Hi gang, happy easter to all. I am back again needing some more advice. A quick synapsis as to the situation, my brother had the whipple procedure done a few weeks ago which was a success. Came home and was doing ok. I suppose it has been about 3 weeks now since. Unfortunately, my poor brother keeps getting diarrea. Basically whatever or no matter how little he eats he goes to the bathroom. He has lost at least 20 lbs since. He is still jaundice to a degree and really looks terrible. He is supposed to go back to doctor this friday but I told him he should call tomorrow. My question is is this normal? Like I said I dont like the way he looks and nothing will stay in him food wise. He is not vomitting or anything but the diarrea keeps coming back. He does take imodium to try to stop it which works for a day and than back it comes. Any help on this??

Thanks, Jeanette
