Kay-Kayes explains what going through the Whipple procedure was like.
The Whipple procedure is where they go in and they re-plumb your digestive system. I have been told that it's the second hardest surgery on your body besides open-heart surgery. It took me a month for my body to start to adjust to it. I would carry a dish pan for a month around because the surgery that they had to do and the re-plumbing, everything was swollen, so nothing could stay down.
So I carried this dish pan around, and the best thing I heard from my surgeon was "In a month, you’ll be eating steak." And so you keep looking for that light as a cancer patient. You need a goal to go towards.
