My mother takes Creon 20 and it was very confusing at first. The enzymes prevent diarrhea very well for her, but taking more to prevent pain after eating was no help and got very expensive ($7 per pill). After speaking to the surgeon's nurse she said not to alter the doseage. She said it was okay to take one or two but to discuss it with them before taking any more than that.

If anyone has any suggestions for preventing pain after eating I would love to know. Does it ever get better? She had surgery October 6th and is still suffering.
