    Cannot Digest Fat after Surgery

      First, welcome to the WhatNext forum.

      I believe that the best place to start is your dad's primary care physician. Is your dad as concerned about what has been happening as you are? If so, just encourage him to go get a check-up and tell the doc about what has been happening. Ask for a referral to a specialist if anything can be pinned down. If he is not concerned then there isn't much you can do. He is an adult and you don't want to nag.

      As Harry said, Dad's are sometimes hard to get to do anything for you and you can only do so much. But, I would encourage getting him in to see someone, and don't take no for an answer. My father started losing weight and the docs let it go for 6 months, be the time I finally got someone to look into it, his cancer had spread and was the problem.

      Best of luck to you and Dad both.

      Suggest that he may want to see a registered dietitian or nutritionist. Fat is the hardest of the macro nutrients for all of us to digest. Fortunately, we don't need much fat in our diets. A dietitian/nutritionist can develop a no/low fat eating plan for him and, if necessary, suggest easily digested supplements for essential fats.
