On 6/30/2006 Paulandsue wrote:My husband had the whipples procedure in 2003 due to a large tumour that had originated from the small bowel but attached itself to the pancreas along with dueodenum and gall bladder. it was Non Hodgkinsons Lymphoma so he was given 6 sessions of R-chop chemo and has been clear for 18 months. He is however still suffering a lot of pain usually after eating and it seems to progress as the day goes on. He is permanently bloated up and you can see the movement of wind in his stomach.
He too suffers from very smelly wind. He gets a lot of explosive diahorea wich is always fatty no matter how much they have upped his creon (40,000) He now takes about 25 a day. For the last 12 month he has also been Jaundice but everyone seems lost as to why. He has had various scans and blood test which have eliminated the cancer as the cause but no one can say what is causing it.
If anyone has experienced Jaundice I would be very gratefull if they could let me know.
