9 months ago.  Since surgery I've lost 70 lbs.  Do not be afraid, just plan on a slow recovery.

After my whipple I lost 27 pounds then stablized.  First, are you taking enzyme tablets, most do after Whipple.  Next, experiment as I am sure you are with food, I went heavy on eggs (this was the best food I found and was not greasy),  chicken, oatmeal, and peanut butter and also pineapple and it worked for me.  I mostly eliminated heavy fat foods including cheese, milk, and greasy meats (but not lean meats).  Your weight loss is significant and with little guidance from medical folks I had to experiment with different foods based on my research and findings and results. Ialso ate plenty of nuts that seemed to help.  Hang in there and keep us all up to date on any success you have.

Protein, protein and depending on you, all greasy foods will "run right through you." The protein drinks are good, lots of fish, sardines, salmon, trout and Kefir drinks helped and I found much relief internally from Sea. Buckthorn oil. With me, I was starting to lose a lot of weight, but then it seemed something inside stopped. .and I started to gain...I was 265 lbs. Pre-Whipple, now I am 180, and have been 180 for 3 years or more.Heck of a way to lose weight, but it saved my Life. Keep praying and being grateful for all He gives us..free
