Animation - Helping Kids and Teens to Understand and Prepare for Pancreatic Surgery
This animation will help you to understand and prepare for pancreatic surgery. It describes what to expect before, during and after surgery. Pancreatic surgery can involve doctors removing a part or all of your pancreas from your body. It will take time to get better after your surgery, but having pancreatic surgery can help you begin to feel better sooner and go back to enjoying everyday activities.
