Re: chronic Pancreatitis
I know this is an older thread but I hope to revivie it. People so often confuse chronic pancreatitis with acute pancreatitis and think that we will get over it some day and move on.
Chronic pancreatitis means just that. It is chronic forever.
I would like to read the good and bad that others with CP (chronic pancreatitis) go threw. My CP is said to only be mild at this point. It has been a source of much sickness in me for a long time but starting in fall of 2009 it began getting worse and worse with each month.
If I starve myself and eat as little as possible I feel less pain. There is very little I can eat that wont cause pain. Rice, veggies, popcycles and most fruits seem to work ok for me.
Meat, dairy, greasy foods, fake foods (processed to death foods with tons of preservitives, fake sugars (like aspertame) all make me hurt.
The weakness, bathroom issues, barfiness, pain and episodes of hot flashes are all things we with CP get to deal with.
I have both type 1 and type 2 diabets and CP is most likely the cause of that. Although the doc does not know that for sure since he hasnt done a gentic test to see if I have heriditary CP.
What have some of you with CP done to deal with it?
How do you manage?
Are you able to still get out to do stuff once in a while?
How/what do you eat?
Did Cp cause troubles in your pregnancies?
