is to use the search feature at the bottom of the screen (right side) - where you can retrieve all past posts - there will be a ton of stuff about vein involvement - some surgeons are indeed able to work wonders with veins - taking them from the leg to recreate them etc. - but it depends on many, many factors - it's not a simple, one-size fits all type of procedure - surely, though, it doesn't hurt to have your Mom's scans etc. sent to JH (&/or MD Anderson) to have them review and let you know if they feel it is possible -

Good luck, Shari. P.S. Alisa (who posts) recently - in Jan or Feb - had a whipple and I believe had some fancy vein work done - maybe post a question to her - she had Dr. Lillemoe at JH -
