Last few weeks her stomach has become bloated. 2 days ago she had a cat scan and docotr rung tonight wanting to discuss results im so worried that it has returned.

Hello Zelda...I am sorry to hear about the latest regarding your Mum recent situation. Bloating of the stomach is not a good sign. Be prepared to hear what you do not want to hear.

It appears you are from the UK. I have spoken to many folks from the UK that have exprienced below average medical care with this type of cancer.

Just be prepared...her doctor will be as positive as possible.

Take care, Leonard from Alamo California.

Hello Zelda....thank you for the information. The reason I thought the UK is because everyone that contacts me about the mother says Mum.

Again I wish you and your Mum all the best. If i can be of any more help...just ask and I will pass on everything I know and have experienced.

Take care...Leonard from Alamo California

Hello Lou,

No my wife did not have a Whipple. Awhipple procedure I believe is done when the cancer tumor is located at the head of the pancreas. My wife surgery included a Roux-N-Y Procedure. hre cnacer tumor was located at the "Y" of the hepatic ducts just under and outside the liver...

If they told you there is a spot on the liver it sounds like the cancer is spreading....I am very sorry to hear that news.

But never give up...stay positive as possible.

I'm sorry I can not give you info regarding a whipple.

Take Care, Leonard from Alamo California
