My dad had his whipple in July and is finishing up his first series of
Gemzar. I just got to visit over the weekend and he is doing great, but his
diet is still not great. He says he's hungry all the time. He's not taking
any creon because 'it's too expensive' and 'the doctor said I should be
weaning myself off of it' -?!? The constant hunger seems to mean that he's
not getting good nutrition and I'm thinking its due to the lack of dietary
enzymes. I've never heard the 'wean yourself off of creon' advice - is that
normal or perhaps he misunderstood?
