Great News to anyone who wants to know!! My Grandmother was to have a whipple on a 2 cm. tumor on Tuesday. She had had 2 biopsies that were both negative--but the docs were convinced she had cancer, I am sure you all know why. Had scheduled whipple but was not sure if he would be able to do it--did say if it had spread that it may not be possible. Prayers were answered! He took off 2 inches of her stomach and bypassed to her lower intestines--and also bypassed liver. He removed stent that had been placed to open bile duct. He as also very kind--and spent nearly an hour with our family explaining the procedure--and was truly amazed that it was not cancerous. His name was Dr. Charles Lucas--he works out of Harper Hospital at Detroit Medical Center. He drew pictures and made sure all questions were answered! My Gram looks great--she was up the next morning--and he says she should be able to go home in 10 days. Her surgery was still extensive--but not nearly as a whipple would have been. He will monitor with CT scan. God is Good! Thanks to all who wrote with their concerns--you have my eternal gratitude for your thoughts and prayers. Helene
