Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (2 weeks ago):

  • My husband Brian developed Pancreatic Cancer after being on Pradaxa for two years for Atrial Fibrillation.
    He had to have the classic Whipple surgery to remove most of his pancreas, all of his gall bladder, duodenum and the pyloric valve of his stomach. He now faces weeks of chemotherapy.
