Hello, jacobsnurse,
You mention that your gallbladder surgery was six years ago. I am
assuming that the surgey was done through a laparoscopic approach.
It is rather unusual to have problems with adhesions after this long
interval. Now you mention about the pancreas being abnormal.
If your pancreas enzymes like Serum Amylase, Lipase were elevated,
you may have pancreatitis. This can be cofirmed by CT-Scan.
Creon is a pancreatic enzyme supplement that is given for people
who have deficiency due to repeted attacks of pancreatitis. The
condition known as Chronic pancreatic insufficiency . This would make
you to have fatty stools (Frothy and floats on the water and foamy as well).
Hope this answers your concerns and you can talk to your own doctor.
I wish you well.
