            If I may intrude, what type of cancer was addressed in the Whipple: adenocarcinoma or neuroendocrine tumor or other?  I had a neuroendocrine tumor removed from my pancreas but it also spread to my liver.  My treatment has been lanreotide injections monthly with a good deal of success but this treatment only pertains to neuroendocrine tumors.  Hope to hear back and hang in there.

              Often Whipple patients are prescribed enzyme tablets (made from pig enzymes I understand) to help in the digestive process as the pancreas is no longer producing enough enzymes to properly digest food.  Other food that helps relates to yogurt of any type.  Experiment with plain white bread and peanut butter as this is discussed as tolerable food when digestion and diarhrrea are problems.  Stability in ...

                First, not all cancers are identical so suggusted treatments are only that: suggestions and personal experiences.  A current and effective treatment and mostly benign as far as cancer treatment can be Lanreotide monthly injections to contain neuroendocrine tumors that have spread to other organs.  Other factors of course will determine the effectiveness and applicability but for me and many others where the...

                  this forum is not a place for pushing religioius beliefs so those who do this attempt to be respectful and keep your religion to yourself.  this is a medically based message board and pursues science for addressing cancer and not hopes and prayers and pushing superstitioius beliefs that some god is out there to cure us.  folks, believe in science for your remedy and if you have a religion use it for peace o...
