My mom underwent a Whipple last month (tail and head of pancreas removed) and has been prescribed 3 tablets (Creon 25) per day (Bkfast,Lunch and dinner). Pharmacist says the effect lasts for 4 hours so 3 is good for the day and meals in between. Is that statement right? Mom does get frequent stomach pain (mostly lower degree pain but occasionally much pain) with these 3 pills for day. Will a higher frequency help?
