Topic: Cancer free

I've just received the best news possible.  Scan results show I'm cancer-free.  Also my surgeon is not recommending chemo now but he will monitor the situation every 6-months.  Its 10-months since my diagnosis, one failed whipple attempt followed by chemo, a successful whipple and numerous scans.

Your care and support over the past 10 months has been invaluable to me.

Fantastic news Gerry!  Did your surgeon get clear margins and no lymph nodes involved?  Time to celebrate!

Hope your whipple recovery is going well,
