Anyone in the Orlando, Florida area?

Interested in more discussions like this? Go to the Neuroendocrine Tumors (NETs) Support Group.

Hello @isaiah5417nt and welcome to Mayo Clinic Connect. After reading some of your posts, it appears that you have a NET in your stomach. Is this correct?

As a 20 year survivor of NETs, and having had three surgeries, I understand you wanting to connect with others who have a similar diagnosis. Have you had any surgery or other treatments for your NETs?

I look forward to hearing from you and connecting you with others. As you are comfortable doing so, will you post again with some more details?

Hello @isaiah5417nt

All three of my NETs were in the duodenal bulb. Two surgeries involved re-sectioning the duodenal bulb and the third surgery was done by an endoscopic procedure.

As you probably know, it is important to consult with a NETs specialist. At each of the Mayo Clinic campuses (Rochester, MN, Jacksonville, FL and Phoenix, AZ) there are NET specialists. If you would like a consultation, either in-person or virtually, here is a link that will give you appointment information, http://mayocl.in/1mtmR63.

If for any reason, you cannot be seen at a Mayo facility, here is another list of specialists worldwide,

Has surgery been recommended?
