My 21year old son was just in the hospital 21/2 weeks ago for pancreatitis. He s really not much of a drinker st all but last night he decided he would have a couple beers and now he s having the same abdominal pain again. The doctors don t really have a cause for his pancreatitis but he was told that he can t drink but being 21 he didn t use good judgement and thought he would be fine since it wasn t very much. Do you think he needs to go back to the hospital again even though it wasn t very much or will it likely subside with a little bit of time.

Hi. My grandmother was diagnosed with advanced bowel, liver and pancreatic cancer about six weeks ago. She was in hospital for 3 weeks before being allowed to return home for palliative care. She had 2-3 doses of morphine whilst in hospital for the pain and has been able to manage on regular doses of weaker painkillers for the last few weeks. In the last 48 hours she has deteriorated rapidly, is unable to eat and is in a great deal of pain. She is cared for 24hrs a day by her daughters, and last night the district nurse was called out to administer morphine. She has been taking further doses every fours hours since. The macmillan nurses are visiting tomorrow with a view to putting her on a morphine drip. I realise that there is no crystal ball , but in your experience, how long do patients usually survive once the drip has been administered. Also, can the patient hear whils in the coma-like state? Many Thanks.

Nearly three years ago my husband was admitted to hospital several times for acute pancreatitis-AP.. Since then he has been living quiet a healthy lifestyle, has significantly reduced his alcohol intake to about one night out every 7 or 8 weeks. But recently he has been experiencing the same burning, raw soreness that he associates with AP especially in the morning. We think it may be due to changes for the worst in diet. Are there any foods that he should avoid to maintain pancreatic health? Thank you.
