I had a TOTAL PANCREATECTOMY the 5th of November.  I would love to chat with others that might have rec'd this surgery !!!!!!! I have been told that i am doing great but for some reason i don't feel like it. I've also been told that i will not complete recoverary for 6 months. So if you have gone through this yorself or should know someone, please let me know how you managed this live changing procedure.

Hi. My husband had his pancreas removed at Stanford in the fall of 2006. The cause was necrotizing pancreatitis.  We would be happy to chat with you.  My email is ***@****. Please write. There are many issues we could discuss. Sincerely, Geeta

Hi! I am almost 40 yrs old. I've had chronic pancreatitis all my life and am considering a Total Pancreatectomy soon. I'd love to talk to someone who's gone through this procedure and is living life well after that. Thanks!
