Hi, Angie from Minnesota. I had my first bout of Pancreatitis last week and thought I had the stomach flu! I'm 51. After a week of Bland diet, I started to feel better, had a big ole pizza and drinks the following Friday night ...still ok, by Monday I was sick as a dog again. So I went in to urgent care. My Lipase was 2250 and they said I had to go to the hospital for 1 to 3 days. Like everyone else, drs assumed i was a raging alcoholic. I do like to drink, but I'm a social drinker, nothing else. I was on the fasting diet and I think that had something to do with it. Plus I've been extremely stressed out and very dehydrated. I was out of the hospital in one day and back to Lipase of 188. Im now freaked out about having another one. I'm one day out of the hospital and actually feel just weak, not a lot of pain, not on pain meds and went back to work with kids in fact. What I'm worried about is my diarrhea and how long that will last. I'm urinating all the time, so thats good. I'm not going to drink for 6 months...or at least try. I can't belive that is the main cause. I have an autoimmune disorder, wonder if that has somthing to do with it. I also had a high fat diet. Now I will not be doing that, nor fasting or drinking. So happy I found this forum, I was in tears at the hospital and felt all alone. On another note, my sister said our mom also had it, and I forgot about that.
