Hi Everyone, Ijust had my first AP episode (idiopathic) about 3 weeks ago and still very ill. Doctors (in California) think I should be okay now but I"m not. I still get naseaous every day and hate to eat. I'm overweight and had a terrible diet to begin with, but never drank (I have two alcoholics in my family and I'm the teatotaller). I just turned 50,I started at 218 pounds (15.5 stone) and only lost 10 pounds in three weeks. I take anti-nasea meds daily, enzymes and chinese herbs for reducing inflamation and reducing the possibiliyt of PanCan. Here's the history and questions.
HX: Gallstones in GB, but it was not swollen and there were no signs of the bile duct blocked or swollen. Mild fatty liver. TERRIBLE pain for 2 days, like someone was cutting me open with a hot, sharp knife from left to right. Black streaks on my tongue and grey pebble-like BMs. I was in hospital for 3 days and given 15 litres of fluid. I was so puffy! CT scan showed only swollen pancrease and happy GB and liver. Ultrasound showed stones in GB (they've been there for years). They assumed it was my gallstones causing AP, however it was not. I refused to let them remove my GB as ti was not the problem. I don't know the name of it, but I had a test done where they run radioactive dye through you to see if it is flowing smoothly from the pancrease and GB, through the ducts and it was fine. So, Idiopathic A.P.
1)I was in an auto acciden two years ago which triggered a gallbladder attack, could that have cause this?
2) What can I eat? Please tell me what foods I can eat. Just saying low fat diet doesn't explain things clearly enough. I have a lot of food allergies, especially to dairy.
4) What's this about chocolate and peanut butter?!?! Please explain.
5) Are bananas okay?
7)Anyone else trying alterntive treatments such as Oriental/Chinese Medicine?
8) I am taking time off of work at the moment due to an antidepressant I have been on for 20 years suddenly stopped working. I need time to taper off of that and get stabilized on a new one. Would that cause this problem?
