Hi, I am new to the discussion board and hope I can find someone in same situation to lend some advice. Last September I had my pancreas removed due to renal cell cancer in pancreas no choice but to remove it. I have been dealing with the diabetes since then. (I am clean of all cancer at this time yeh!!)
I not only have to watch my carb, fats, red meats, no fried foods all these affect my stomach. I have lost forty pounds and seem to have a hard time trying to stop the weight loss, who would guess after thirty years of trying now it is just falling off. i weigh and measure most foods unless out to eat but I have gotten at good feel for portions size. I have more problems with low blood sugars right now than high. My sugars should be about 150-170 without pancreas. I have found out not many people have had a pancreas removed in our area so not much support. If anyone out there can give me some advice it would be much appreciated.
