I had a Whipple last November (removed a portion of pancreas, my gall bladder, duodenum and part of my stomach). For the past three months, I’ve been struggling with bile leaking into my stomach. Everything I eat has a very bitter taste and there's a white coating on my tongue. I've been taking Questran which helps a little but not as much as I had hoped. My doctor just prescribed Carafate this week in a pill form. I was wondering if anyone else had this problem and/or had suggestions on what could help. Are there other medications that work better or certain foods that could alleviate the problem? This bitter taste is making it difficult to put weight on which I'm trying hard to do since I lost so much after the surgery. Any and all suggestions welcome. Thank you.
