    Just Diagnosed

    Oh No

    Just diagnosed with GIST in the head of the Pancreas. Dr recommends Whipple procedure and Imatinib. Part of my trouble making a decision for the surgery is that I have no symptoms and am not suffering in anyway. This recommended surgery and drug seems like a difficult life-changing decision.
