Customer Question
Im on the backside...

Im on the backside of a bout of pacreatits and starting to be able to eat a little more. I've had bland food for about 6 days and feeling better. My question is, can I eat some popcorn from an air popper without expecting the painful cramps?

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you had the pain? What seems to make the pain better or worse?

About 8 days. Caffeine, carbonated drinks, meat (fatty), spicy foods (which I'm a huge fan of) make it painful. Water, Applesauce, pasta with very little on it, bananas are good ones

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

I'm a recovering Alcoholic, about 4 months out, no drinking for 6 weeks

Andy,

You may avoid popcorn for 4-5 days more. It may induce the pain as they have some fat in it.

Please feel free for your follow up questions.

I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.

Thanks for using Just Answer.

Besides pasta, baked potato, applesauce, bananas and water (which is all I’ve had for the last week) what are some other things that would be good to eat?
Doctor: Dr. Arun Phophalia, Doctor replied 8 months ago

Andy,

You can eat all fruits, vegetables, whole grain, lean meat and low fat diary.

Avoid greasy or fried fruits.

You need multivitamin and multimineral supplements.

Also your doctor may prescribe you pancreatic enzymes.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
