Raph dipped down to 169 from the normal 205 he always was. The body takes every calorie that is consumed or stored and uses it for the healing process. Ralph was told to try and drink and eat as many calories that he could which included me making shakes with boost with ice cream. (We had enzymes in the side just in case- but he never needed them.) Anything high in calories were things like pastas, mashed potatoes. All these things helped and within 2 months he was u p to 190. Walking, moving are all things that will help.

Some people have troucle with their stomachs and food pases slowly. This too is part of the procedure and process. Although Ralph had a distal pancreatectomy many of the sidde effects are the same.

Of course check with your Dr and a nutritionist. There are some great articles in the past editions of Pan CAN's newsletter.

Hugs- Mariann
