    Wotcha... soz not been posting for a bit... been a bit poorly... :sigh:

    A few weeks ago had my first pancreatic attack. :eek:

    Basically I was watching Top Gear on Sunday night & had a sudden & violent need to be sick... after clearing my stomach I was still dry heaving & my stomach was in absolute bits... I couldn't stand up, couldn't lie down, couldn't sit down... I thought I had strained my stomach muscles from heaving with food poisoning & having no pain killers in the house took a large slug of JD as a muscle relaxant & to help me sleep.... BAAAAAAAD move

    My stomach went into proper spazz-mode & I had pain like I had never felt before...

    I eventually called a taxi to take me to A&E (still thinking it was food poisoning) & basically hyper-ventilated & near on collapsed in the cab... he still charged me mind

    I collapsed on entry to A&E & queue-jumped everyone there They took me straight through & took some blood tests & then gave me morphine (1st time I had it - instant relief !)... once stabilised they dripped me up & took me through to a ward.

    I had a full complement of medical students with the doctor the next morning... I think everyone wanted to see the fool with pancreatitis who took alcohol to stop the pain

    My Amalyse reading was 3015 (my sister who's a nurse was impressed with that !).

    Because of the alcohol in my blood tests they wrote 'alcohol abuse' all over my file Not true.... I had lost 5 stone earlier this year doing LT... before that I'll admit I was a binger (basically no drink for months & then weekend benders when catching up with friends).

    I had a ultra-sound scan & a gallstone was found (apparently they can be common from VLC diets) but it was in the gall bladder.... so the right place for it...

    I still have no idea what brought on my attack... I was released a few days later with a family sized pack of 30/500 co-codamal & a few weeks later my tummy still hurts (tender & sore... like knotted).

    I've been told I've got to follow a low fat / low protien diet which is the exact opposite of the diet I was following after re-feeding from LT... ie high protien, low carbs...

    I'm obviously not drinking (merry christmas !!) & been told not to drink again :eek::eek::eek:

    So without wishing to alarm anyone - be careful / aware of stomach pains... ! I'm not blaming LT - far from it - I can't sing it's praises too highly... just be aware.

    I had a friend who suffered like you. She lost a lot of weight with WW. I think the change in diet started her stones off.
    Previously while she was overweight and had an attack she thought it was her back so went to see her chiropractor, spent lots of money with him and in the end it wasnt her back!
    Because she had lost so much weight her operation was done key hole so minimal scarring, but she did say that shes never felt pain like it!
    You must feel very confused about what to do next diet wise?
    I'm back on lipotrim 27/12/08. All the best with your recovery my friend now eats and drinks normally just take it easy.XX

    Cheers all for the kind words (inc Cah-Ching... lol I think !) :)

    Still tender & sore & more to the point - sober (boo !).

    Will be looking into getting my gallbladder removed in 09, I was pretty lucky... 10% of Pancreatitis attacks are fatal & my Amalyse levels were 40 times that of their normal level (even with a Pancreatic attack they only usually get 4 times the normal level... so I was lucky to get medical help when I did !).

    It's going to be a complete lifestyle change for me (I've led a hedonistic bachelor lifestyle for a long time) but I'm looking to start sky diving in the new year to get my kicks/rush instead.

    Even though I won't be on LT I'll still hang around minimins like a bad smell :)
