This board is a great support system....there is always hope, please make sure that if your mom is a candidate for surgery you ask alot of questions and find a dr. that does lots of Whipples every year, and a facility that does lots of them every year.....the surgical survival rates really vary between hospitals from what I have been able to discover. I don't know how close you live to your mom, it has been helpful for my family for me to try to go on as many dr. appts and visits with them (my mom and dad) as I can, since neither of them has ever been sick before, and the whole prospect of hospitals, doctors, etc... is really overwhelming to them, in addition to trying to deal with the disease itself. Blessings to you. Lynne
