    Thanks. Whipple was only a debulking exercise for me since the tumor was too close to (or touching) the Portal vein - they told me in advance that such an outcome was distinctly possible based on imaging. My tumors are responsive to lanreotide injections, so they are mostly static in size. I've been very fortunate since the Whipple recovery in terms of the course this disease has taken.

    That said, I'm jacked up on hydromorphone this morning thanks to radiating abdominal pain I get once every month or two, so likely costing me a visit with my daughter today.

    If you know of Eric Liu formerly from Vandy, he's one of my doctors for this. Figured you may know of him if you're Arkansas-based and deal with NETs.

    Most of my NET experience is from training since the med center here seems to get that patient population but I do a lot of procedures for different forms of liver cancer, primary and metastatic. Also do a lot of biliary work especially post Whipple

    Radiology is stretched super thin nationwide right now. Group meeting tonight was not fun.
