WHIPPLE PROCEDURE


I am a male subject. I am 71 years old. I had the Whipple in May of 2004. My large tumor turned out to be non-cancerous. Still it is the same operation, but no Chemo or radiation afterwords. I stayed in the hospital for 12 days. I can honestly say I suffered no pain. My eating habits have finally returned to normal, although my body functions have not. I have at least three movements daily, as well as many flatulations. All in all, now that I have been home for @ three months, I cannot say the procedure was that bad. Don Smason
