    Diagnosed

    Oh No

    I was waking up out of the Endoscopy, when my GI broke the news... I lifted my leg as high as I could and said, Cancer, cancer???!!??? Kick cancer in the butt!! I'm fighting this tooth and nail.

    Surgery

    Procedure or Surgery

    I had the Whipple, I was up the next day walking around and hungry as heck! I felt great until about 4 weeks later when I had the most excruciating pain knock me on my arse...I am not a pill popper so I try to just take it like a big girl, but, this does knock me for a loop as these attacks come and go when they please and are done by the time any pain killer sets in

    Went as Expected: Strongly Agree
    Minimal Recovery: Agree
    Minimal Side Effects: Disagree
    Minimal Impact to Daily Life: Disagree
