Pancreatitis, now what?

Hi Ellamaster,
I'm so sorry that you are going through all of this! That's terrible! My husband had Pancreatitis in his 70's. (He's now 82.) It was a side effect of his having Keytruda treatments for his lung cancer. He had the same problems that you are having. Vomiting, hard to hold anything down and pain. His primary care doctor referred him to a pancreas specialist who gave him a medication that makes the pancreas behave so you can eat again. Also one of the foods that helped him the most was homemade beef stew using a high quality of beef with a lot of omega 3 in it. We buy Allen Brothers beef. It's a little expensive but it's worth it. Plus, it tastes great! You can also get the same effect from their steak. However, my husband couldn't tolerate the steak until later. When your body is fighting something like you are, it needs a lot of protein. Also during this time, my husband drank a lot of water. That helps a lot! My husband did recover and is doing fine. The beef not only helped cure the Pancreatitis, his lung cancer is almost non existent. Today, he was outside pruning trees.

I don't know much about Pancreatic Cancer but the Pancreatitis didn't result in that for my husband. He already had lung cancer when he got Pancreatitis. I would suggest looking up Pancreatic Cancer on the Mayo Clinic website. They are very knowledgeable and you can trust their advice. I look up all of our physical problems on the Mayo Clinic Website. They have helped us immensely!

Another thing that helped my husband was prayer. We prayed constantly and it worked!

I know how you feel about your animals. They are part of your family! What kind of animals do you have? We had Snoopy our cat for 11 years. When we went on vacation, we left him at the Vet who was very good to Snoopy. However, we always worried until we got home and called often when we were away.

There is a website called Next Door where neighbors help each other and keep one another informed of safety instances in the neighborhood. You sign up for where you live. I have seen many people on that website who are willing to help people in hard times and help with their pets. You might try that.

I wish you the best of luck! I'll remember you in my prayers.

Thank you so much!
The drinking water is a good one; I DO drink enough, but should drink more. I am often thirsty later and fear this might have to do with it. I will drink more and tell the specialist.

Good that your husband recovered, that's wonderful.
Thank you ❤
