I thought I had heartburn for a few days, and it turns out it was much worse. I had acute pancreatitis, and that caused me to win a three-day stay at Fairview Southdale Hospital. They don't know what caused it, but I had a swollen pancreas, an infection, and they think a gall or kidney stone may have passed through the head of the pancreas.
For three days, when I was finally able to eat or drink, it was nothing but liquids. Sounds like it will be a low-fat/low salt diet for at least six weeks.
Losing 30 pounds in a matter of two weeks was great, but not really doing it this way. However, now that it's off, I hope to keep some, if not most, of it off!
