Have any of your physicians seemed concerned about Protonix side effects, or long-term use? My Dad is on it after his Whipple, and MD Anderson said to stay on it and KU Cancer Center said to stop.

Hi @mydadhadnetpancreatictumorandwhipple, that is so frustrating to get conflicting advice from different specialists about continuing vs discontinuing Protonix after Whipple. @caryns mentions that she takes it daily in this related discussion:
- Help...need guidance on eating after whipple https://connect.mayoclinic.org/discussion/help-need-guidance-on-eating-after-whipple/

Did either specialist explain why or why not to continue Protonix?
