    Please stop the god and prayer thing, that is not what saved you, science did, this type of talk puts people's lives in jeopardy as they may rely on superstition and hope and prayers when science can cure or greatly extend their life, please stop this in this thinking and science based forum and save your stuff for a Church service

      there is no evidence of diet resolving, killing or inhibiting growth of PC, NONE.  just ask Steve Jobs who would be alive today had he pursued surgery and medical treatment earlier instead of odd treatment hopes.  Stage 1, tell him he is lucky to catch PC early and not push his luck as moving from Stage 1 to Stage 4 can happen quickly.  Diet and cancer cures are pseudo-science.  Also, the chemo fo...

        I would seek out a second opinion, get a scan, as someone mentioned it could be a problem with the surgery.  i never experienced any pain, credit that to the surgeon, luck and maybe i just healed well.  also could be severe gerd? do seek out another opinion as your surgeon will never admit fault

          glad to hear your successful Whipple story.  i can also lay claim to your experience and recovery and be thankful things are going fine.  too often folks have bad experiences and related injuries and long lasting pain but that may, i say MAY, mostly have to do with the surgeon.  what type of cancer did they find, did it begin in the pancreas and spread as mine did, what treatment are you on (i am takin...

            Let me speculate on the cause of pain and agree with another person who responded.  Gas build-up can cause pain, at times crippling pain.  I tried to, with some success, to mitigate gas build-up and pain via diet (cheese, garden greens, beans of course, wheat bread, dairy, etc.).  I've found white bread, peanut butter, tea, eggs have mixed results but leave out the butter/oil when pan frying.  I a...

              glad to hear your story of success but let me ask you to summarize the message i think you are trying to convey:  stress from the job and cancer was the root of the pain problem and as the cancer stablized and you quit the job relief was on the way?

                First, there are so to speak varieties of pancreatic cancer.  Some are less aggressive than others, some more treatable than others, and above all science has progressed greatly to treat many different types.  I had Stage 4 pancreatic cancer, diagnosed in Dec 2016, had a Whipple, to date cancer has been contained.  I was fortunate in that I had neuroendocrine PC, very treatable with lanreotide monthly ...

                  Interesting side affect of Whipple, I've not heard of back ache from a Whipple and seems as though posts to your inquiry imply it is not so much the surgical Whipple but procedures associated with Whipple, maybe nerve damage?  What are you taking for the pain, I hope you are receiving effective treatment and you may want to try morphine (it comes in liquid form and pill).  Your situation, as you know, shoul...

                    I can't offer much as my Whipple went well.  If the vomitting is from nausea he might try Phenegran or Zofran, used for chemo nausea and works for most.  Is he on enzyme tablets that most take after the Whipple?  I'm 2 years out from the Whipple and still get ocassional diarrhea but mostly caused by my diet when I eat cheese and dairy product (excluding yogurt), i eat a lot of peanut butter and plain w...

                      Why are you pursuing nanoknife,n surgery, etc vs something like lanreotide at this point, has the cancer in liver spread or can't be contained with injections like lanreotide????
