I have pain and abdominal bloating. It feels like someone has punched a hole from the front of my abdomen through to the back.
I have had all the tests (ct scan blood work) currently on ultrase mt 20 three with meals 3 times a day and 2 with snacks.
The feeling of being bloated until I can't breathe and pain in front and back is constant. I ate a small bowl of Smacks this morning with 1/2 cup of 1% milk and have felt soooo bloated and in pain. I have not eaten or drunk anything today since breakfast hoping this will rest my pancreas so the pain will stop, but this is now causing me a headache.
Does anyone out there have any advice for me? I am open to any suggestions that might alleviate the systems.

  • I have Chronic Pancreatitus too. As soon as I eat my stomach does the same thing. So I stopped all sugar and fat. I eat small meals every 4 hours. In the morning I eat oatmeal, and drink mango pinapple juice. In the pinapple juice is an enzyme that helps the pancreas. Then before lunch I eat Greek nonfat yogurt. For lunch I either eat no yolks eggs with one piece of toast, or a tuna sandwhich with fat free mayo. Dinner I am still figuring out, but today I ate a turkey burger. If you want to eat cereal try soy milk and special k, not that bad. I also take pancreatic enzymes, because my doctor said my pancreas won't make them anymore. They help a little, and I take prevacid in the morning for stomach acid. My problem is not throwing up, but having the runs. I only weigh 105, am trying to keep food in to gain weight. I know your pain. You should talk to your doctor about enzymes if you need them, and stay away from all sugars, white bread, milk, fast food etc. It does help. I also saw a nutritionist which helped alot. Changing my diet is hard, I love my junk food, but I have noticed a change in my stomach. I hope this helps you. Take care, and hang in there!!!!
