You may want to post your question on the Pancreatic cancer discussion board as this procedure is generally done on pancreatic cancer patients.

You can also contact the American Cancer Society's National Cancer Information Center. Cancer Information Specialists are available 24 hours a day and have detailed information on the Whipple procedure. They can be reached at 1-800-227-2345.

Take care and be well,
