    Todd, Sorry to hear about your pain levels. Keep positive and remember, you are strong!! You've got so much support externally as well as internally with the docs and staff.
    I make shakes with kale, fruits and grains. Really good. Could add yogurt, applesauce, sweet taters, pumpkin, spinich ect. I hope that gives you some ideas.
    You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers Todd!!
    Get mo betta!!!! :)

    Sorry that you're in some really bad pain. Must be exhausting, mind as well as body. Our thoughts have been with you since the word came that you went in with sever pain. Hope recovery is right around the corner.

    Liquid diet? Bummer. Don't have any suggestions other than protein power shake dry mix blended with banana, milk and a scoop of ice cream. Health food stores got the powder mix.

    Stay got prayers and good thoughts going every day from us.
  • Todd, its great to hear from you, we are all pulling for you, hang tough man & stay strong, hope to see you up and about soon, Marc & family

    Todd, I am so sorry to hear that you are suffering. You picked quite a painful ailment. OUCH! You will be in my thoughts and prayers. I hope they determine the etiolgy of your pancreatitis so that you heal soon.

    The praying won't stop. Get well friend!
  • Hang in there big guy!!!
    All the good vibes I can muster are heading S.E. from up here in the North Woods!
    If you can have dairy...Do smoothies with yogurt, ice and fruit or 100% fruit juices. And, shakes done with brewers yeast (I know that doesn’t even sound good, but it’s not really a bad taste and it’s good for you) and some favorite flavors will keep you fueled up.

    Get well soon. Know what you are going through. Hubby had pancreatitis several years ago. A gall stone lodged in his pancreatic duct. It finally resolved itself on it own after several days in the hospital. Several months later he had his gall bladder removed and has been fine since. Wishing you well.

    todd when i was oon a liquid diet a few years ago i pulled out the pressure cooker and made a chicken soup. the dr got a little irritated when i told him but after i told him how much i cooked it he said "well i did not think you had did all of that" so a chicken soup was good for my doc but i am not sure what yours would say.mine was not much of a soup more of a puree :whistle:

    i am in charleston and will be at the camp site all weekend so i will not be able to check the forum. but i will have my phone on so if i can help you let me know. i hope you are doing better ;)

    happy eggin
