Your mom will be in my good thoughts. I have known one person, an older friend, who had Pancreatitis once. I know it was a very painful condition for him, and he was not able to eat anything for close to a week while in the hospital, they did the nutrition in the IV. I don't know much what causes it or what treatments there are, I know his was caused by some bad reaction to some medicine, I think for his blood pressure. Maybe you can go to webMD site and find out more about it? I hope she will be feeling much better soon.
