    Thanks Marion. The link below shows diagrams of various surgical procedures envolving the GI tract. Six of them have Roux-en-Y reconstruction. No mention of Roux Y Lis, but it must be one of these.

    The following link has a better diagram of the Roux-en-Y Hepaticojejunostomy procedure used for a Klatskins tumor. You need to scan down to Figure 4b. It shows the removed bile duct & gall bladder. It probably should also show the section of removed liver as this is usually the case.

    The way I understand it: the same connection (Y-connection) is mover farther down the intestinal tract, closer to the lower end (distal) of the small intestine. Same procedure just different location.

    What is a Roux Y Lis? All of my Google results ended up in a foreign language. I know a Roux en Y is normally used for a Klatskin tumor. Is a Roux Y Lis used in a Whipple procedure?

    Hello Moontje, I am afraid you are going to have to wait to see/ talk with the ONC. I take it you have not talked to him yet? He is the one who has probably seen the scan. Hold on, hang in there. Don’t jump to any conclusions. Are you going to give him a call Monday or do you have an appointment set up? Will be thinking good thoughts and sending them your way!
