Hi, My dad was diagnosed Dec 22nd, 2015 with PC. He had the whipple in January, followed by chemo and then radiation after a small recurrence. Through it all he has continued to lose weight-60lbs in all at this point. He can't seem to keep anything in his system. Everything runs right through him. He won't even go very far from home for fear of needing a bathroom immediately. He is taking enzymes. Does anyone else have any experience with this? No one can seem to give him any answers and it's so frustrating. He needs/wants to put on weight and we just don't know what to do at this point. Any advice is appreciated!!
