My mom was recently diagnosed. Last week, they attempted to do the whipple procedure. However, were unsuccessful due to the fact that the tumor was on 2 of the arteries. In approx 2 weeks, she will be starting chemo and radiation which will last approx 6 months to hopefully shrink the tumor so it will be operable. Any info would be greatly appreciated.
