I was hoping someone could give me some answers. My father had the whipple procedure last July and was doing great after his recovery. However, this spring he was diagnosed with malabsorption and has continual diarrhea after everything he eats. He has gone from 180 pounds to 130 lbs., and is losing weight at a very rapid rate now. A pound a day to be exact. Doctors are telling him he is still cancer free and every test for anything else is negative as well. Does anyone know what to do to keep food in him or where to go to get him some help. I don't want to see him starve to death. Thanks! ~Andrea
