Re: Pancreatic cancer

im new to this forum, having had my whipples 9 weeks ago. Just started chemo yesterday and was lucky to be accepted for a "double dose" trial with iv and tablets I take at home. My main issue has been with pain/nausea/fatigue after eating, to the point that it didnt feel like eating was worth the effort. Am a bit disappointed I had to broach the subject of creon enzyme tabs with my consultant who was surprised I hadnt been given them already! Would be interested in hearing other people's experience of these tabs and whether I can expect good results as it does get me down sometimes...
