pancreatitis

Avatar n tn about 4 weeks ago i had to take my mom to the ER because she was suffering from severe stomachache. It turned out to be acute pancreatitis. She was admitted in the hospital and stayed there for 3 weeks. She's been out of the hospital for 2 days. I am really worried because she looks really tired and she says that she has stomach pain as if it was sored. I wanted to know if these are normal symptoms after an acute pancreatitis ?.

Avatar n tn And make sure you stick to a diet that 'agrees' with the guidelines of trying to handle pancreatitis. It can take a heck of a long time to start to feel decent. With pancreatic cancer symptoms, there normally are very, very few until the cancer is well-advanced.
Avatar n tn I am eating a very low fat diet. In fact I haven't branched out much with my diet as I'm afraid of another attack. I dont know if it was the chicken breast or maybe the overactivity but ended up in the hospital a couple of weeks ago with elevated amylase and lipase. The removal of the gallbladder really set things off for me. I am taking Pancrealipase with all my meals now & try to eat every few hours as I've lost almost 20 pounds in the last six weeks.
719251 tn?1230344505 My mother has been suffering from Pancreatitis for the past 4months. She has been in hospital three times with severe pain, vomitting, and fluid in the abdominal. In that time she has lots over 25kg. She is 60 years old but since loosing so much weight she looks like 80 years old. She no longer drinks but continues to smoke. What worries me the most is that she eats very tiny amount of food, she vomitts everyday and she is just not getting any better.
Avatar f tn She thought she had the flu for over two weeks, she went to the ER and was admitted for acute pancreatitis. She stayed in the hospital for 2 weeks. Ellie is a vegan so her diet was optimal to start with. After a month or two things settled back into normal and then she had another episode in October/11. Scans and tests do not reveal any stones or blocked ducts but 1/3 of her pancreas is necrotic. She was a healthy 25 yr old that by her own admission did drink beer and or wine but not to excess.
Avatar n tn Would pain due to pancreatitis be disabling in most cases? I am having post gallbladder removal problems, and I am concerned that my pain is due to pancreatitis? Had my surgery in June with a lot of problems afterwards. At one point I was diagnosed with a bile leak, and given antibiotics. After that I felt pretty good for several months, but now the pain has started again. I have a lot of pressure under my ribs, both sides. Stomach area is burning.
Avatar n tn I WOULD LIKE TO HEAR FROM THOSE WITH PANCREATITIS AND SOD, I WILL BE HAVING MY 6TH ERCP SINCE OCT TO REMOVE A STENT IN MY PANCREATIC DUCT, THIS TIME THEY WILL DO A SPINCTERECTOMY IN THE DUCT. ALSO, IF ANYONE HAS USED PANCREATIC ENZYMES..
Avatar f tn Your Triglycerides are higher then average and indicate to much fat in your diet. Again, that can also be managed along with a healthier diet. Heart Palpitations can have a variety of reasons. Sometimes anxiety and stress can play a part. Certain meds and even Caffiene can raise your heart rate. As Lynn stated, seeing a trusted Dr would be your next step to rule out disease.
Avatar n tn We took him to a specialist hospital where he had the same treatment in ICU as a human with pancreatitis. He had a central line placed in his neck so he didn't have to get stuck with needles all the time, and was put on TPN - nutrition given via IV. He also had a ton of pain meds - a 75 mcg fentanyl patch along with injections of dilaudid for breakthrough pain. At least I know he was as comfortable as humanly possible those last couple of weeks.
Avatar f tn I just got out of the hospital, diagonosed with gallstones and pancreatitis. Doc said I will need to have gallbladder removed. I have been reserching some on the internet and I have a few concerns. Me- 39 year old Female, 214 pounds (ugh), otherwise healthy and active, Vegatarian diet- No meats, No fried foods!! First off, I am pretty sure I got the gallstones from doing too many fasting cleanses! The first few attacks I had was during a cleanse!
Avatar f tn That can only be done in the hospital. I had pancreatitis and was hospitalized for 8 days before the enzymes were low enough for me to leave. They did stay just above normal for two more weeks. Perhaps your enzyme level isn't high enough to require treatment yet. I would keep up on this and see your doctor again soon if the pain continues.
Avatar n tn If she isn't able to hold down water, I honestly think she needs to go back in hospital. The way pancreatitis is treated is by allowing that organ to rest through literal starvation. Same treatment holds for human patients too. The dog is given IV hydration and nutrition, nausea and pain control, and then you wait it out. Is she eating anything at all? I hope your vet explained that avoiding fats is very important right now - and in the future.
Avatar n tn And that is something to have checked especially if you have had 4 bouts of pancreatitis already. If you have Pancreatitis, it NEVER goes away once you have gone chronic. With 4 episodes under your belt, I would be surprised if you have not gone chronic yet. You titled this Severe Pancreatitis. It usually doesn't get to that stage without you being Chronic. The pancreas is an organ that DOES NOT rejuvinate itself. Once damaged it is damaged for life.
Avatar n tn A portion of her intestine was re-routed and attached to the psuedocyst to drain. She continued with severe pancreatitis and a month and a half later she uderwent another surgical procedure to open the pancreatic ducts to allow the fluid to flow. She had an amazing recovery and was eating and out of the hospital two weeks later. Now, one year later she is having another bout of pancreatitis and we are so scared.
Avatar f tn He was released from the hospital Friday before last. Looking horrible he aged about 10 years just in 3 weeks which started with and emergency room visit for horrible pain about a month before. Then back into the emergency room a few days later as no one could bother to see him any sooner then a month later of the first visit to the hospital. The 2nd time the emergency room had the gastro doc look at the ct scan and the doc wanted to see him right away and the ER was told to admit him.
Avatar n tn I was in the hospital last month with pancreatitis. The treatment is for no food. The pancreas needs to rest, and by not eating it can heal. Your baby will get plenty of nourishment from what your body has stored. Not being a Dr I can only guess that another case of pancreatitis would be worse for the baby than to go without food for a few days. By leaving without the Dr discharging you. You are showing the Drs that you are unwilling to follow Drs orders.
Avatar m tn My boyfriend just got out of the hospital with acute pancreatitis. Not having much luck finding information on what to expect with the recovery. Such as how long will his stomach feel bloated and how long before what use to be normal bowel patterns return. Alot of information was given regarding his diet during recovery, but next to nothing regarding what to expect physically during the first few weeks after hospitalization.
Avatar n tn bran will also help with the constipation GNC could also help you out finding protien enriched items such as whey to suppliment her diet. please be carefull and dont force the recovery though,pancreatitis is a very serious illness and once it starts to reoccur and becomes chronic,,,,,theres no comming back if you know what i mean.

