    DeAnna, I'm now in the same situation as you. I had an attack a couple of weeks ago... You're right about the pain.. Ouch.

    I really hope you're doing well with this and haven't had any further problems. I'm just getting started and there's so much conflicting info on the web I haven't been able to sort it out yet. I haven't had a bowl of ice cream in 2 weeks, a record! I've lost 6 pounds but it seems it comes off in the wrong places. :)

    Oh ... that stinks! Haven't had any further problems. I went to a gastro doctor after the emgcy room visit and he said my amalyse was only slightly elevated, so it was mild.

    I haven't eaten anything greasy/fried/no cheese, saturated fats. No processed foods either. I've had some dairy - mostly fat-free half & half for my coffee, and zero fat greek yogurt. Have had chicken breast and seafood with no problems.

    Glad it was not serious!

    My son had a bout of this a couple of years ago, 2 ER visits, hospitalized for about a week, they ran every test, but never could figure out what was causing it. So he up and left the hospital early and has been pretty good since.

    Our theory is that it was caused by the Prisolec he was taking for Acid reflux. But who knows.

    Thanks DeAnna, that's about what I'm doing. I'm eating a lot more fruit for sure. A few of the things, like cheese or milk, I've been cutting down on how much I eat in any one day. If I have a glass of milk I won't eat any other fat that day.. I'm doing much better.

    Thanks again.

    While I never had been a lot overweight, I have lost 10 lbs, from 180 to 170, in the 6 weeks after my bout with pancreatitis. I've done this by largely cutting out the junk food in my diet...
    no burgers, fried food, milk shakes, chips, chocolate, cookies, soft drinks, jerky, all the junkola at the office, etc.

    90% of my fluid intake is water.... I have a small glass of milk with dinner, an occasional Gatorade, cup of coffee but that's it. Lots of fruit, fish, vegetables, rice, nuts, granola, yogurt.. I still eat some stuff they tell you not to, but I've cut it way down... I eat red meat/pork chop but now maybe only once a week, some cheese, ice cream probably had a LOT to do with this. I'm a Dryers Rocky Road junkie, but instead of eating it every night, I'm down to a couple times a week.

    I mean, what else is there but ice cream and golf?? I don't smoke, do drugs, drink or chase girls anymore... BORING :D

    Glad I’m not the only who has expierenced this. Had some pretty bad stomach pain a week ago Friday. Lasted through the weekend. Went to Urgent Care after work the following Monday and they did some blood work. My lipase levels were through the roof. Doctor called me while I was sleeping to let me know to go in first thing next morning for an Ultrasound.

    Had the ultrasound which came back clear. They then sent me to the ER for a CT scan. At this point, the pain was just some faint soreness. Had the CT scan, came back clear. ER doc diagnosed me with acute pancreatitis. I have an appointment next Friday with a gastroenterologist for follow up. No one knows what caused it. I have maybe a beer a week while BBqing, I drink tea instead of coffee, it’s really strange. Been trying to adhere to a low fat diet in the past week.

    Ice cream is not boring! Ice cream and Netflix is my weekly party on Sunday nights!
