In Spring 2019 I was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer (膵臓がん). In July I underwent major surgery, a pancreaticoduodenectomy – Whipple procedure (膵頭十二指腸切除術) to remove my duodenum and gall bladder, 50% of my pancreas, and 20% of my stomach. In January, 2020, a CT scan revealed cancer in my liver, and I began chemotherapy with FOLFIRINOX. These pages document the highlights of my experiences with this lethal form of cancer.
