Marvin, thanks for the comeback! Formerly, my husband was a big carb/sugar eater, so he is having difficulty losing his desire for those sometimes
difficult to resist foods. He takes 3 Creon caps with meals and two with snacks. He’s hooked on Sweet tea, since his medical team is in the South.
Weight is no longer a problem since he’s lost 30 pounds and is having trouble keeping his weight up! I’m so pleased to know that you had your
Whipple in 2014 and your still able to respond to me in my caretaker role!

Dakota, meant “hang in there”, not” hand”. Just a slip of the finger!

Thanks Dakota, good to know we’re not alone! This is a tough and lonely road with Pancreatic Cancer. Especially since I have stage 4 breast cancer
and I’m now my husband’s caretaker . We’ve switched roles! Hand in there!

My husband celebrated his one year Whipple surgery in February. He had a “rarest of rare tumors”, no spread, but no available prognosis since
follow up treatment is unknown for his bizarre tumor cells. He is now taking Creon enzymes to help with pain after eating, but he still suffers from unexpected diarrhea occasionally. Very disconcerting when you are driving or in a social situation. Do you or others have the same problem?

Mon, Feb 18 10:39pm · Video Q&A about Statins in Heart & Blood Health

I’ve had high numbers since I was young. Tried changing my diet, no luck. My Dr. put me on a low dose statin, and my numbers dropped
like a stone. Now my LDL and HDL are great! Moo1
