    Had Whipple

    Had the whipple done in 2008. For stage 3 pancreatic cancer. Removed part of stomach and pancrease.  Also removed gallbladder, 17 lymphnodes and close to 2 ft. of small intestine.  Best my memory recalls.

    Noticed you had posted on another thread also on this site.   I had bumped "whipple" threads to the top under "Rare and Other Cancers" a while back but, over time they go to the bottom or next pages if not posted on often.   Just scroll down a bit while under "Rare and Other Cancers" there are more posts listed as Whipple.  I will try to BUMP a few back to the top for you.

    Hope that helps
