Hello Everyone and gentle hugs
I posted in June that I had jaundice due to blocked and narrowing bile duct and ended up with ERCP done at Edinburgh Royal. Many CT scans and blood tests later the surgeons decided that the area beside the bile duct was suspicious. I have just had a Whipple procedure..which has removed half my stomach, duodenum, head and neck of my pancreas and replumbed everything in to a new people of small bowel.
6 weeks post op and doing not too bad with my 15 inch scar across my tummy but thankfully the pathology news was the area was non cancerous.
My Hepatobillary surgeons were shocked that my concerns of Gamma T bloods rising from Jan until June had not flagged up concern apart from my own. I was on Leflunomide for 1 year.
My RA clinic have not been in touch to ask how I am or if I have pain but since I have now reacted to ALL DMRDs I will not be allowed anything that affects my liver or damages it.
Has anyone else had a Whipple's as I have tried to search but no RA patients.
