Hello Jacky,

I know it's a scary time waiting for an operation like this.

I had a Whipples in December and can say that I have made a good recovery, have a good appetite and am doing well.

I hope that this will be the same for your mum.

Best Wishes,

Hello Anne

Thanks, been to see Mum again today, so far so good she seems to be doing very well. We where surprised to see her out of bed on Tuesday just the day

after the big op. Just hope things continue if so she will be back on the general ward by the weekend.

Hope things keep going well for you.
