Hello, Sharon! How are you?

Citrucel is usually used to induce bowel movements, not stop them. The FDA lists its typical side effects as abdominal fullness and bloating.

Did your surgeon prescribe this?

Re: Liz (# 2)
pancreatic cancer has been ruled out. The reason for the.Whipple. surgery is that the duodenum has a tendency to flip over. Yes I have had 3 opinions and only 1 Dr feels safe for me if he performs the procedure, 1 Dr told me he would not touch me and the other 1 that I originally seen when I started having the flipping horrible pain says he will support what I decide to do however he doesn't want to perform the surgery himself. The pain is unbearable and I'm really scared. All feedback is welcome whether negative or welcome. Thanks
