Dec 11, 2019 · Diagnosis today and feel paralyzed but need to be there for my hubby.. in Pancreatic Cancer

Thank you I felt hope when I read the first line of your first message to me saying you were diagnosed 5 1/2 years ago so thank you and I am waiting to see at the beginning of the year what our doctor decides is best. He said chemo is probably going to be required. Did you have IV chemo or pill?

Dec 9, 2019 · Pancreatic Cancer Group: Introduce yourself and connect with others in Pancreatic Cancer

Hello, I am a caregiver for my husband
Who has been recently diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. The surgeon has said he feels this is completely removable doesn’t think a Whipple is required and said it is about a 2 cm tumour. My husband is experiencing greasy orange stool which I know I have read on here others have had. I want him to go to family dr tomorrow and get pancreatic enzymes. I got some for him from health food store but they don’t seem to be helping much with gas and diarrhea. I’d love to hear from others who have been diagnosed, are caregivers or have had any surgery for this cancer.

Hello sorry to hear that you are experiencing a these symptoms that are probably very scary. I don’t have much to offer other than to say don’t jump
to too many conclusions. I know that’s difficult but honestly I just went through 2 months of pure torture with my husband and he had a serious condition
but it is completely treatable so I am thankful for that. There are many kind, knowledgeable and caring people on here that will reach out to you. Try to wait to see what test results say before you let panic take over.
Take care and breathe….
Everything passes remember that

Thank you so much for taking the time to reply to me. Still in very early stages of knowing what will happen but things are sounding somewhat positive. The surgeon said it looks completely resectable so hopefully he’s right but he’s an excellent surgeon so I am having faith. Your story is inspirational so thank you. He does qualify for Whipple but new doctor is not sure yet if he has to go that route. Again thank you.
I might be in touch again if that’s ok

Repeat CT scan and colonoscopy Husband had colonoscopy a few years ago so dr is not overly concerned with this but would address it during surgery. So far surgery to remove the affected area in the bile duct near small intestine.
