djk, our dad had bile duct cancer. Dad was able to have a whipple on 10-13-00. A whipple is a surgery where they removed the head of the pancreas, bile duct, gall bladder, and deudeum(sp). If your mom has no spread of the cancer she should be a candidate for the surgery. This surgery is no walk in the park its the worse surgery a person can have and recovery is slow. After the surgery your mom should have chemo and radiation. If I can help furthur just e-mail me, Lillie
