So when will that procedure take place? Right away?
There are apparently a lot of blood vessels that run through the pancreas. They can't remove the head of the pancreas without severing the vessels, so along with the head they remove the gallbladder and duodenum, which are fed by those vessels. After they do that, they connect the end of the intestines to the remainder of the pancreas, then cut a hole in it and attach the stomach a bit downstream.Whipple?
