My Husband had the whipple surgery done, along with removing his entire pancreas and appendix, and speen, and part of his stomach, the cancer was in the head of the pancreas, and was in some of his vessels around the outside of his pancreas, he is doing very well just got out the NG tube out of his nose lastnight, and today they are starting him on liquids. 4-6 weeks after he has healed some from this big surgery, he will be going though chemo, and radiation praying that he does well with this. I wish every one that is going though this type of cancer does as well as my husband is doing I will be saying prayers for each and everyone of you. May God heal you all and be by your sides though out all this. Take Care.. xoxoxo WiscWife.
