I had a whipple the end of May and had lots of complications. I was in ICU about 5 weeks. My lungs collapsed and I had a bacterial infection. I am happy I survied it all. I still get abcesses on my incession 4 months post op. I have had 1 and a half weeks of radiation and xeloda so far. I am stage 2 and my ca-19 numbers are normal. I am doing all I can to fight this thing. I plan on being a long time survior!!!
