I would love to hear if anyone else has under gone a total pancreatectomy and or an islet cell transplant ?
I had mine in June 2005 - it took 12 hours of surgery and 3 subsequent operations to date.
Becoming diabetic was a forgone conclusion of the surgery obviously and NO I was not an alcoholic as most people ( including medical professionals ) seem to think. I was born with a rare pancreatatic abnormality, so chronic pancreatitus has been a constant problem from birth.
It would be good to know if any one else has had the same or similar please. Thanks Debbie
