Sorry to hear about your dad. I wish I had some words to ease your pain.
My story is that 5 years ago I went thru surgery for pancreatic cancer. They removed the tail and the spleen. I was lucky in that they determined it was pre malignant. I was one of the lucky ones.
Since that time I have had bouts of "bacterial overgrowth" from the surgery. I would be put on medication and things would temporarily clear up.
But more recently I was experiencing feelings and thought it was the bacterial overgrowth again. I would get bloated espcially after eating. Some abdominal pain. Very mild feelings of nausea. Saw the doctor and he noted some abdominal tenderness. I guess this was a sign of something else going on.
I have an MRI scheduled for next week to see if a new mass may have come back or if it's something new related to the pancreas or something else that I may have to be concerned about. Not sure what to think at this point and I am worried big time.
Again wish I can say something to ease your pain. I'm here if you need to vent. Take care for now.
