Sep 14, 2018 · Pancreatitis in Diabetes/Endocrine System

Hi

Ive been suffering with chronic pain since may 2014.
Very complicated situation. I had gallstones which went on for months to try and keep the pain i ended up damaging my liver with a paracetamol overdose. I was admitted to hospital for 5 days and had treatment. Dec 2014 i became really unwell with acute pancreatitis secondary to gallstones. I had surgery to remove my gallbladder. Unfortantely the pancreatitis didnt improve. I was rescaned to find i had a pseudocyst on my pancreas. I went home with painkillers. Feb 15 i was readmitted with extreme tummy pain to find the cyst had grown to 31cm in diameter and ruptured my spleen. I had further surgery. Having surgery left me open to infection which was inside the cyst. The cyst became inflammed infected and ruptured. I ended up with a PICC line where i received TPN feed at this point in 6 months i had lost nearly 6 stone. My condition got worse i went into retention had a cathata put in. More fluids pumped thru. I got transfered to a larger hospital that had a pancreatic unit. July 2015 i had a 9 hour operation to drain the cyst and connect it to my small bowel. Finally i started getting better and went home Aug 2015. Sept 2015 admitted again with vomiting. I had a small bowel obstruction caused by adhesions from previous surgeries again more surgery 4th one in 10 months.
I started finally getting better for real. I have to take creon now but i still get upset tummy most days.
Further tests and scans showed i have diverticulitis plus a hiatus hernia and an umbilical hernia. Plus chronic pancreatitis and IBS.

I have no idea what i can cant or should eat but everyday my tummy plays me up. Needing to go go loo 10x a day. Constant sickness feeling. Niggling pain that turns into horrible pain. Its making me stay at home more.

I really need help even if i can control this with diet. Also im type 3c diabetic
