Whipple proceedure


Recommended Posts

My husband had a whipple done in August.. He constantly complains of tightness and discomfort around his stomach (wound area) the doctors don't seem concerned and say its probably still healing.. He says it feels tight as if it's pulling or stretching.. Just wondering if anyone else has experienced this?.

Yes that tight pull my brother ref to daily after his whipple op. "Like a big weight lifters belt he was wearing"


In considering the type of operation and length of the op that scar will have many damaged nerve endings. I wish yr hubby a speedy recovery to try and put this concern to back of his mind.
