    My husband' s chemo finished after 14 treatments as he was unwell. The latest scan showed that the tumour is growing. The oncologist offered further chemo, 5FU, but didn't enciourage him to take.

      My husband had a whipple June 2014. He understood that he was cancer free and did not have chemo. He was diagnosed with cholangeocarcinoma in March 2017. He had 16 chemo treatmenst in 2017 and again this year although the chemo was stopped after 14 treatments as he was unwell. We are awaiting the results of a CT scan and follow up treatment.

        I don't know which type of tumour was removed from the pancreas only that it had not spread to other areas.

Recovery took a long time probably the best part of a year.

This year however he didn't sail through the treat...
