HI Jean,

this is a real trick. We went through this also. My relative had constant diarrhea after each meal and was afraid to eat anything. We talked to a nutritionist who suggested adding daily probiotics to the diet. The probiotics contain the 'good bacteria' that the intestines need to digest food.

And it was really important to take an acid reducer every morning before eating anything. The pancreatic enzymes are hard on the stomach. The acid reducer helps, and adding a probiotic twice a day virtually STOPPED the diarrhea after each meal within 36 hours. Try Probiotics, you can order them over the counter at your local pharmacy or but them at a health food store or but them at a Trader Joe's store if you have one. They are in the vitamin area.
