Can you tell me a little more about your husband's original diagnosis? My aunt has end stage bile duct cancer. They're not sure if it's in her pancreas. She's been referred (by Yale) as a surgical candidate for the Whipple. Waiting to see if surgeon accepts recommendation.

What was recovery like, and what type of treatment after (and how bad were the effects?)
