Sounds like you have had a whirlwind, mind numbing couple of weeks! Sorry you find yourself here, but the more you know about this disease the better it is. If you are going to have a Whipple that means they caught it early enough and that is a good sign. Sounds like your surgeon is on the ball wanting to get it done. From my husbands diagnosis to surg was 3 wks. It's a tough surgery, but you are a young healthy guy so that is in your favor too! Up above in blue are some good questions, what to ask your Dr. etc. You will be learning a lot of new terminology so take a notebook to each appt. and hospital and mark down what your questions are and Dr.'s answers. That way you won't forget and your family can know what's going on and can put down their questions. That was real helpful for us. There is another good site, it is called 'Whipple Warriors' It is more active than this one and it is a private one. Good luck and prayers!
