Pancreatic Divisum Diet Suggestions??!
I was just diagnosed with Pancreatic Divisum. I'm a 44 year old female and after two bouts of pancreatitis, I now feel I'm in a world of unknowns of what to eat to keep this from happening again. For how "common" this condition supposively is, I am finding it difficult locating any suggestions on what to eat. Sure, low-fat, low-protein, alcohol in moderation..but what does that mean? I have found a GI doctor but can't get an appt for 4 weeks (was just released from the hospital this past Sunday). Does anyone have any recommendations on this? Is alcohol totally out of the question? My pancreatitis hit so suddenly that I am a bit fearful now of what has triggered this after 44 years of being just fine. Any help would be greatly appreaciated. THANK YOU!

They are so expensive that I could be the cat-lady and be eating Meow-Mix so I could afford my medication and I still...

I had to have a lung biopsy, and I have cancer. A very rare form that doesn't have any standard treatment. There just isn't a lot of case history for this. It is epithelioid hemangio endothelioma. The cancer support group doesn't talk every day. I can understand why. I'm waiting for the oncologist to call back for an appointment, and will hear in the next few days. Who knew. Ha!
It's so hard dealing with pain especially when you don't get any support from the person who your supposed to be closest to. So hard when your trying to deal with pain and that person treats you worse than the pain. Having hard time understanding why. unless you are having a good Day you are treated like crap and they make you feel worthless.
