I had a Whipple in April 2011 and my Pancreas was removed. I have been taking ZenPep since then but am having bowel problems and a lot of gas. I would like to know if anyone out there has had the same problem and maybe has taken a different digestive enzyme with success. Thanks
hi suecarl827, I had a pancreatic necrosectomy, due to pancreatitis, and pancreatic necrosis and spent 6 months in the hospital. Also taking zenpep 20,000 units x3 each meal. I used to have a lot of gas and took over the counter gas x as prescribed by my doctor. It helped but I was taking it before every meal. Also I avoid gassy foods. It seems it is a common side effect of zenpep.
