Good thought...hadn't crossed my mind.   I will mention it to my mom who can ask at the next appt.

Thanks!  Prayers, good vibes, thoughts...whatever you prefer, to your brother.  The smaller meal idea has been a bit helpful...also eliminating ALL skinned foods (tomatoes, potatoes, peas, peppers...).

Thanks for your reply!  We will continue to work with all doctors involved and try anything new they present.  We are learning that his is sort of a unique no-win situation, unfortunately.

Thanks...we are learning that this is sort of a unique situation and will continue to work with all doctors involved.  PB and crackers seem to go well.  He is on most RX that are offered after a Whipple including enzymes and anti-nausea stuff.  The surgery to remove scar tissue was discussed, but at his age and weakness stage, combined with the likelyhood that it would create more scar tissue, it wasn't a "go".  We will seek another opinion if needed.  Thanks for your reply!

Thanks!  He's on most RX things for these situations.  If he exclusively does the BRAT, he suffers from blockages.  It's really a no win situation, but I just thought I'd see if someone else had an idea.  I appreciate your time!

My dad is 9 months out from Whipple surgery. He was doing well from July to February, but has had sudden onset of chronic vomiting/diarrhea. He’s down 40 pounds in 2.5 months and can’t gain any energy. He’s on multiple “western” meds. We’re wondering if anyone has had success with non- traditional methods? The doctors say it’s a “blockage” or scar tissue issues and we have to manage the symptoms, but that it won’t go away. I’m reaching here...I know that, but thought I’d see if anyone had success with anything!
