Re: creon / 2nd attempt chemo?

hi
dad seems to be happy taking the creon now. i think it is making a difference as on the last weigh in he hadnt lost any weight which would have been the first time in ages.
he is fine with taking the capsule rather than sprinkle it on to.
hope you all managed to have a good xmas
