Pancreatitis and Hep C

A very good friend of mine is about 2 months short of completing treatment (Interferon and Riboviron) for Hep C.  The past few months have been horrible.  It is as though her body is completely breaking down.  She is now hospitalized with pancreatitis and they have stopped treatment, for good.  

I am just trying to find out if anyone else has gone thru this and what it all might mean.

Any words of wisdom would be appreciated.

Thanks.

My sis has pancreatitis and has had it for years, and she was put on a special diet to help treat it...here is a link to one very similar to hers

with acute attacks, I think they normally put you to the ER because of pain, etc...course, I'm no expert, but I hope she has dicipline in her eating habits, and sees a good doc about this issue...like with most diseases, time to really take care of ourselves, hope she's better soon...

I did not get pancreatitis during treatment but 5 months after stopping treatment.  I too was doing fairly well with treatment until I reached my 4th month.  I then just went downhill from there.  Was told just side affects.  I would suggest that your friend not set herself up by expecting immediate improvement.  (I did).  I wish her the best.

I too, was diagnosed with Pancreatits, and have high liver enzymes, my stomach was basically swollen shut.  I was taken to the ER, given demerol for the severe pain, and was hospitalized for 6 days - being watched closely eating ice chips and water (one tablespoon) every few hours..  I was told I was dying, so scary...

Here is a book I found online that might help witht he diet issue:  From what I understand a "low" fat diet is key.  Keep me posted.
