Hi , I was admitted to hospital with pancreatis caused by gallstones.

Is there any advice you can give to stop it happening again and help with the pain.

    Very low fat diet, or no fat. Write a diary of what triggers it and it should settle down.

    Pain killers that you can take as everyone is different.

    I had a touch of that and it settled down after having my gall bladder removed in December.

    Took a couple of weeks for it to settle but i still eat low fat and am a bit of a wimp at introducing new foods but i am pain free now so can live with it.

    You could always ask your pharmacist what they would recommend xx

    Hi there i know how you feel i also have gallstones and have been in hospital twice they thought i had pancreatis but luckily i didnt but they think some stones might be stuck in a bile duct and my liver is now playing up. Did they not give you anything for the pain when you came out of hospital? And are they going to do anything about your gallstones? im waiting to have my gallbladder out due to this. If you feel its getting worse i would go back to your doctors and see if they can help with the pain etc. I hope this helped abit and hope you get things sorted keep us updated from carmella.

    Are you on the list to get your gallbladder out? The list can be very long unfortunately. Sticking to a VERY LOW FAT DIET will help but there are no guarantees. When I say low fat I mean less than 3% in everything which is extremely difficult but it helps. This is because when you eat fat, your gallbladder releases bile and that's when you are likely to dislodge stones which can get stuck in the bile duct. I had my gallbladder out last may. Best thing I ever did. I appear to have no side effects at all and feel better than I had done in years. Best of luck to you.

    You need to have the surgery. Pancreatitis can be very dangerous.

    In the meantime eat healthy. No fried foods. Don't eat at night!
