my husband received chemo prior to his whipple surgery along with targeted radiation to where they were going to operate and then he received chemo again after surgery.  He did very well.

Mavish,

            I had chemo and target rads before and more chemo after the whipple also. That was in 2008.  The chemo was heavy doses of Gemzar. Both before and after.
