My wife Sharon, suffered severe acute pancreatitis 5 years ago. She ended up spending 2 months in Hospital. Dr. said my wife should try to get up there because she probably wasn't going to make it. Sharon was on IV fluids, antibiotics, pain meds, nutritional supplements, insulin and much more. Everything was through IV and shots only. She had to have a PICC line put in, tons of blood work, CAT scans, MRI's, ultrasounds, scopes and multiple tests. Sharon chose not to have surgery, thank God and finally started to recover enough to go home. In the past 2 months sharon have been really sick and have been in and out of hospitals 6 times as of now. Basically just to be sent home each time for it to only continue to get worse. Then she started having heart palpitations, flu like symptoms, fatigue, trouble walking, headaches, nausea, blurred vision, vomiting blood, diarrhea, aches and pains in her lower abdomen along with lower back pain. The pain became so unbearable she was taken by ambulance to the hospital and admitted for a week. They said she was at death's door when she arrived. Her acute pancreatitis had returned. They put her on IV fluids and pain meds and went through the same routine as her 1st hospital stay 5 years ago. But this Hospital stay/treatment had her one step forward and three steps back. She was discharged with no new answers. They said Sharon was healed up enough to go home (which she wasn't) and only given a prescription for Lomotil. Sharon still really sick, have trouble walking, weak and frustrated. This condition is debilitating and she haven't been able to return to work or much of her normal life and Sharon's usually a very active person. There's been days and weeks during this journey that Sharon felt certain that she would die or at best never be the same. She still have an appointment with the GI specialist to have some more test done. In the meantime, Sharon started researching and She's doing everything she can to help heal this. She try to just eat small, Bland, low-fat meals, drink only water and Gatorades, no diary and take supplements. Sharon had no luck with Medical and not being able to work has been really hard and we are now struggling to pay my bills. This is truly our last option for help.
Every pennies counts!
