I've had a bout, 6 wks., of a flare up of Pancreatitis/Gastroparesis--not sure which. One time in ER was Pancreatitis, second time a week later, Gastro. Any way I haven't been able to eat anything. I drink Ensure milkshakes with ice cream and protein milkshakes. I struggle to stay hydrated; I usually make 32 oz. Just nothing else will go down. The tests show gastro, but the places of pain show Pan. My GI has said there is nothing else he can do.I'm at a loss.

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. Gastroparesis needs supportive care with prokinetics, diet lifestyle adjustments, small frequent meals and antacids. Visit our IBS health center for further diet lifestyle education.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