611067 tn?1458595083 I know you were on a liquid diet, are you getting any vitamins in ? Can you drink Boost ? Hope they get to the bottom of this for you. Hang in there.
1985662 tn?1327527494 I on the other hand have never gotten used to not being able to eat which is very irratating.When I go to the hospital with an episode Im always released the same day or the very next.My lipase levels would be 800 and my most recent was 600.All they ever do is an ultrasound or ct scan but it all comes back normal except my lipase lvls.I do take digestive enzymes and they have helped.I take 20 ezymes a day..If I happen to miss a dose or like not take as many my pancrease becomes irratated.
254215 tn?1195096984 We waited for over 3 weeks when our dog had panc, and finally had to euthanize him because he was just not getting any better. Chronic pancreatitis can be managed to a certain extent with diet. My aunt had a mini schnauzer (the breed is notorious for chronic panc) who lived to be 19 - most of those years with chronic pancreatitis, and occasional hospital stays for acute attacks. I doubt the paw-dragging is in any way related to the pancreatitis.
1453931 tn?1285188953 Sorry to hear about your pancreatitis. Just a question how did you know you had chronic pancreatitis? I had my GB removed just like you in 2008. I had a bile leak and when they preformed a ERCP I got acute pancreatitis. It is a risk associated with the ERCP. Anyway after my amylase and lipase went down to normal I was checked out of the hospital. However since then I have had horrible nocturnal abdominal pain and it also happens when on an empty stomach longer than 4 hours.
Avatar n tn I don't know if this is pancreatitis or not. They just told my to be on a low fat diet but I don't know if I should eat at all. I have to take tagament all day long for acid I never had until gallbladder surgery. Can anyone help me.
Avatar n tn Second, has anyone on here that has been diagnosed with any form of Pancreatitis taken any diet suppliments? I have Idiopathic Severe Chronic Pancreatitis. I want to lose some weight and excersizing alone is not doing it due to the meds I take.
1264088 tn?1279484422 CP is most often caused from drinking but other things can cause it such as Hereditary CP Cystic Fibrosis Chronic blockage of the pancreatic duct Injury Hyperlipidemia Hyperparathyroidism The enzymes help with the digestion of fat. They can help the pain in a few people but others they do not help. It is best if you stick with a very very low fat diet. You can also have bouts of acute CP so anytime you feel worse I would go to ER.
902019 tn?1249865014 I was diagnosed 2 years ago with AIP, have a 25 year history of autoimmune disorders (eosinophilic vasculitis, mild Sjogren's). Usually have done well with prednisone for the various flare-ups but with AIP, still recurring symptoms and the elevated IgG4 periodically. Next step may be Imuran. Is there anyone out there who has had good results with Imuran for autoimmune pancreatitis?
