Pancreatitis healing time

Common Questions and Answers about Pancreatitis healing time


Avatar n tn As for GB surgery, depends on whether it's laproscopic or open. If the first, then hospital stay is about a day, with an initial healing time of about a week. (Total healing time about 6 weeks.) If open, then the hospital stay is a few days, with a total healing time of at least 6 weeks, since they not only cut the organ, they also have to cut through your abdominal muscles. In the meantime, avoid ALL fats. All.
Avatar n tn Age has nothing to do with pancreatitis. Matter of fact, the biggest cause of pancreatitis is alcohol. Sadly, many chronic panc patients here in the US are treated like dirt because the nurses and doctors assume they're alcoholics. I'm sure your doc has already told you, but for anyone else reading, alcohol is 100% off the menu for pancreatitis patients. Don't let the word "chronic" scare you. Roughly speaking, acute means only sudden onset.
Avatar f tn 5 with tylenol and ibuprofen being alternated around the clock, Doc's office visits every 2 days during that time span, finally i got told they had no idea what was causing my son to run fevers so high, they called it " Fever of Unknown origin" On may 23rd my son woke up at 6:30 am crying, i asked him what was wrong, he stated he needed to go potty, but could not move his legs to get to the bathroom, by 7:30 am we were admitted into the local hospital.
Avatar f tn I am a 60 year old female who was diagnosed in the late 80s with acute pancreatitis and still have sporadic trouble today in 2014. A few weeks ago I was diagnosed with hcv and was wondering what effects I would have with the two diseases together, for instance if given treatment for my hep-c will it make my pancreas worse or will I even be able to do the hcv treatment at all?
Avatar n tn He is an alcoholic and has been for a very long time. He is suicidal right now and very depressed Can't shut his mind off, says it is going in 15 different directions, talks a lot Thinks he might be losing his mind Can't sleep Throwing up, gagging a lot Tried to drive out to work today and got to weak and almost passed out.
902019 tn?1249865014 Thanks catzz for comment good to hear of someone doing well. The doc at the last meeting did say something about the two ways this condition can go and said if it was long term he would need to look at something other than the steroids. Is that you on imrun long term or will you come off it and does it actually cure or control the condition. He did say my wife condition was unusual in that she had 90% of the symptoms for both cancer and AIP but for AIP her lymph nodes and IgG4 is normal?
Avatar f tn Pancreatitis at Christmas time. That is pretty classic. Is it possible that she got into some (really wrong for dogs) human Christmas food? Or even a bit of fatty meat? Anyway, that is past now. But it can take the pancreas time to heal after an acute bout of pancreatitis. Some regimes recommend fasting with only water, in order for the healing to take place. However, yes 10 days is quite a long time for a little dog to go with no nutrients at all. Is she getting any fluids?
Avatar n tn My husband has had chronic pancreatitis for the past 5 years. We found out 5 months ago he has course calicifications throughout the pancreas with cysts on the head and tail. He is insulin-diabetic now and has lost approx 40 pounds. He has good and bad days. My concern is this. When he feels "bad" an odor of feces eminates from his body. Or sometimes it even smells like really dirty oily hair...mild but nonetheless notable. I am very concerned and can't seem to find an answer.
10917657 tn?1413989380 She has fatty liver disease again, but this time there is nothing else. Last time she had a UTI, which is what we believed led her to stop eating. This time there is no reason. He gave her a cortisone shot and sent us home with an appetite stimulant. We are supposed to call him back within three days and let him know if there's any change or not. In the meantime the vet is going to consult with a specialist to see if there could be any other underlying cause.
Avatar n tn I too have been told by expert liver docs that healing or the healing process ALSO can cause pain similar to inflammation pain because the capsule also causes pain as it shrinks as it heals. The change is what hurts be it from swelling or shrinking in size. Some doctors of lesser experience throw out this idea and claim that pain simply isn't from your liver which in turn just hurts the patient more.
Avatar n tn I am having this problem for around one and half years and still I did not find any solution. I release gas all the time, I don't smell it but all people around me hold their noses, scratch their face. So it is obvious to me that the gas I release smells. Not only that, my breath also stinks. regardless of how good I brush and how long I brush, my breath stinks. So people are thinking that I am a nasty guy who do not brush and fart always.
3227046 tn?1458317076 Sepsis is very serious and to have had surgery on top of that- wow! People can be different in recovery/healing time for surgery and if you look at a thread about sepsis on here, it looks like that can be very draining. A key is to rest up a lot right now and not try to overdo. Take care of yourself and don't feel guilty for doing that! Your loved ones want you to get as well as you can and that takes time!
Avatar f tn All the doctors and surgeon have said they are certain that the first attack was because of gallstones but if it was and then the second attack was because a stone slipped through and the third attack was because I didn’t know you weren’t supposed to drink while the pancreas was healing why did I get it the 4th time? I was trying really hard with my diet and doing well.
Avatar n tn What does your vet say? How is your dog acting? Is there still joy when you walk in the room? Does he still love his toys? It is the hardest decision ever to be made, and very personal, but your dog is communicating with you and will let you know if life is too much of burden these days. I'm so sorry.

