I agree with previous reply - you should see your doctor. Your surgery was less than 2 months ago. Feeling weak is not unusual after Whipple Surgery. Fatigue to the point of being unable to get out of bed is another thing altogether. Have you been able to get in a good amount of walking even just around in your house since surgery? The walking helps with getting your bowels back to normal, as well as (strange as it sounds) gives you more energy. Especially with time. Are you taking Creon with food? That will help with digestive issues. And lastly, again strange as it may seem, with the meals you are having, do they include a good amount of fiber? Fiber can help with bowel issues. Getting back to near normal after Whipple surgery takes time. If you are feeling depressed, it is good idea to seek counseling and possibly medication to help. Hope you get your energy back soon.
