Hello @lenorahaston and welcome to Mayo Clinic Connect.
I'm glad that you are looking for support and have found this discussion group. Let me introduce myself, I have had three surgeries for NETs in the duodenum bulb without any metastasis yet. My NETs were found incidentally when the doctor was doing a routine upper endoscopy. I actually did not have any symptoms.
I would also like to invite you to the next NETs support group, which originates from Mayo's facility in Florida, but is a virtual meeting that is attended by NETs patients across the county. It is a great way to hear the journies of others who are dealing with NETs. The group is facilitated by Michelle Walsh, a Mayo Clinic Social worker. Before the speaker, there is a time for everyone to share their stories if they choose to. Here is information to register:

I look forward to getting to know you a bit better. Could you share, as you are comfortable doing so, a little about what led to your diagnosis? Have surgeries been suggested yet or just medication treatments?
