I'm hoping someone with experience with this can help me out here. My boyfriend went on travel to Spain about a month ago and with no prior warning, ended up with severe pain after only a few days of being in the country. He went to the hospital and spent 2 weeks there after being diagnosed with Pancreatitis. Admittedly, neither of us knew ANYTHING about this. I've done a ton of research and have essentially concluded that he will need to monitor his fat intake and stop drinking alcohol.
With that said - I'm wondering from those who have had this... have any of you had an attack and not had issues with food? I'm trying to determine if dietary changes are an absolute requirement for all or if it has varied for people. What are your triggers? Also - my boyfriend has never been one to drink regularly, but he does drink socially ever other weeks or so. When he drinks socially, I would say it's "binge" drinking, 3-5 hard liquor drinks at a time. Since he didn't have gallstones, I'm assuming this is what did him in.
It's become obvious to me that he cannot have hard liquor anymore, but what are peoples experiences with beer and wine? Specifically - once fully healed, would he be OK to have a single beer while mowing the lawn or a glass of wine with dinner a couple times a month or is any and all alcohol consumption an absolute no-no?
Thanks in advance for everyone's guidance and expertise! Just want to be informed so that I can do whatever I can to help him manage this with minimal difficulty.
