Dear Mohit, welcome to our wonderful family! We are so very sorry to hear about your Mom. It sounds like the doctors are doing all the right things and when one goes in for CC surgery the doctor never knows what they are going to find until they are in the area. With that said, we are firm believers in second and third opinions.
My husband had a Whipple 5 years ago and did well for about 3 years. Then it returned where the duodemun used to be. A year after that it returned again. He had Cyberknife and it was wonderful. Unfortunately a year later it returned again! I do know that for Cyber Knife the mass must be under 7cm in size and there can not be a lot of other tumors. After his Whipple 5 top doctors all said chemo would not help him. I know you will be getting lots of suggestions and welcomes here. In the meantime you might search around our site as we have tons of information. There is a section on Nutrition as well. Are the doctors giving Mom anything for the Nausea? There are some wonderful meds for that and they really do help. Please keep us posted.December 3, 2010 at 2:28 pm #4417mohitParticipant
