After a whipple surgery, the surgeon usually fades out of the picture. But unfortunately, there can be many many symptoms that occur after surgery that you need help with. The oncologist cannot help with many of these. You need an excellent gastroenterologist as well, experienced with the pancreas (since you lost a lot of this organ). A gastroenterologist should be able to help with the gas, dietary recommendations, pancreatic enzyme oral replacement, following you for nutritional deficiencies since you will not absorb nutrients the same way, bowel changes and more.

I agree with the others that being so tired you can't get out of bed is not typical. You need to be checked out.
