Hello Angie @angiede2001

Thank you so much for checking in and letting us know how you are doing. I certainly feel for you – this is a very hard situation for you to wait for an emergency and not be able to do anything to avert or delay it. I admire your courage and your determination “not to worry about it.” This seems to be the most reasonable approach you can take right now.

Remember we are here for you whenever you need to talk. Best wishes to you for a good Christmas and a wonderful 2018!

Hello @bertbiz

What great advice. It is important for us to all persist and get our questions answered! Thanks also for information about the diet you followed. I think that all of us with digestive tract disorders feel better with small meals and light foods. Both light in quantity and light in quality.

I’m glad that your service dog has “attitude.” Love your description of the “nose in the air.”

Hi Marie @mariemarie

I have never tried the patch. Perhaps someone of our other Members have.

Hi Abby, @amberpep

That sounds like a good plan. I understand what you mean about being directionally compromised. I call myself “directionally impaired and map skill deficient.” It covers the whole thing – I even leave extra time for getting lost when I’m going somewhere I’ve never been before – it really is frustrating at times, isn’t it?

Hello Tom @tomewilson

Thanks for bringing this change to our attention. I am not familiar with the Plummer Project. I’m going to invite one of our moderators, @lisalucier, to this conversation. Perhaps she can offer some more information.

Hello @fernandoparce. I see that this is your first post at Mayo Connect – welcome!

While I don’t have Mesenteric Panniculitis I’d like to introduce you to @vdouglas, a volunteer mentor here at Mayo Connect as well as @kanaazpereira, Mayo Connect moderator. In addition, there are many Members in this discussion group who will probably help you with your questions.

Here is a website from NIH that discusses this disorder, NORD also has an article about this rare disorder on their website,

If I may ask, has your doctor offered you any dietary guidelines to follow? Have you found any foods/drinks, and/or activities that tend to trigger your pain?

We look forward to supporting and encouraging you.
