Totally agree that you should take your mom to see another surgeon. It is so discouraging to have the kind of interaction you all had with that Dr. but one man's opinion is just that...one man's opinion! Insurances almost always allow second opinions so seek out someone skilled at whipples and give your mom that advantage. Even if there's consensus that surgery's not an option, you'll move forward with confidence in your mom's tx. plan. There are some good options in Chicago from what I understand but you can also consult with J. Hopkins or MD Anderson. Best of luck and keep us informed. This Board is a terrific source of information and help.
