      Apple cider vinegar 1 teaspoon a day in 4 oz of water. I’ve got off of two stomach meds I’ve taken for over 20 years it really helps. Also to much soda is also a bad thing.

      A teaspoon of baking soda helps instantly. I don't know how long its gonna last but I feel so much better. Be careful when taking you will get choke. I suggest putting your 👅 to absorb

      For a month now I’ve tried something my naprapath told me to try. Apple cider vinegar. It’s not great to drink a teaspoon every day , but. I’ve got off of all my stomach meds one that I I’ve been in for over 20 years. At first it upset my stomach after I drank it. But if you drink like 4-5 oz of water it goes away quickly. It worked for me if you looked it up ACV helps a lot of things.

      Thank you, mine was a emergency because I had done turned jaundice and constantly throwing up and the pain was unbearable. They found stones in my bile ducts and the bile had stopped flowing. I am slowly learning why they did it and I am unaware of the long term affects of this procedure. After the stents was placed , they removed my gallbladder. But was very informative about things. I am scared because it has been over two weeks post opp and I can't keep anything down.

        @Unkie Yeah....it usually happens pretty fast. If you're still throwing up call your Dr. That seems a bit excessive. Are you on any anti-nausea meds? You also need to pay attention to how you feel after certain foods. It's different for everyone but an example is that I can no longer eat iceberg lettuce, cucumber, some beans and lentils, raw onion, or anything high fat without getting sick.

          @Saillea The Dr gave me a anti-nausea patch. But it isn't helping matters much. I haven't been able to lettuce since I was a kid due to my body doesn't digest it. So I have been eating crackers.

      I've had the stent placement procedure 10 times... because I'm allergic to the materials they're made of so I'm always admitted to the hospital for several days after so they can go back in and remove them once the pancreas drained. It always came back until the last one several years ago when my Dr made a small cut in the duct. That made it stay open better...so far. Just a small warning....if you have chronic pancreatitis don't EVER let any Dr talk you into getting a gastric bypass!! Afterwards, they're no longer able to stent the pancreas! I just wish someone had told me that. Thank God for Creon!!

      I had one placed in 2019 but it closed up soon after. I was told that I they would do another one if my symptoms returned.

      I just had one done a month ago and it was amazing. Life changing. Do you have a pseudocyst?

        @Alice_Marie I have had a pseudo cyst. It burst into my colon. Had a drainage tube in my belly for 6 weeks. Every day going to hospital for IV antibiotics it was preceded by my gallbladder full of stones then pancreatitis. I was told it was in my head an my brain just wanted mire pain meds by the ER doctors 4 times over a year an a half. They almost killed me , again. Love going to the ER.
