Wife Has Lesion At The End Of The Bile Duct From The Gall Bladder Near The Head Of The Pancreas.?

Postby MacPherson » Sat Sep 16, 2017 5:59 pm

It is not malignant and it has not spread to the pancreas so why the Whipple? Why can't they just take out the gall bladder and the bile duct and the stones and replace the bile duct with something that works just as well without touching the pancreas? She shows no signs of jaundice, no pain except referred pain from gall bladder in upper right back shoulder blade. No vomiting, full energy, great appetite, poops well etc. They said half the pancreas then they said only 20%. If it ain't broke don't fix it. Why so fixed on the pancreas? The lesion in the problem not the pancreas.

I believe that what she is suffering from is a type of disease known as the "blue waffle" syndrome, I advise you look up images for comparison seeing as there are various types of this syndrome so you know exactly what treatment it is that you need for your wife's illness

Whatever you do, don't listen to the Mike guy. Blue Waffle pictures are a trick to get people to look up the picture and it's really

Surgery is extremely complicated. You can't just snip out the bits you don't want and stick in "something that just works as well".

In the case of pancreatic cancer, if it spreads, then you're almost certainly finished. Very few people live more than five years after pancreatic cancer shows up, unless it's eradicated, completely and totally. It might not be broken now, but if the cancer reaches it, then you aren't in a good position.
