    Oh, this is good, Lynn, thanks so much for the answers. There is nothing worse then a stubborn stitch. I will be looking forward to the test results! Like my Teddy used to say, “Now we know what we have to do, let’s get on with it!.

    Hello Lainy,and thank you for the welcome,i am very grateful for this site and all its members,My husband is being seen by a Dr,who specializes in this type of cancer from Lakeland regional cancer center,he is a wonderful and experienced dr who has performed many whipple surgerys.We will see what the 19th brings when he sees Dr molina again.He goes for a catscan on the 10th.Yesterday,he went to the surgon who performed his gull bladder surgery because of pain in the corner of his incission,turned out to be a disolveable stitch that didnt desolve and it was poking him,my husband did ask some questions about the cancer,and if he ever done the whipple,turns out he has done quite a few to.Well i need to fix some lunch,and try to get him to eat ..again thank you.

    Dear Lynn, welcome to our extraordinary family but sorry you had to find us. I am very sorry to hear about your husband. The site of his CC is almost exactly where my husband had his. Teddy’s was contained in his bile duct valve where it connected to the head of the Pancreas. Teddy also had the Whipple. I know you feel like you have been hit in the stomach with a baseball bat but strength is what will get you through. Where is your husband being treated? You want to make sure he is seen at a Major Hospital/Cancer Center where they have a lot of knowledge about CC and also in performing the Whipple. Knowledge is our most powerful weapon. One week Teddy had his tests and the next his Whipple. Are they giving him anything for pain? That is the first priority! Unbelievable but you are the 3rd newbie today from Florida! I know others will be along to welcome you and give some added advise. IF at any time you are not comfortable with what is being done we always recommend 2nd and 3rd opinions. You never know how strong you are until “strong” is the only choice you have! You are not alone, we are all right with you.
