i had the whipple operation in april 2010 followed by further operation 1 week later. all the cancer was not removed. i then had pallative chemotheraphy for six months and a miracle occured, a scan showed the cancer had gone. i now have 6 monthly blood test, so far so good. I have ongoing issues but with the help of my wife,family and friends i move forward. not sure what else to say but this is a start.
