Surgery - gc1952

Procedure or Surgery Associated with Ampullary Cancer. Posted on October 24, 2011 View this journey (5 Experiences)

Surgery on 9/19/11 went well until the incision became infected and now I'm wearing a WoundVac to heal it. At least 3-5 more weeks with the WoundVac. The surgeon said they got all of the tumor but there were cancer cells in the sentinel nodes. The doctors will recommend radiation and chemontherapy after the incision heals.
