Pancreatic Cancer

Hi I'm Margaret. I guess I'm trying to maybe find someone that might be going through.....or has gone through......a similar side effect that I've been living with for nearly 8 years. I had a distal Pancreactectomy and Splenectomy procedure in June 2011 for quite a rare tumour.  Have been living with malabsorption problems since my surgery despite taking Creon, main problem being this has changed my life considerably as it has caused a lot of ongoing bowel problems. Have had tests and tried everything suggested to me and more. Was wondering if anyone else has experienced similar and possibly provide some suggestions. Thank you, Margaret.
