I had whipple surgery in April. For the first month or two I was as you say about your mother. I take creon with my meals and Welchol sometimes during the day. I have bouts of direaria but not all the time. Mostly I have a normal BM schedule. She will continue to get weaker if she can't retain her food. I go to a Dr. that specializes in nutrintion after the whipple and he helps
