ampullary cancer

I was diagnosed with Ampullary cancer in Jun 2009. Was suppose to have the whipple procedure but was unable to complete the surgery due to the fact that the cancer had spread into the lymph nodes. I have been on chemo treatment since Aug 2009 it is called the GTX protocol and I have been doing very well. Has anyone else had this happen where they could not have the full procedure. I am told I cannot have the rest of the surgery and that I will be kept on the chemo treatment as long as it keeps working. I have been on the treatment almost 1 year. Any info would be helpful. Thank you.
