my guess is that many people are in advanced stages of life whe they have the surgery done, so it only makes since that they don't make it that long. On the other hand , I had my whipple last week and my surgical oncologist talked to me like I hav thirty years left. I think the reasoning is my age which is 38 I will say this b prepared because the whipple is a very manipulative surgery and I am currently still n hospital n Dallas. Hopefully can go home tomorrow, but if not that ok too. The surgeon did take several tumors when he preformed surgery now waiting for pathology to c if it truly is cancer since they couldn't do biopsy because of a pryor surgery. Good luck
