Hi guys, I've been stuck in a hospital since Sunday afternoon with acute pancreatitis. The doctors are unsure what caused it as I don't drink much or often, but I believe it's from issues with anorexia. I've been getting IV fluids and have had an ultrasound and x ray, and now feel almost back to normal. Eating is not painful, nausea is gone, even the diarrhea has improved significantly. My issue is that my lipase keeps rising, but the doctors have not tried any other tests to figure out why and are keeping me on a clear fluid diet because of it. I'm starving and it doesn't help the pain and nausea, which goes away with food. I guess I'm wondering if this is normal or if they should be trying to figure out why it keeps going up-they seem confused and unsure of what the problem is but have not done further tests. I feel basically ready to go home at this point, the continuously rising lipase is my only problem and I'm feeling very neglected.
