Distal bile duct carcinomas, which are treated by whipple resection, are very
aggressive tumors. The whipple surgery will cure some patients with this
tumor, but the chances depend upon how large the tumor is, how many lymph
nodes were involved, if the tumor was completely excised, and other factors.
No matter what the status of the tumor, your friend will need close follow-up
in the future.
hope this helps
