Dear all,

I know this is a super rare cancer but i'm eager to know for anyone's recent experience in dealing with Duodenal Cancer after Whipple Surgery. My dad, 73 was diagnosed of Stage 3 Duodenal Cancer in May 2021. He completed Whipple and 12 rounds of FOLFOX chemo, CA 19.9 recently marks at 27, and with recurrence this June at Pre-aortic lymph node. He had surgery right away to remove the this newly found tumour and recovering. Can't believe recurrence would occur in just 6 months post Chemo. I wonder what we should do next? Doc did not suggest further chemo as he is too old, advised we should actively monitor his developments.

I really want to know what could happen next? any chance of surviving through it for more than 2 years?

Appreciate for any thoughts, thank you .
