Re: Pancreatic cancer

Hi Eliz You will be on Creon for the rest of your life. Without it you will have malabsorption. We have experimented in our case with Creaon. She has been told to take 2 per meal. She takes 4 per big meal and less for a snack. Experiment with it and find the optimal dose. No doctor can tell you exactly how many you need. Your body will determine it. Listen to your body. Cheers
