Hi my boyfriend is 61and a three and a half year pancreatic cancer survivor. His diabetes got out of control and he's had chronic unrelenting diarrhea for a least a year, its ruining his life. No one can live with him because of the mess and smell. But thats nothing compared to the weight loss. He eats like a horse and he's lost 20/30 lbs since his whipple proceedure. Evry bone sticks out even though he eats like a horse! What do people do about the malabsorption? Can people die from just this 'side effect of the whipple proceedure? Thanks for any advice or input.
