I went to visit with the Oncologist yesterday and he advised me that he wants to do a surgery called a “Whipple” where they will be taking out the part of me where the Tumor is as well as 1/3 of my Pancreas.
The surgery is scheduled for July 21st and I will be in the hospital (Intermountain Medical Center 5400 S 700 W)for one week and then home recovering for four weeks.
He also advised that I should not need Radiation or Chemo after the surgery. I will just need to do regular check-ups and that I should be able to live a long healthy life.
Thank you all for your support as our “Fighting Hearts” battle through this.
