Common Questions and Answers about Pancreatitis diet after npo

pancreatitis

Avatar n tn -) I lost my first dog to pancreatitis when he was almost 14. He was NPO for the last 3 weeks of his life. After the first week, he seemed well enough to try plain chicken and rice and he really enjoyed it. Little did we know it was his last meal. The next day he was right back to barfing everything - including water. We took him to a specialist hospital where he had the same treatment in ICU as a human with pancreatitis.
Avatar n tn Lost 50lbs, then admitted to hospital for 5 days, released with 12 hour tpn bag, which he used for 42 days. After ct scan showed improvement, he was told to start eating a low-fat diet. After 7 days, he was re-admitted to the hospital (from er) with debilitaing upper abdominal cramping. He has been in the hospital ever since. Repeated cT scan shows pancreatic tail inflammation (supposedly decreasing in size), and a pseudocyst which appears to be decreasing in size as well.
Avatar f tn I would feel pain start and go NPO for a few days just water and tylenol and could stave off most major attacks. In November had major attack with no warning, lots of vomiting and retching, to the ED where i was dx with idiopathic pancreatitis, remained in hospital 4 days on fluids, lots of fluids 250cc/hr for 4 days. I did not want to remain in hospital (nurses are the worst patients) for the next three days to await survey to remove GB so i was discharged day 4.
559187 tn?1330786456 The pain in my abdomen and back were not horrific like during the acute episode of pancreatitis, but it was painful. I am going NPO tonight after midnight in prep for the procedure tomorrow. Frankly, I am so frustrated with what is going on and when I can expect to go home. Everyone keeps asking me that qestion and I don't know how to answer and wish they would stop asking as it is upsetting me a lot.
Avatar n tn I was on either on a clear liquid diet or NPO (nothing) for six of the seven days I was there. Only the last day was I given a "liquid diet" for two meals and then solids for the last meal. My amylase and lipase levels were not elevated, my hepatic function tests were normal as was my urine sample. I went through abdominal x-rays, gastric emptying test, small bowel follow thru, and a MRI that zeros in on the bile duct (the specific name escapes me at the moment).
Avatar n tn So I would suggest that if you even suspect chronic pancreatitis, DO NOT DRINK, start eating a strict low fat diet, and keep looking for a gastroenterology specialist that will take your symptoms (pain, nausea, floating stools, discomfort after eating, fatigue, etc.) seriously and keep searching for the answer. Once a specialist can properly identify your condition, you can get treatment that will bring you some relief. Good luck!
Avatar n tn This pain also comes on suddenly, is colicky, localized, tender to mash on, worsens to extreme colciky pain 30 min after even fluids, is associated with nausea, obvious hyp0motility and malaise. After aprox 2-3 hours and being NPO except for sips the pain gradually decreases.CT of the ABD was essentially negative though there was some question of bowel wall thickening. Question is; could this be recurrent, intermittent bowel ischemia from SLE???
Avatar n tn I have been living on Coke heated in the microwave and then stirred until it is flat because it seems to be the only thing that helps settle my stomach. I was on either on a clear liquid diet or NPO (nothing) for five of the six days I was in the hospital. Only the last day was I given a "liquid diet" for two meals and then solids for the last meal. My amylase and lipase levels were not elevated, my hepatic function tests were normal as was my urine sample.

1932256 tn?1327949940 Your son's brain chemistry has been completely messed up for a long time and it's going to stay messed up for a while even after he completes detox. Depression and tears are very common. All at once they are flooded with all these emotions that have been suppressed with narcotics and they have absolutely no idea how to deal with them. It's frightening for them and it's frightening for the people who see it. Try to remember that, just like physical withdrawal, it WILL pass.
