Fri, Sep 27 9:13am · Pancreatic cancer—Whipple procedure in Cancer

Thanks!! I struggled many years to be thin or thinner than I was….finally now after my surgery and recovery from pancreatic cancer I'm at my ideal weight. I do suffer from gas bloating and bathroom issues after eating…..whether small or normal portions!! My oncologist gave me a prescription for an alternative to the Creon. I will try it!! Thanks again!!

Thank you for your response! I had my pancreatic surgery done in Jan of this year in Fort Myers, Fl General Hospital by Dr. BLOOMSTON. He is great…got all the fingers of my cancer splosh out. Both he and the oncologist were amazed that it was gone. I moved back to RI and have been seeing recommended surgeon and his oncologist at major Clinic here in RI. I just had a ct sczn and because it shows scarring at surgery area they want me to do a pet
Scan for further investigation. I'm Leary since I know insurance only covers so many pet scans and ct scans per person. What is your advice on this?

No, I just didn't know where to post my dilemma and the post I replied also talked about routine check up appt after surgery happened.

I just started my routine oncologist checks in a different state than my treatment and surgery. My first scan here indicated scarring from the surgery. The oncologist wants me to have a pet scan to further investigate the scarred area ….is this necessary?? What happens if I really need a pet scan further down the road…..I cannot afford the cost of this test on my income!
