From March 23 - April 14, I was at York Hospital (PA) was was fed thru left neck vein, and had saline solution in right neck vein, 4 antibiotic IVs in arms, for severe-acute pancreatitis (was in Oncology Wing as they initially thought it was cancer), and lost 134lbs (down from 265 to 131). Never went #2 the whole 23 days, so you’re right.

Then, 11 days in PSU-Hershey Hospital for a stomach bleed from stent thru stomach into grapefruit-sized cyst on pancreas, to drain large cyst on adjacent pancreas. 15 ERCP Endoscopy operations, 2 MRIs, 11 CT-Scans. Lost another 18lbs in Hershey. Never went #2 there either.

All I had was 4 cups of ice chips/day in both hospitals, in addition to nutrients, micro-nutrients in left neck vein, saline solution in right neck vein to bypass inflamed pancreas and stomach.

Too much info; sorry.

Wow. My wife in chemo for Pan Can, so she has a port. For all the crap they put in and take out, the port is a God’s send.

I am glad yours was “only” pancreatitis. No one should go down this road.
