Thank you for your comments. I too have been taking pancreatic enzymes for 4yrs now. They do help keep my pancreas at bay most of the time. But when I have these flare ups, they last for months. I just went to Boston on 12/16 to get a 2nd opinion regarding the Whipple procedure and was told pretty much the same as what Dr. Smith told me here. So I guess on Feb 4th, I will be having this surgery. I hear all these horror stories about the Whipple but I don't want to continue living my life with this pancreatitis and fading away to nothing. Thank you again for writing.
