So is juicing fresh fruits and veggies an option at this point? If you had a juicer, you could be smashing veggies into juices and drinking some food. Would that be too nutrient dense for you right now?

HEY!

So I did end up back in hospital but for different reasons than my diet - they suspected I had a bit of bleed and potential recurrence of the pancreatitis but my levels were normal. Which, was very good. However, I still had a burning pain which was probably just because it was somewhat aggravated despite the normal levels.

As for the bleed it turned out to be nothing more than a nuisance than anything else. Which was okay.

As for my site they reverted me off full liquids to clears again but started me on fulls before I left the hospital today - Hoping to move to solids soon and use my fixed metabolic rate to lose the excess weight AND to use this as a springboard to implement healthy patterns right from the start.

Hey!

So I've been getting out of the house and being busy. I did notice I was super dizzy today and luckily I had an appointment with my doctor...he put me on a soft low fat diet. So things are slowly getting better. I calculated my calories today and I've consumed 800. Its low but its better than the 500/600 I consumed yesterday.

Coach Nancy thanks for your insight. It was really helpful!

Can you get out of the house?? You need to keep your fingers and your mind busy.

Keep on keeping on and also remember the messages here...everyone means well and if you get sick again, you know just how serious it can be. We'll be worrying

Hi,

Be strong and know that this is just a temporary deal so you do not end up back at the hospital. As a former RN, I can tell you pancreatitis is a very serious illness. While I am not trying to scare you, many people who have been diagnosed with this disease have ended up in the ICU for days on end. It's not something to take lightly-- there is no room for cheating per your doctor's advice.

Please take care of yourself.

Coach Nancy

Okay - So I know it sounds totally unhealthy but I just had surgery and got pancreatitis so, my DR put me on a liquid diet from Saturday till this upcoming Monday. I was actually on IV fluids from Saturday - Tuesday and then from Tuesday - Today I've been on clears and now I'm just starting to transition to full liquids.

The thing is I'm super hungry and eating solids could mean something as disastrous as going back to the ER for a reoccurance of Pancreatitis. I did cheat a little bit with nonfat hot chocolate but it didn't make me sick...so I thought that was good.

I'm just worried that tomorrow I will go nutto and want to eat everything in sight and I know that'll make me SO sick.

SO besides the idea that I'll get sick if I eat - how else can I stay motivated? My SparkCoach had some great suggestions like "talking to friends" "keeping busy" "bath taking" "nail painting" and a whole bunch of other things but - I am looking for community support.

xxx,
