Recommended Posts

We have just been contacted by an 86 year old gentleman who had his Whipple's surgery in March 2002 and he is doing well.

He said in his email:

While browsing the internet recently it occurred to me that I might be able to find out more about Whipple's Procedure than was available when I was afflicted and successfully operated on in 2002 at the XX by XX and his team. Back then all that I could find was a brief description of the operation with the technical name pancreatoduodenectomy.

I found your website through Google and I was amazed at the amount of information you have there. At the time of my operation was disappointed at the dearth of any written material for patients. Nevertheless, I could not complain that I was not kept verbally acquainted of what was essential for me to know.

I have attached an account of my experiences which might help prospective candidates for a Whipples. I would like to help as much as I can but as I am now 86 I fear that what I can achieve will be rather limited.
