My husband has had the CT scan as well as the endoscopy (2) times. He does have jaudice and they kept him in the hospital 8 days doing tests and we are no further along at understanding the problem. We have not received the biopsy reports back on his gall bladder and lymph nodes. He is scheduled for a Whipple procedure this Wednesday. Today we decided to put the skids on. We will meet with his oncologist tomorrow to ask why they want to do this radical procedure without knowing the results of the biopsy of the gall bladder and lymph nodes. To my knowledge they have not done a CA 19-9 blood test. Thanks for your input. I will ask the questions you suggested.
