Thanks, Cindy. I appreciate your answer! I do not have diabetes or my gall bladder so it was just strange that is all happened so suddenly. I'm researching diets. I usually eat healthy according to the gastric bypass rules and the rules of my pouch. It usually tells me what I'm having problems with. I got sick last Friday and had to go to the emergency room. They kept me 5 days to make sure the numbers were improving and going down before they let me go home. I changed doctors to make sure I can see the one I saw in the hospital. I liked her and want to make sure I get checked out thoroughly.

I appreciate your help and will continue to do some more reading on it. Thanks for the advice.

Pancreatitis is serious and you need to be under the care of a specialist. Did or do you have diabetes? If so that is probably the cause of the problem. From the research I have done on pancreatitiis (I have friends who have had this and since I have diabetes I make it a point to learn about potential complications so I can be on the watch for them) the current belief seems to lean toward an infection that somehow gets into the pancreas and triggers the reaction that causes pancreatitis. Diabetes just make things more difficult as it kind of wears out the pancreas. I know people who developed Type 1 diabetes after pancreatitis and one even had to have a pancreas + kidney transplant. So take good care of yourself. Make sure your doctors are keeping close watch on your liver function. webmd has some information on pancreatitis.

As for my problems after surgery: RNY 9-10-10
1) had problems swallowing due to some scarring in my throat from RNY surgery. That was taken care of with a throat dilation during my endoscopy New Years Eve last year.
2) This Fall I had what the GI doc thinks was a residual diabetes complication where the nerves that stimulate constractions in the large bowel (colon) became somewhat paralized and so nothing was moving through my large intestine. Colonoscopy was how they determined this and I am now on medication and a low fiber diet to help this condition.
3) I am lactose intolerant and have a large number of food intolerances many more than prior to RNY.
4) blood work showed some vitamins too high so we are working to get those down to normal.
other than this I have not had any complications.

I hope this helps but the best advice is to call your doctor or the specialist they sent you to. If you were not sent to a specialist then you need to contact your doctor and get a referal. Pancreatitis is something that you want to see a specialist to get treated.

Sorry, but have had no such issues. My surgery was Jan 2010. Hope you get well and that it doesn't recur. :)

I just got out from the hospital from a bout with pancreatitis. My liver enzymes were really high also. Took 5 days to get things calmed down. my question is this. What issues have any of you had since your gastric bypass surgeries. I had mine in August of 2010. I have lost a total of 110 pounds. I was fine one day; sick the next. I guess I'm just trying to research to find out what caused this since i have done nothing out of the ordinary and have no gall bladder either.
i just need some input. I do not want this to happen again. Have any of you had problems like this? Did you get over it? Did it happen again?
