Re: pancreatic cancer

That is not an easy question to answer as every case is different. I had Stage two Pancreatic Cancer 7 1/2 years ago and I am still here. I had the Whipple Procedure and have been so blessed by God to be Cancer Free. With Stage two your chances are much better than Stage four. I was 68 years old and will soon be 76.

The Whipple Procedure is not easy and the effects will be with you the rest of your life but you will not hear any complaints from me.

My prayers are with your sister.
