Anyone tried over the counter enzymes to help digest fat post whipple?
I had whipple surgery 3 months ago. Fortunately, I was able to keep 1/2 my pancreas. I continue to have digestive issues (frequent trips to the bathroom) because I can not process the fat. I have lost 35 lbs since the surgery. I understand that there is Rx medication which can address this issue but it is very expensive. Has anyone had the issue just go away over time (3 months is still early in the healing process) or been successful in taking an over the counter (OTC) enzyme supplement? I have ordered an enzyme supplement and will try it. I plan to post my results here but if anyone has already tried this, I am interested as to how it went or is going and what brand you tried.
Thanks for reading and thanks in advance for responding.
