Gerry….great news all around. Enjoy the world cup; the most watched event in the world. As Kris has mentioned, the timing for recuperation was perfect.
I am crossing my fingers for terrific results with the scan.

Glad to hear that you are home and that it went well, great stuff indeed! And I hope that you make an excellent speedy recovery. Plenty of time for you to relax and take it easy in front of the TV and watch the 3 games a day from the world cup!! Still think you guys were badly robbed, France should never have got there! Great timing for you to get home though!
My best wishes to you,

I had been wondering about you too, and I’m SO glad to hear about the good outcome!
Did you schedule your surgery to have time off for the World Cup?!?! Brilliant idea!
Wishing you a smooth recovery–

Hi Gerry and that is the most wonderful news!!! Been wondering how you were doing. What is that test you have to take? Never heard of it before.
Enjoy your recuperation and we will celebrate when that tube is removed. YEA! Love the good news!June 11, 2010 at 7:59 pm #37887hollandgMember
Thanks for all your kind comments – they worked well. The operation was successful and this time they removed the tumour. I spent 3-weeks in hospital, one week longer than expected due to a complication, caused by a leak from the pancreas (along the cut-line). I have a drain fitted now (to drain off the pancreatic juices) but I hope to have this removed after a few weeks. The next course of treatment will be determined following an octreotide scan, which I expect to complete in the next few weeks.
In the meantime I’m happy to be home recovering while watching the world cup (even though Ireland did’nt make it to the finals).

I wish you the very best of luck with your surgery (well, now, since it was today…I hope it went well) and, what’s more important, a very speedy recovery. We’ll keep our fingers crossed for you…May 13, 2010 at 4:01 pm #37885lalupesParticipant

Gerry – My thoughts and prayers will be with you on Whipple Day.May 12, 2010 at 12:42 pm #37882lainyParticipant
OK to everyone….here is your laugh for the day day from my Senior Moment!
Above or below I posted, ” Remember the ad for toilet paper when they would say, “don’t squeeze the Whipple?” It should have said “Don’t squeeze the Charmin, Mr. Whipple!” OK so now you can all have a good laugh on me and perhaps Gerry can give a smile before he goes in tomorrow. Again, good LUCK!May 12, 2010 at 9:30 am #37881hollandgMember
Thanks for the positive thoughts and advice….I’ll post again in a few weeks time to let you know how things went.
Kris……enjoy Greece and spend a few euro when your there….they need it.

Thinking of you Gerry. Remember don’t be a hero, get those painkillers on board. And it’s really important to get upright (use the patient controlled painkillers when you see the physio approaching).
Looking forward hearing positive news.May 11, 2010 at 9:27 am #37879magicParticipant
