I am 32 years old and had a whipple done on Jan 25, 2013. Since my surgery, I have hospitalized 3 times with pancreatitis. I now have a GJ (feeding tube) and I am NPO except for ice chips and sugar free gum. My doctor thinks I would benefit from having the rest of my pancreas removed. Has anyone had issues like this? I am on Creon and pain medications daily.
