Jim's Surgery

 

Who: Dr. Richard Shulick will be perfoming the surgery on Jim.  He is one of the best on the planet, and specializes in Gastro Intestinal cancer, including the pancreas. 

 

What: The surgery is called a whipple.  We have decided to do this to treat his cancer, which is ampullary cancer (a type of pancreatic).    

 

Where: Jim's surgery will be performed at the University of Colorado Hospital - Anschutz in Aurora Colorado.  It is located at:

 

1665 Aurora Court

Aurora, Colorado

Map

 

Inside the Building:

2nd floor, Anschutz Inpatient Pavilion (Surgery)

6th floor, Anschutz Inpatient Pavilion (ICU)

 

When: Surgery is scheduled for May 27th, 2015

He will then recover in ICU, and then remain at the hospital for an average of 1 to 2 weeks.  

 

Why: We hope this surgery will cure Jim's cancer.  The doctor will check the edges of the extraction to ensure that he has gotten all of it.  It looks like chemotherapy and/or radiation will follow.

 

After surgery: Jim will need 4-6 months to fully recover from this surgery.   

 

Visiting

 

Please see Jim's Calendar to setup a visit.  

 

Jim will be staying in ICU for the first few days, then he will be transferred to another room in the hospital for the next 8 to 14 days.

 

He will then go home to Greeley for the major part of his recovery. It will be a long, uphill battle for the first 8 weeks.
