I would like to know few questions.When was it she had last episode? What was her last Serum Amilase and Lipase level?
Yes,taking Tramadol will definitely help.Regarding diet i will advice her to avoid Fatty and spicy Foods.Try to eat food that is high in carbohydrates and proteins as they reduce the work pressure of your pancreas.Do not eat large meals at a time. Rather go for small frequent meals.Quit alcohol and nicotine if you take.Caffeine and gas-forming food items stimulate pancreas. So avoid these type of foods.Green leafy vegetables are also very good for pancreatitis.Drink plenty of fluids in the form of soups and juices.
Wish you best of Health.
