My Grandfather is having a Whipple Surgery today to remove a cancerous tumor that is in the bile duct. I have learned that it looks like it has not spread. I was wondering what the standard treatment is after this kind of cancer and if chemotherapy or radiation is normaly a common thing after this procedure? Any information will be greatly appreciated. He is 79 years old and in pretty good health but he was diagnosed since he was jaundice and nauseated since was not able to eat for a few weeks before hand. I understand that the tumor was blocking the bile duct so that the bile was not able to be released into the intestines. Thank-you
