    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    Yours in health,
    WebMD Message Boards Management

    Pancreatitis help?
    bettylb posted:
    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?

    hello, B --

    i think you may be more likely to get helpful responses if you post your inquiry in the digestive-disorders community,

    i hope your husband is better by now.
