Topic: Need Some Questions Answered
Hi all. My 83 year old Aunt was diagnosed with this disease approximately 6 months ago. She lives out of town so information we are getting has been somewhat inaccurate. They were not able to do any treatment for her but had mentioned the Whipple Procedure but said she would not make it through the surgery. So basically she has had no treatment. She has lost a lot of weight (down to 78 lbs), has a large growth on her side and is really frail. This site has been very informative for me and has answered several questions. I was wondering, however, if anyone can tell me why or if it could be associated with this disease, does she have excessive itching and what could that possibly mean. Thanks in advance for any information.
