    Thanks for the prompt response. Additional CT Scan was good, Drs can’t identify the source. Few Drs.  GP/Oncologists are familiar with the Whipple surgery so they are not aware of related complications. Surgeons don’t do a follow up so I have no knowledgeable Dr. to consult. Is there a post surgery diagnostic specialist or referral anyone can recommend in Canada? I am in La Paz Mexico for a few months now; any Mexican recommendations?

    Unfortunately they found a tumor on the bile duct and cancer cells in the margins and in 4 lympth nodes. Surgery went well as did the recovery; however, I recently requested an enzyme prescription and that is making digestion more comfortable. I had surgery at the Queen Elizabeth II in Halifax. It is a teaching hospital for Dalhousie University. Head surgeon was Walsh and his team met me every morning in my room at or before 6 am. Had all treatments in PEI except for the surgery in Halifax which the PEI government health care covered.
    My mother-in-law passed of pancreatic cancer a few years ago in Edmonton Alberta. She also had a Whipple procedure, hers at the University of Alberta Hospital. Unbelievable coincidence .
