Hey Martha, gall bladder cancer, bile duct cancer and of course PC can all be treated with the whipple. That is if the cancer has not spread. During dads whipple(he had bile duct cancer) they removed the gall bladder, deudoumn, bile duct, and the head of the pancreas. I just happened to think if someone has deudoumn cancer they probably can get a whipple also. The cancer that strikes these areas is of the same type therefore the treatments are the same. Hugs Lillie
