    Pancreatic Cancer - a tough cancer to diagnose and to treat!

    in Health

    Dr. Jagannath, Institute for Cancer Care at Mercy Medical Center will join Anna's Journey to discuss


    Pancreatic Cancer as this topic hits the airways due to actor Sir John Hurt's (actor) recent announcement about his diagnosis of this cancer.


     


    Sir John Hurt, the veteran actor, has been diagnosed with cancer but will keep working and says he is "more than optimistic" about his future.


    The star, 75, has enjoyed a successful career with notable roles including Quentin Crisp in The Naked Civil Servant, the title role in The Elephant Man and a recurring role in the Harry Potter films.


    In a statement released on Tuesday afternoon, he said: "I have always been open about the way in which I conduct my life and in that spirit I would like to make a statement.


    "I have recently been diagnosed with early stage pancreatic cancer. I am undergoing treatment and am more than optimistic about a satisfactory outcome, as indeed is the medical team.


    "I am continuing to focus on my professional commitments and will shortly be recording Jeffrey Bernard Is Unwell (one of life's small ironies!) for BBC Radio 4."

    Surviving 2 Bouts of Pancreatic Cancer pt 2 with Dr. Steven Lewis

    in Health

    Dr. Steven Lewis received a Ph.D. in exercise physiology from Stanford University in 1977 and is a visiting professor of clinical biomedical science in the Charles E. Schmidt College of Medicine at Florida Atlantic University in Boca Raton. His book is called "The Ripple Effect: How a Positive Attitude and Caring Community Helped Save My Life."


     He was in superb life-long health, until he was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer, a disease with a survival rate of only 5%. In spite of this, Steven and his wife struggled to achieve and deliberately maintain an extremely positive attitude. This choice started a "ripple effect" that created an exceptionally caring and upbeat community of family, relatives and friends and enabled this community to return even more positive energy to Steven. The story became even more intense when Steven endured a second bout of pancreatic cancer that metastasized to his liver. Surviving a second bout of pancreatic cancer is so rare that no statistics are kept. Today, Steven is cancer free, in excellent health and works out strenuously.

    Nutrition Advice for Pancreatic Cancer and the aftermath of Whipple Surgery

    in Health

    Today we would like to welcome Maria Petzel, a Clinical Dietitian with the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center. Today we will be discussing Nutrition after Whipple Surgery and nutrition for those with Pancreatitis and Pancreatic Cancer. As many of us know, November is Pancreatic Cancer Awareness month.

    According to the Hirshberg Foundation for Pancreatic Cancer Research, Pancreatic cancer has the highest mortality rate of all major cancers.  Only 6% of patients diagnosed with pancreatic cancer will survive more than five years. One theory that pancreatic cancer has a low survival rate, is because the symptoms may not be apparent until the cancer has already spread significantly.


    One method of treatment is Whipple surgery, named after the first surgeon to perform the procedure, Allen Whipple. Whipple surgery consist of removing a significant portion of the pancreas next to the small intestines It also involves removal of the duodenum, a portion of the common bile duct, gallbladder, and sometimes part of the stomach. Afterwards, surgeons reconnect the remaining intestine, bile duct, and pancreas.


    This is obviously a very intense surgery for a person to undergo, especially when recovering. It is critical for a person to consult with either a registered Dietitian or Doctor both before & after a surgical procedure.
