I was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in August of 2000. I underwent the whipple procedure at Columbian Presbyterian Hospital in New York. I recovered from the surgery, but it has changed my life significantly. I experience delayed gastric emptying on a daily basis, and I have to eat small meals throughout the day. I have experienced dumping symptoms which are very painful and nauseating. I have to constantly monitor my diet and I cannot have anything that is too high in carbohydrates. I have now been experiencing frequent sweating, warmth and dizziness issues when I eat. Has anyone else experienced this syndrome? I am going to my doctor for tests, but I have to say that this causes me to feel unwell frequently. I have a great amount of compassion and understanding for anyone who has gone through this life changing surgery.
