How long does it take to recover from pancreatitis My

Customer Question

How long does it take to recover from pancreatitis? My daughter is 22 and diagnosed 4 weeks ago. Also, had her gall bladder removed at that time along with nonspecific hepatits. She is still in alot of pain and can't eat. Is this normal?

Yes....it can sometimes take up to six weeks to recovery from pancreatitis. If she is allowed to eat, I would stick with a bland diet until the pain subsides.
