My heart goes out to you all. We learned the hard way that the final staging before a Whipple does not always show everything. CT was fine, CA9-19 fine, laparoscope exam fine. After they opened, one last careful exam found a lesion in the liver, 'tucked away', way too small to be seen on CT. They did a wedge resection and got the whole thing according to the path report. So we had the laparotomy to recover from, but no Whipple. I'm glad we had a careful surgeon who found the lesion. Sucky, (and tricky) disease.
