You guys who are taking or have taken 6MP - have you had any pancreas problems - pain, gas, fatty stool, etc. I think that is what is going on. I don't have a gallbladder but feels like the attacks I used to have. And, this morning realizing the "mucous" in my stool is probably "fat". I have a call in to the doctor but may not hear until Monday. He increased my doseage 8 days ago from 50 mg. to 75. and then started the "attacks" - gas, pain around middle where my bra fits, etc.
