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
