Hi, My husband was diagnosed 10 wks ago with duodenal cancer which had spread to panceas. He had a whipples. He came out of the op ok but in recovery started to bleed they took him into surgery again. They couldnt stop the bleed & cam every close to lossing him. He had a third surgery the next day they stopped the bleed. three days later took him back to surgery to fix a bile leak. He was in hospital for 2 months. He was discharged last week we have a nurse who comes to our house. Im interest in other peoples storys bout the whipple surgery & the recovery. any info would be great.
