Looking for a bit of adivse/share my experiences with people.
In October I was rushed to hosptial where I found out I had acute pancreatitis from too much alcohol.
I was a heavy drinker from the age of 18 and I'm now 25. I was kept in hosptial for 6 days.
I was advised by one doctor to never a drink again where as most others suggested not to drink for 6 months.
I thought I new better than the doctors and had a couple of drinks at the weekend a month after getting out of hospital. This was a bad mistake.
On the Sunday evening it started with a stomach ache which lead to diarrhoea and being sick all night and was in a lot of pain throughout the night. The pain died down the next day and I stopped being sick so didn't go back to hospital.
I learnt from my lesson and have pretty much stayed away from alcohol up in until the last couple of weeks. I have had the odd shandy on the occasional evening and have been fine.
Those who are unsure about whether smoking has an affect- I have taken up smoking weed in the last month or so which has helped with craving having a beer,especially at my age where all of my mates like a good drink. I have had no problems with my pancreas since smoking weed.
Has anyone started drinking again more regularly since being diagnosed with acute pancreatitis and if so how have you been?
6 months is coming up for me in 3 weeks and I have a stag do mid May so want some suggestions on whether people think il be alright to drink over the weekend or not?
