My husband has pancreatitis attacks, and here lately, he's been in an almost continual one for 1 1/2 days. We are limiting his diet, but I'm not sure what else we can do for him. The pain is at fairly manageable levels, but he vomits, even when there's very little on his stomach. He can keep down oatmeal and applesauce, and very little else. Any ideas?View Thread
