The question about alcohol is NO, none at all, even the slightest will set you off, it is a chance you are taking, I even steer clear of alcohol based mouth wash, I have had 13 attacks in two 1/2 years, so I am a bit of a career victim of thi I have too Chronic Pancreatitis, It is debilitating, the chances of it turning intio cancer are really slim unless you have psuedocysts etc. Unlike myself I have scarring of the tissue in the organ my chances are better than anyone with as little as one or two attacks of this. A low fat diet is a must, I was advised to stay with in aor below the range of 30 grams of fat per day, and nver to exceed 50, that would be puching it. Diet plays a MAJOR role in this disease for sure, and Alcohol will continue you to have attack after attack trust me. BTW I am a 31 YO male.

I am a 29 y/o female. My first attack of Acute necrotizing pancreatitis was when I was 24 and 34 weeks prego with my daughter. they took her emergency C-section and I went into multi system organ failure. I was in ICU for 2 weeks and then in the hospital for another 7 months that first year. I progressed into chronic pancreatitis and had "too many psuedocysts to count" at least that is what the CT scan report said. I've had 10 surgeries in the last 4 years. I finally had a total pancreatectomy and islet cell transplant. before that I was unable to get out of bed due to the severe chronic pain, and intractable vomiting. I was on IV feedings of TPN and on IV narcotics at home as well as IV phenergan for the nausea.
So now, 7 months after my total pancreatectomy and islet cell transplant everything is different. The pain is down to very manageable. The pain that I have left is just from scar tissue and adhesions. My narcotic use has been decreased 90% and I'm hoping to be able to taper it down to not using anything. I no longer vomit all the time and instead of throwing up 6-7 times a day it is now once a week... if that.
I am getting my life back. I can eat pretty much what I want, just in small amounts. I eat frequently, just very small meals. I am not diabetic. The islet cells from my pancreas are now in my liver and making insulin from there. They don't even know they aren't in the pancreas. I have to take digestive enzymes everytime I eat, but that's no big deal b/c I had to do that before the surgery anyways. The surgery was one huge miracle for me.
