Carole, experience of the effect of pancreatic cancer on diet

Posted by: Carole 1 September 2014

Carole was diagnosed with operable adenocarcinoma. She shares her experience of the effect of pancreatic cancer on diet. 

I still find that I cannot eat large meals, yet there are times when I do not feel full and am tempted to keep eating but quite quickly go on to develop real discomfort, stomach ache and nausea.  I am having to learn to try to restrain myself and stop eating before getting full, have a break and then 'top up' again with a snack a little later.  Little and often still seems the best rule despite being 18 months post Whipple.

I have always found sucking sweets really good for coping with the nausea (or a good excuse!).
