I was diagnosed with a pacreatic mass on the 24th of January 2008. I am blessed to be in the age of information. pan CAN and MedHelp are very helpful. I do not sit around and obsess for more information but I do hunger for accurate information. That is why I am writing this on line journal. I want anyone who is in a similar situation to be able to give, get and trade ideas on who,what, when where and how this health crisis is being written.
I have HCV. I went through a 6 monthe alfa-interferon treatment in 1998. My enzymes have never been remarkable. HCV lay undetected since treatment until January 29th. I have strong faith, I exercise, eat well, I am happy and healthy. How could this be happenig I thought when diagnosed with a pancreatic mass. It is happening though and I need to share my journey because it may help me or you.
I will see a GI oncologist at UT Knoxville medical center on Monday,February 4,2008. I will keep us informed on the further evalution and treatment plan. If anyone has any suggestions or prayers I am open.
