MY HUSBAND RECENTLY HAD A CAT SCAN BECAUSE HE HAD ULCER LIKE PAINS IN HIS STOMACH AND HIS UPPER BACK FELT LIKE SOMETHING WAS PULLING/PAIN ETC.
THE SCAN CAME UP WITH A PANCREAS TUMOR ON THE HEAD OF THE PANCREAS. WE HAVE AN APP'T WITH A VERY GOOD DR AT SLOAN KETTERING, NYC ON TUES. THE WAITING IS KILLING US. OTHER THAN THE BACK PAIN AND STOMACHE DISCOMFORT, MY HUSBAND FEELS FINE. HIS BOWELS ARE GOOD, GOOD APPETITE, NO JAUNDICE.... THE GASTROENTEROLIGST WE WENT TO THIS WEEK RECOMMENDED TO GO TO SLOAN BECAUSE HE FEELS EVEN IF IT IS NOT CANCER, IT IS A SERIOUS OPERATION AND THEY ARE VERY FAMILIAR WITH THE WHIPPLE PROCEDURE. AFTER READING UP ON PANCREAS CANCER SYMTOMS IT APPEARS MY HUSBAND WOULD HAVE MORE SYMPTOMS IF IT WAS CANCER. CAN ANYONE TELL ME THERE EXPERIENCE WITH THERE INTIAL SYMPTOMS OF PANCREATIC CANCER. THE DR'S ARE VERY SURPRISED HE IS NOT JAUNDICE DUE TO THE TUMOR(RUBBER BALL SIZE) AT THE HEAD OF THE PANCREAS. ANY THOUGHTS ON THIS WILL BE GREATLY APPRECIATED.
