Your SIL does need to see specialists in digestive systems and nutrition. Also, is she eating at all? She should be consuming food, with pancreatic enzymes like Creon to help. I had surgery with good outcome 16 years ago. Food was a big challenge at first, along with Dumping Syndrome (look it up please, not diarrhea) for the first few weeks. Things settled down. I lost a good bit of weight for the first few months. Your SIL must eat. Food probably tastes like cardboard, but it is imperative that she take makes the effort. If she is depressed, there are meds for that. I did not want food at all in the beginning, but I knew I had to eat. I hope you can doctors to help her. Malnutrition is definitely a risk after Whipple surgery.
