In 1996, I was 18 and experienced acute necrotic pancreatitus from galstones. I was hospitilized for a month in and out of the ICU. Within the next few months I underwent surgery to remove the galbladder and a second surgery to remove a psydocyst that had formed between my stomache and pancreas. I was on a very strict diet and medication for the next year. Since then I have taken very good care of myself and have seen doctors regularly. In follow up cat scans, radioligusts can't even tell anything was ever wrong.
In 1996 I was told to stay away from caffine and alcohol completely. Was the doctor being over protective as I was living in the dorms as an 18 year old college freshman? I am now a 32 year old woman who has barely touched caffine and had zero alcohol. I want to know if a cup of coffee or a glass of wine would be impactful. I am getting married soon and would really love to participate in my own toast!
