Yes a lot of whipple patients have extremely low calcium because of the dynamics of the surgery. They might want to check her spine for small fractures just to prevent any more troubles for her.

It is usually around the five year mark that they notice the low calcium and fractures occur.

I think drs have said that the hip bones fracture and it causes them to fall. It had been assumed in the past that the fall caused the fracture.

My family members dr also suggested an alkaline diet too.
