wife had surgery 4 years ago for a cancerous tumor on her pancreas. Surgery and anucleation was done to remove the tumor from the pancreas.  1 year later many small tumors were detected in her liver.  She has had Lanreatide treatements and y-90 spheres were administered to the liver. She developed intollerable pain as the spheres escaped and damaged (burned) her stomach and esophogus. Fentinol and Morphine  were administered for 7 months due to the extreme pain, during that 7 months a Helius Plexis was done to also relieve pain in the stomach. After 7 months she had to be weaned off of pain killers.  She now is in remission from cancer and Lanreatide keeps it in check. She now is suffering with Gastroparosis which is quite debillatating. (her type of cancer is Pancreatic Endocrin)   Can anyone share any info that may help  with this Gastroparesis situation as it relates to cancer and treatment? She is now a young 70.
