in 2008 at the age of 66 I went through a Whipples and had part of my Pancreas removed.  Fortunately it was benign and have lifetime prescription for Creon 25000. On occasion I get a sensation in my stomach which eventually turns to nausea and I feel hot and cold at the same time. I also get sever tremors and cannot stop shaking. I have to take to my bed, often for two days. I have been given a standby prescription of Ciprofloxacin which I take when these attacks come on. I am not sure but I think the condition is called Cholangitis but am not sure. Has anyone else out there who has been through a Whipples experienced anything similar?

Hello Peter,


I am sorry to hear of your situation. I am sure not nice to have to go through this from time to time. 


Please feel free to be in touch with the specialist nurses on our confidential Support Line as they may be able to give you some guidance and support, certainly regarding cholangitis. A conversation by phone or email may help with some of this information.


The support line nurses are contactable on email: nurse@pancreaticcancer.org.uk or on the free call phone number 0808 801 0707.


Kind regards,



Pancreatic Cancer U
