Vonnie - detailed info is in my bio info but to sum it all up in short -
The best things we found to help while she was having attacks was - heat for pain (along with liquid Lortab) - doing this we were able to treat her at home when it wasn’t as severe. I recommend rice packs and hot baths!!!
-Prevacid everyday because stomach acid can irritate the pancreas causing attacks
-we didn’t control diet ridiculously but cut out fried foods and we switched her from cows milk to goats milk and I’m not sure if it was coincidence or not but things started improving drastically when we switched that around too.
- Myrolax for constipation which was SEVERE!
But the thing that I believe (along with much prayer) was her stints. The first few didn’t do too much. But the last one was huge and was placed in with hopes to scar open the ducts and help her pancreas drain better. Her specialist kept telling me that he believed he could fix her without major surgery like her daddy. And here we are 2 years later pain free.
You know the one thing I have found out Vonnie is that nobody is the same and you have to experiment to find what works for you. But I have 2 people with stories that would bring you to your knees in tears if I got into them because it became so severe for both of them- but I have those same 2 people with SUCCESS STORIES to share with all of you in hopes that we can be of encouragement that there is hope and with God and good doctors, you will find them too!
Good luck to you! I’m always here if you need me -
