    Before I was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer, I craved lemon peel. So I continue to eat it, even one year later, with a touch of salt added for taste. When I Googled lemon peel I read where it is loaded with vitamins and natural chemicals. Maybe my body knows something I don't?

      well, that's entirely possible! If you want to get the feedback from all of the community, repost this as a question so everyone can see it. Here, as an update you won't get that much feedback as the only ones who see your page are those who follow you.

    I am a 71 year old otherwise healthy woman withI Pancreatic Cancer and hope to be a candidate for the Whipple surgery sometime in October which will be approximately one year from diagnosis. I am here to tune into others experience with this aggressive cancer and, when possible, shine a light on my own. Trying to keep an optimistic frame of mind but admit that I am fearful of the Whipple surgery. I'm prepared to deal with the life altering after effects of this surgery, but ffind the operation itself sounds daunting given its length and challenge.

      If no one answers your Whipple question, I remember seeing people who have had that done. Try searching for them by clicking the People tab up top. Then where it says, "refine by diagnosis," on the left of that page, click the box next to pancreatic cancer. My dad was not a candidate for surgery because he is at stage IV. People have done well with the Whipple surgery, and with your stage 2, you have reason to be hopeful. Find someone who is well-experienced with that particular surgery. Good luck.
