Folks, I need your feedback please. I love my husband and care deeply about him. He was diagnosed with CP in 2011. Back then, he had multiple stays in the hospital during the more severe attacks. As expected, the hospital just gave him pain meds and fluids…and he would eventually feel good enough to go home. As time went on, he decided to self-treat in order to save money. So when an attack came, he’d suffer through it on our couch. Although dangerous, this has actually been working for him.
During his last hospital stay years ago, the internist in the ER said that along with cysts, he was approaching the stage that would require surgery…like the Whipple procedure. So his pancreas is not is great shape. He’s also dropped from 175 to 130 pounds, and can’t seem to gain any of that back.
He’s been taking ZenPep since August 2014 and it has stopped the daily vomiting. He eats almost anything he wants – fats, meats, sugar, etc. He smokes and is an alcoholic who has not stopped drinking. This is where I need your input…he drinks daily, sometimes multiple drunks per day, but rarely has attacks. I’m not complaining, but how can this be??
