recovery from acute pancreatitis

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.  Any information on what is normal or personal experiences would be greatly appreciated...................thanks.

Welcome to the gastroenterology community!  I believe that the cause of the pancreatitis may change what to expect in recovery.  I would recommend asking his PCP what to do.
