As a ten year survivor I don't have many problems so I just "lurk" in the back ground and when someone comes in with a question I can answer; I answer. I think I have beaten this monster and my life is mostly the same as it was before it changed my life forever. It was a tough battle no question but there are some things on the positive side; like me being able to eat anything iI want, my weight being stable at about 150 lbs and my visits to the doctor consists of twice a year check ups with my GP. I used to have a weight problem,now instead of my belly hanging over my belt buckle it's flat and my cholesterol problem is all in my past. Whipple was a tough answer to a tough problem but with a positive attitude It is doable. That's my message. . . Oh yeah; I'll be 82 next June. . . Chris. .
Chris - It's wonderful to hear you've done so well with this cancer. I pray you will continue to do well. Please pray for my mother to have a fighting chance as hers is inoperable. All the best to you.
