Food to avoid

What foods do others find trigger pancreatic pain?

DH finds the worst food to be camembert/brie as it sets off severe pain within about 10 minute

Hot chips are no good and yet he is able to eat doner kebab and icecream without ill effect.

So it's not as simple as avoiding fats or dairy!

    You list a range of very high fat foods that you shouldn't eat with pancreatitis and then go on to say "So it's not as simple as avoiding fats or dairy".

    Are you having a laugh?

      No I'm serious...there is nothing consistant with what he can or can't eat that is why I mention some fatty foods he can eat and others he can't.

      Wanting to know if others have experienced the same.

      Mostly he eats only fruit, yogurt, coconuts, macadamias...but when he's travelling he eats whatever he eats and sometimes it has a bad effect and sometimes it doesn't.

      ​Not laughing at all

      I have chronic panretits and gastritis I'm 31 years old when I first caught thus disease I was on the verge of dying, I weighed 175 and dropped down to 140 within 3 days, I have eight kids ten in the family, I have a strong belief in the lord, I spent almost a whole year in our apartment in severe pain i would have a hard time breathing and on a couple occasions I felt as if I was having a heart attack, the pain that I have now is not as severe as it since I was first diagnosed with the disease, I eat regular foods some do make my stomach hurt more than others but the only thing that cured me from the extreme pain was the messiah himself, my pastor came to my apartment and we had a one on one prayer and he explained to me what was going to happens and what I was going to feel in my abdominal area and I kidd u not ever since than the pain has decreased. I ask that my messiah heal your significant other from this horrible disease and cure this illness look unto the father.Be blessed. Michael arcangel.

    avoid all high fat foods especially cheeses. you need ti ve on 5 per cent fat per 100g and for naughty treats 12 per cent per 100g. on meats again low fat and cook in water and a little olive oil helps remove fats. thing like eggs and quorn can set of bouts of pain. low fat is the only way to reduce pains. you will normally have discomfort after eating. you need to eat small meals four times a day and no bigger than a small side plate or childs portion as this allows the pancreas to process smaller quantities with less work causing less pain. try it and you will see the bigger the meal the longer the pain after.

      Still yet to get a diagnosis on the pancreatitis...so this also creates some guess work.

      Like I said he can eat doner kebabs without any pain even though they are one of the highest in fats!

      I don't know if pancreatic cancer is less consistant in what foods cause pain because pancreatitis seems to be very consistant in fats causing pain.

    I have pancreatitis and my average daily fat intake is 30grm, a third of recommended. If he has pancreatitis then take away foods are out of bounds otherwise his life will be a misery. Anything with oil in it is fat and that includes coconuts.Pancreatitis cane be difficult to diagnose but he needs to get a proper diagnosis.

    If the doctors suspect pancreatitis then it is better if he is referred to a specialist pancreas hospital for a proper diagnosis. Until he is given the all clear regarding pancreatitis then he must avoid all alcohol.

    I have idiopathic acute pancreatitis and  believe me and others when we say you or he will know the type if pains you get. The attacks them selves are medical recorded as worse than labour pains. And the daily pain after and sudden bouts are annoying and painful to the point you just want to cut it out.

    if you suspect then do everything to prevent a full blown attack. because that is the last thing he will want and remember it KILLS.

      I am amazed how little this is researched and I am sure that people who haven't had just look and think it can't be that bad. 

      but we are the only people who know how it feels but you can't describe it.  

      I saw a part from last week who said why don't I eat when I am in pain. I ended up by walking out saying go make me fk laugh and put down I go out drinking like your fkin colleague did. then I will report you to cause if I drink it would be a wooden box or hospital lol. doesn't it frustrate you when people ask you t describe everyday pain and how regular you have attackss and you reply its random at anytime with no pattern. what is so hard to understand.

      It is very frustrating because at times I don't look sick but the pain is unbearable. I find myself avoiding certain people because I know I am sick, I don't need you prying at me like you are a doctor. I especially like it when they talk to me as if they were a doctor....Not 😜

      HastagPancreatitisProblems....lol

      I always tell I would quite happily take a knife and cut the bloody thing out.  and they look at you like you are a nutter.  I always ask them what qualifications they have and knowledge they have of the disease.

      then wipe the smug fxxckers faces when I tell them how the pancreas enzymes have damaged my lung. then you get the look and I reply you need to speak to my consultant then you may actually understand the disease.  lol

      In July when accute pancreatitis hit, In the hospital, I screamed the first 2 day from pain.  I got 1 unit of Dillaud IV every 4 hrs.!  Might as well have been an aspirin.  I was begging them to kill me or put me out.  I couldn't stand it.  They cangen my dillaudid to every 2 hrs. but no difference.  I was eventually senthome.  About 3 weeks I went back in.  Made sure I got a different hospital Dr.  He conferred with my pain Dr. (back injury) and they put me on 3 units of dilaudid every 2 hours., with my Hydrocodone every 4.  This pain wasn't as bad, so the drugs took the edge off.  My prblem is I have a very, very high tolerance to the pain drugs.  They can't give me a larger dose without stopping my respiration.  I hate this disease!.

      I have been through a lot of hospital and doctor trips. After severt months in the hospital in Indy, they recommended a pain pump so in 2010 i had a pain pump implanted in my stomach and it does help with the overall pain, but I still have episodes that I have to be hospitalized for. I have the best pain management doctor who has seriously saved my life. The pain pump has dilaudid and it works better than all of the oral medicine I was on before the implant.
