Hello, and I am pleased to help, use of my answers are for educational purposes only.
How is her weight and pain?
she has lost about 1 stone in the last 9 months,also hair loss,she is also depressed
She might want to get help from a couple of professionals - such as from a Nutritionist to help for her diet - as she more than likely requires a special diet to help her digest food.
She also probably needs to help with possible enzymes since she had a Whipple procedure.
hhow does she go about getting this
And, she also should consider getting help from a psychologist and a psychiatrist for her depression which is not that uncommon with people who have had a Whipple procedure.
She will need to see her GP - Primary doctor to get a referral, and you can help her too by calling for her to make appointments to get seen.
But, you have to be PRO-active in getting this done.
ok thank you for your help,is she in any danger if she does not do any of these things
No, there is no immediate danger - but she should try to get some help from these types of professionals so she does not continue to lose weight.
I hope this helps
