After Whipple surgery, Pathology showed Positive Lymph Nodes
My mom had a Whipple procedure about two weeks ago. Pathology reports came back showing 3 of 39 regional lymph nodes positive. Margins were negative. She did four cycles of neoadjuvant chemotherapy and will start adjuvant chemotherapy at six weeks post whipple.
Does anyone have experience with whipple plus positive lymph nodes? MD Anderson didn’t provide much detail in terms of prognosis.
