Pancreatic necrosis is a severe test for every patient who has transferred it. In the course of the disease, patients often experience unbearable pain, undergo dialysis, drainage, administration of immunomodulators and various surgical interventions. All this and much more that doctors do in the process of treating patients, fighting for their lives, reducing the likelihood of a fatal outcome, has its consequences in the life of patients after discharge from the hospital. The severity of the consequences depends on many factors, such as:
- severity of pancreatic necrosis;
- number of complications;
- area affected by necrosis of the gland;
- type of treatment;
- scope and nature of surgical interventions.
In most cases, patients with pancreatic necrosis have a dorsal catheter to remove pain, put drainage tubes and perform an operation. This means that starting a new life the patient has to struggle not with such consequences of the disease as the death of a part of the body, but with the c
onsequences of treatment. And to get a favorable outcome of the disease to do best under the guidance of an experienced rehabilitologist.
Do not forget that often patients with pancreonecrosis lie in the intensive care unit or surgical department for 6 months or more. Such immobility leads to certain consequences of the muscular system, causing atrophy of the muscles, and as a result - the formation of flexion contractures of the lower limbs and the inability of muscles to withstand the weight of their own body. At this stage, we recommend massage, exercises to increase muscle elasticity, post-isometric relaxation, strength exercises, pressure chamber, dosed walking.
Having completed comprehensive rehabilitation after surgery and overcoming the consequences of an involuntary long lying position, patients will have to take care of the favorable outcome of the disease, completely reconsidering their lifestyle and diet.
During treatment, many patients lose weight due to strong body toxicity. If pancreatic necrosis was caused by overeating, weight loss can be up to 40-50 kg. After discharge, patients should exclude alcoholic beverages, fatty and fried foods. Eating after pancreatonecrosis often and gradually. There is another test, from the passage of which depends the outcome of the patient's life - a constant diet. Making up your diet only from not bitter, not salty, not fried, not fizzy, not sour and not spicy food, the patient has all chances for the maximum restoration of his full-fledged life. Otherwise, he will be expected to die soon.
How many live after pancreatonecrosis?
Mortality in pancreatic necrosis is quite high and reaches an average of 50 percent of the cases. This is especially true of destructive forms of the disease, which often occur with negative dynamics: the ailment progresses quite quickly, completely damaging the organ, progressing from a local disease to a total cycle of systemic consequences.
But still, not everything is so scary. Lethal outcome of the disease only gets in case of untimely consultation of a competent specialist who would have timely appointed a proper treatment based on modern innovative techniques.
Consequences of pancreatic necrosis of the pancreas
Patients after the treatment are completely immune from the consequences of the disease. Often, as a complication, patients develop diabetes mellitus, sudden bleeding occurs, because of the high intoxication of the body, many organs and systems suffer:
- hypotension, resulting from a large loss of fluid in the body, often leads to collapse, left ventricular function is depressed and kidneys;
- pulmonary complications range from arterial hypoxia and to acute respiratory distress syndrome;
- metabolic complications are characterized by hypocalcemia, hyperglycaemia;
- as a result of fat necrosis, a rash appears on the body resembling erythema nodosum;
- Puthersh's angiopathic retinopathy is characterized by sudden blindness;
- develop fistulas and cysts;
- , many patients require repeated surgical procedures.
Recovery( rehabilitation) after pancreatonecrosis
Patients who have undergone such a serious ailment are on dispensary registration at a polyclinic at their place of residence and once every six months they undergo a full medical examination including ultrasound, biochemical analyzes and other procedures.
A prerequisite in the recovery process after a previous illness is adherence to the strictest diet, which implies a fractional diet and completely eliminates overeating. The food should be boiled or cooked on steam, and it should not be not cold, not hot. Products should be in a very crushed or mashed form. Absolutely unacceptable alcohol, even in small quantities. Those who violate the regime live less.
The rehabilitation diet should be observed before the onset of a stable remission of the disease, after which it is possible to add other foods to the diet( in agreement with the attending physician).
Who survived the severe pancreatic necrosis?
With pancreatic necrosis, the percentage of survival is less than half the patients. Those who survived a severe illness should be very careful about their health, do not allow any excesses, and a strict diet should be respected until the end of life. But even if a person has survived, in most cases he becomes limited working, can completely lose the ability to work or become disabled.
