    Side Effects (Jaundice): I'm not loving this one at all. I'm ORANGE!!!! I know that its caused by a blockage that needs to be opened, I'm just hating it.

      Jaundice is no fun. Are you scheduled to have a stent put in?

      Basic black yoga pants ad athletic wear can go a long way because of the stretch. Easy to dress up with a scarf And hat. Also, Thredup.com is an Amazon company recycling clothing. I had good experiences with them and they do carry xs as well as children's and take returns on most items. I'm 97 lbs and have been able to find clothing in juniors and children's section.

      My husband is a devotee of Uncle Sal's! He also has a knack for finding all the 90% off stuff at Kohl's. He looks and feels better in clothes that fit.

      i have decided that this is the best time to wear what i am comfortable in, and say hey i have cancer, so i have an excuse to go to the corner store in pjs and slippers and a coat if i feel like ti.
      all kidding aside, i have purchases yoga pants and leggings, and have paired them with basic tshirts and layered with long flannel type shirts that i can tie around my waist if i get hot and to help hide the thinness if i need to i have added long sweaters, and have added a scarf around to accessories if you purchase a couple of really large scarfs the ones that act as a shoulder wrap, you can use as a shoulder wrap, and a scarf and as a belt if needed and use to hide or add to your waist line

    Procedure or Surgery (ERCP): Two weeks ago today, I learned I have a pancreatic head *mass*.

    I have an ERCP/EU/FNA scheduled this Friday, Oct 23rd. I'll update after.
    UPdate = Mass is small, they brought in someone from Pathology to ensure they had adequate samples.

    Doctor was honest and sympathetic. He believes I'm a candidate for a Whipple Procedure, and wants to get me scheduled in a week or so.
