This is great, hope you are feeling better and adjusting to your new plumbing OK. Taking things slow is good advice, your strength will return soon enough, no need to push too hard. I did some things I probably should not have done as soon and will be spending my vacation time this summer recovering from hernia surgery :(

Most of us lose a lot of weight following the whipple, the best advice I can give you is to try and eat small portions often and pack as much calories and nutrition into them as you can. I drank one or two Ensure shakes everyday, made smoothies with yogurt, bananas and protein powder. It's not uncommon to have issues with your sense of taste being off for awhile. The biggest thing for me was finding food that I wanted to eat and would agree with my new digestive design. It took some experimenting to find what my body wanted but within a few weeks I was eating everything in sight.
