I have to be absent from GOY for some time as I am having a Whipple procedure (which is removing duodenum with most of my pancreas and a bit of the stomach etc) for cancer next Tuesday only 20 hospitals in the UK do this op so I have to be a fair distance from home which is hard for the family.
I have a 75% chance of making the first 2 weeks postop. Having been a chemotherapy sister for many years I am quite ok with this as at 71 I feel lucky not to have got it earlier as so many do.
Hopefully I will be in touch in the future take care everyone
and best wishes Denise.

Hi Denise, I'm so sorry you will have to undergo such drastic surgery, and so far away from your family as well.
Wishing you all the very best, for a successful outcome, and a swift recovery, best wishes Derek.

Will be thinking of you on Tuesday and to you, your surgeon, carers and family every best wish from every guardian angel floating about out there. Keep a positive attitude, threaten the surgeon like I did with coming back to haunt him, if he didn't pull you through (mine op was very, very minor) and dream away until the Spring!

Wishing you all the best with your operation and hope that you make a good recovery. I have nothing but respect and admiration for all the teams that work in chemotherapy and oncology and as you will know from your own experience as a chemo sister, you make a very difficult time a lot more bearable. Once again all the very best.
