From what I read, CC does seem to have a high likelihood of recurrence even post-resection, contributing to its high morality and low survival rate. I think your next step is to look for targeted/immuno therapies that are effective against your specific tumor mutations.
Hi all, I’m about 1 and 1/2 years post Whipple surgery. I have been doing well until my last CT about 2 weeks ago. A small, “possible” recurrence was seen. Will do another CT in 3 months to confirm. Oncologist says not to worry, but I am anyway. I feel like this will be an ongoing occurrence for a few years then it will be unstoppable. I know this is not good mental state to be in. Any advice on how to stay positive? Or anyone else feeling this way who would be open to talking on the phone? Thanks
