Anyone out there have PNET experiences and outcomes to share?
Hello everyone, I am 44 y/o male. About 6 weeks ago I went into the ER for abdominal pain. My initial thought was pancreatitis because I had it exactly 1 year ago when I went in 6 weeks ago. During a CT scan a mass was discovered on tail of my pancreas. Fast forward 4 weeks later, biopsy was done and confirmed as PNET. Saw a surgeon about a week ago and she want to do a distal pancreatectomy and splenectomy. CT with contrast doesn’t show any spread, however waiting on doing a PET scan in 2 weeks to make sure. Also waiting for 3 vaccines to kick in during the 2 week waiting period. I’ve been petrified since learning of this disease. When I first found out I turned pale and almost had to vomit. Anyone out there who has had similar PNET and outcomes? Survival rate etc. greatly appreciate it.
