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.
I am so glad you are sounding better. Hopefully your family doc will be of some help tonight. Glad to see there are still good ones out there!!!! Hang in there. I know it is challenging at times but you are doing really well. Stay strong sara
Mary, I'm still on mostly liquid, but I have read up about foods you can eat with chronic pancreatitis (which is what my family doctor thinks I have). Basically, it's a low-fat, low-sugar diet with complex carbs. On Friday night, I ate a sandwich with lean turkey, low-fat cream cheese and avocado. It was awesome and did not bother my stomach. I was told to keep the fat down 30 grams a day only. Saturday, I tried to eat dinner, but it hurt my stomach and so I stuck with SF/FF Jello instead and a Soy Protein drink. Last night I had a Soy Protein drink and a small sweet potato. I had no trouble. I'm gaining more energy from the food. So, yes, I'm getting nutrition and taking supplements as well.
My doctor even gave me her cell phone number a couple months ago. She is still trying to develop her practice here in my home town of Tooele, Utah, but it's not giving her enough money yet and so she is in Idaho working for a hospital in Soda Springs. So, she is only here every other week. She's awesome - to give me her cell phone number. I have only used it twice - the first time when my withdrawals were so horrible and I called her about it. The second time was when these pains were so horrible. She's just great!!!! I'm pretty lucky. I told her I would only call her if I truly needed her.
