Hi Teresa been a while hope you are well. Central is an uncommon pancreatic resection that only removes the body of the pancreas . It’s not common due the effort taken to reconstruct the tail of the pancreas and somehow stitch the whole thing together . It gives patients a better long term prognosis but surgeons don’t like it due to the extra risks with the reconstruction. Some surgeons call it the middle resection

I appreciate the explanation, @mariouk. From what I understand your next procedure will be in September and it will be a EUS/FNA.

Did this recent follow-up include an MRI and blood work?
