update / diabetes 2

Hi I haven't been on in awhile but I just wanted to give you all an update on my mom.

My mom just finished her 1st cycle of chemo.  In two weeks she will begin a different chemo. it's called 5fu along with radiation.  The chemo is a 24hr. drip.  She will be on this regimen for 5 weeks.  When that is done she will do another cycle of chemo. (the same as what she just got done with.)

She is doing excellent!! Feels great and is very optimistic. The dr.s are optimistic too. They feel that they are taking precautionary measures. 

The one weird thing out of all this is that she was just diagnosed with Diabetes Stage 2.  They say that sometimes it's a temporary thing due to the chemo.  So I guess we'll see when it's all done.

Has anyone on here developed Diabetes after the Whipple Procedure?

(background..my mom had stage 2b tumor and had the whipple on Oct. 4th.)

I'm continually praying for all of you and I hope you do the same!  I pray this cancer never returns to my mom's body!!!

Take Care,

Mollie
