Hi, James. Mayo Clinic has some basic information on the Whipple procedure here: http://www.mayoclinic.org/tests-procedures/whipple-procedure/basics/definition/prc-20021393. Information on pancreatic cancer, including treatment, coping and support, is here: http://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/pancreatic-cancer/basics/definition/con-20028153. The treatment section of this latter website states "Expect a long recovery after a Whipple procedure. You'll spend several days in the hospital and then recover for several weeks at home." Best wishes.