1691320 tn?1306008133 Last night in the ER with the hubby whom has hep C and pain in his right upper quad, which turned out to be pancreatitis... they had a code blue come in. At which the elderly lady pasted away after I saw them wheel her in, with a frantic paramedic doing cpr on her as the stretcher raced down the hall to the ER room. After a few moments, I took a break.. walking outside as the warm wind blew into the darkness, I asked God to take her by her hand and welcome her home...
Avatar f tn She is on IV treatment and no oral diet. I want to know what is the average healing time for this disease? I am concerned about what I read about this disease. She is complaining about soar stomach n acute pain with no real relief. Please suggest!
Avatar f tn You have to feel every bit of pain, but there is healing after a loss. It will take time, rollercoster of emotions, anger, grief and healing. Do not torment yourself with the "what if's", but forgiveness, healing and starting over again. Best wishes.
Avatar f tn But of course if appetite has already gone and doesn't recover, then it probably is 'time'. Pancreatitis of course, can affect appetite VERY badly, until the pancreas heals. That can take a little time. Your dog may still have some options for a decent end-of-life care.... But of course, you know your dog better than anyone, and you will know when it is the right time to let her go.

1222076 tn?1423031349 Most of the time the pain would get so bad that I would throw up and couldnt really do anything because I was in so much pain. Then over a year ago I started getting other symptoms with my stomach like nausea, sometimes vomiting, belching, acid indigestion. Somedays I was horribly sick and I would still get the random pain every few months. Went to several doctors have had several tests done an ultrasound on my gallbladder, x ray of my stomach and everything was fine.
Avatar f tn This kind of pain with drinking can be from pancreatitis - I know. I have chronic pancreatitis and it all started with alcohol. Same pain in the back that radiates. They will do enzyme tests to see if they are elevated. But you should go in when you are in pain as if you wait, they could return back to normal. Maybe you shouldn't drink AT ALL. Ask your doc to refer you to a gastroenterologist.
Avatar f tn The yelping seems to happen mostly when she tries to get into a sitting or lying down position, and this morning she was scared to go down the stairs and yelped every time she tried. It doesn't seem to be a pain in any of her limbs though. She seems like she is keeping her head low and when I very gently tried to move her head and neck to either side and tilt it to the side she started to yelp.
Avatar n tn After doing a endoscopy my stomach pain was twice as bad, it must have gotten irritated from doing the test, I went to the hospital 3 times in 1 week, each time they didnt help me. I had no appetite at this time either and barely ate anything. I just recently went for computerized stress test ( it measures your vitamin levels, food allergies, and can detect parasites. I was diagonsed with giardia, I was given natural medinces to fight the parasite.
Avatar n tn My current doctor has not listened to me when I use a diabetes medication and complain about pancreas pain, nausea, have been missing work and using up paid time off that limits me using it for vacation time. Has any one else sued their dr for negligence? Is this a question I can ask on this forum?
Avatar n tn Hi, Ask your doctor for a blood test for Amylase and Lipase levels to rule out pancreatitis. When your in pain is the best time to draw the blood. If you have pancreaittis, the levels will be elevated at this point. And hopefully the MRCP will show something. But it doesn't always. I just had another CT Scan and it came back fine. Said my pancreas was unremarkable yet I have Moderate Chronic Pancreatitis that I got from a bad Gallbladder surgery.
Avatar m tn I have had a history of digestive problems for years, mostly with loose stool, gas, acid re-flux and constant nausea. I was recently diagnosed with chronic pancreatitis, and I have changed my diet dramatically. I no longer eat fatty, spicy or acidic foods, and I have cut alcohol and caffeine out of my diet completely. My current diet is now oatmeal for breakfast. Raisins, a turkey on wheat sandwich (no other toppings) and a pudding for lunch.
Avatar n tn I am having zero trouble with the incisions or the incision sights; they are healing great. HOWEVER, my rib area feels like someone repeatedly kicked me. Ice packs and vicodin are becoming less effective in dealing with the pain. I am wondering if they accidently bruised my liver during surgery. This discussion is related to <a href='/posts/show/235176'>Problems after gall bladder surgery</a>.
Avatar f tn Strict asepsis should be maintained and the primary problem for knee replacements is infection and secondary is deep vein thrombosis. With infection the healing is disturbed and it becomes very difficult to treat and you have to follow regular exercises at your ankle to avoid deep vein thrombosis. If infection is not completely cured it relapses and also there are resistant staphylococci to many antibiotics.
559187 tn?1330786456 I went to see my GI docor on Monday afternoon and he said that I had to go back into the hospital as he did not feel that the pancreatitis had completely resolfved yet and I appeared very dehydrated. I couldn't help but start crying. Fortunately my husband was with me so that helped tremendously. I thought I would be out today, Friday, but I have been on what they call NPO or nothing by mouth since Monday.
