My husband got his band a year and a half ago (so did I) however he has reciently been diagnosed with chronic pancreatitis. Just wondering if there are any banded in the same situation? If so, how are you doing and how are you getting your nutrition in? I'd love to find a friend to help me out since I am the one who cooks and buys groceries in the house.

If nutrition is an issue for him I would have him get it removed. That diagnosis is nothing to play with. If he is drinking he better stop. I would be asking a doctor about his nutrition.

Hi Fifty,
It's a shame you assume he's a drinker. My husband has never been a drinker, not even the good ol college party days. You can google it if you like Mayo clinic has some great info if you are interested. Im offended, please educate yourself before assuming.

Pancreatitis has many causes
A number of causes have been identified for acute pancreatitis and chronic pancreatitis, including:

  • Alcoholism
  • Gallstones
  • Abdominal surgery
  • Certain medications
  • Cigarette smoking
  • Cystic fibrosis
  • Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP), when used to treat gallstones
  • Family history of pancreatitis
  • High calcium levels in the blood (hypercalcemia)
  • High levels of parathyroid hormone in the blood (hyperparathyroidism)
  • High triglyceride levels in the blood (hypertriglyceridemia)
  • Infection
  • Injury to the abdomen
  • Pancreatic cancer

Soexcited,
Your offended because you asked for advice and a person who answered your question said, "IF he is a drinker he should stop...". She did not ASSUME he was drinking, she said, "IF"... Then you tell her you to go to Mayo Clinic for information, which states Alcoholism (ie. drinking). can be a cause of Pancreatitis. Sounds like a educated guess to me. You asked for advice and gave a small amount of information about your husband, she is covering the bases that she thought might help you. Geez.

First of all I said IF meaning just what it says I didnt assume anything. As far as my education goes I have 30 years in healthcare and working with patients who have pancreatitis MOST have it due to alcoholism which is number one on your list. Secondly again IF I said not That he is drinking and needs to stop. So instead of asking questions like this in a forum you SHOULD go to a doctor not ask medical professionals who know about what your husband was diagnosed with. I am so sick of you people taking things I say out of context and making it what you want. If you dont want advice then dont ask. Educate yourself instead of copy and pasting what you think I should know because I far know more about medicine then most ever will. Next time call your lap band doctor and ask him what your husband should do. Have an awesome day.

Now I remember why I stopped posting here for so long. I reach out for help and wind up in some crazy battle. Who cares you said "IF" the point is that you both assumed the worse and its just not necesarry or right. Bummer.

And obviously we have seen a doctor, and cutting and pasting is just easier when you are in a hurry. Why even bother saying anything when you cant even answer the original quiestion. Fifty and Fab, you are way too full of yourself.

First of all again I did not assume anything. IF you saw a doctor then WHY ask a medical question when you ALREADY have an answer. I would think that if you need to copy and paste an answer it is not because you were in a hurry but BECAUSE you didnt know the answer either because IF you saw a doctor and IF he told you what to do YOU WOULDNT be coming here asking a medical question but some of you think somehow its easier than seeking medical help to get the answers you need. Secondly I am not full of my self so now you ARE ASSUMING. I in no way was being mean when I posted I told you what you needed to do and that was to go see a doctor. You can say whatever you want about me but arent you just as bad and full of yourself getting all defensive and being demeaning to two people you dont even know. That is the trouble with you oh holier then though people. You come to a forum ask for an opinion and when you dont hear what you want you bash the person answering your question so does that make you any better when you are assuming things of your own that are not true. Yeah most of you need to quit posting because you cant handle the truth and you think that everyone is saying everything to be mean when and if your question isnt answered the way you want it. Most of you need to quit bashing people for answering a question that now I remind you that you asked. You can not assume that the way it was answered was in anyway intended to hurt you, or think that your husband is drinking. If you dont want advice dont ask for it. You can not tell people how to post or what to write so I end this battle as you call it like this : If your husband has pancreatitis and has a lapband have the damn thing removed so that he can live a life of some normalcy without having some thing wrapped around his stomach making it worse because foods eaten can trigger it also. Next time you dont want a question answered then dont ask it.
