My Mom and Pancreas Cancer

My mom was recently diagnosed with pancreas cancer on the 24th of Feb. She turned 60 on March 9th. It took SOOO long to find out what was wrong with her. She just came home after a distal pancreatectomy yesterday. They took her spleen and some lymph nodes. No one mentioned any chemo at discharge so I am guessing they will discuss this with us at her followup on the 14th. I am her only child and her only support really. Bless her heart she hates feeling like a burden. She lives alone about 5 minutes away. To be honest, this is hard on me and my immediate family and I joined this discussion to find others to talk to about their experiences. We are all scared to death. Thanks for reading!

Great to see your mom had a successful  operation -They are probably waiting for the the pathology reports ,and will then send her to an oncoligist --it took  a long time to figure out what was wrong with my wife ,actually they missed it ,until her bile duct became clogged --she is about the same age as your mom and is 14 months post whipple surgury ...its great your family is  closeby to help her    Good luck And God Bless Tom
