I had the procedure at Barnes in StL On Feb 22.Came home on 3-4-12. On 3-7 I had internal bleeding. On 3-8 they did endoscopy at Carle in Urbana, Il. & sealed 3 spots that were in my stomach
& small intestine. Came home on 3-21 all seems ok now. Thanks to all for their well wishes & prayers.
Since pancreatic cancer can be caused by smoking, if U are thinking about quitting, PLEASE DO!!!
U don't want to go thru what I did!!!!

Thanks to all for your interest in my problem. Back to Barnes tomorrow for post-op check-up. I plan to ask my doctor how long I
have to wait b4 I can get some seat time. If my yard gets any taller I may have to bale it. My surgery was on 2-22 so maybe some
seat time in about 2 weeks.
