Dear Nancy, welcome to our wonderful family but sorry you had to find us. My husband had a Pancreatic problem before his Whipple surgery and after the surgery I gave him Carnation Instant Breakfast. I do not know the sugar content. He loved them. They have enough nutrition that if a meal is skipped they can take the place of that meal. I used to mix fruit in, Teddy's favorite was a Vanilla with Banana and I would just use the blender for a few seconds. After surgery I made comfort foods as spicy and fried were a big no, no. Homemade chicken soup, chicken paprikash over noodles, pasta...things like that. Teddy's Diabetes did leave after a month or so as it was caused by the Pancreas being practically destroyed from a leakage of dye. It is a slow recovery from surgery and I hope you will see your dad starting to eat more as he feels better. No, you are not alone on this site, we are with you and use us to vent, ask or advise. Please keep us posted on your Dad's progress. Be strong!
Teddy ~In our hearts forever~ATTITUDE is EVERYTHING
