I did out my pancreatic organ failure by giving my go Dr.a stool sample. She put me on this medicine and I feel it helping a little. I need to stick with the diet that comes along with it. I still have the left side pain and back pain. I will give a up soon!

Had whipple procedure June 2013. Recently I stopped taking creon because it is causing a lot of gas and loose stools, about 5times a day. I take 24000. I will see how it goes. Maybe I need to take less.

Never had pancreatitis or other precursor diagnoses but did use alcohol at times heavily. Thank God the wake up call cam ... Show Full Comment

I am wondering what to eat with this since I don't eat much after losing my colon also and now the pancreas is not functioning right. I don't drink but smoke which I am working on stopping.
