Weight loss: is always of concern. If most of the weight loss was in the first 2 weeks around the surgery, and your weight has stabilized now it is Ok not to worry.

Not recommended.: Acute alcoholic pancreatitis is a very serious disease, which can even be fatal in many instances. The fact that you have recovered from your previous episode does not mean you are not at risk of developing it again, and a repeat episode could be worse. Although you might get away with it, the potential risks if you don't are so severe that I would recommend not drinking again. Good luck. ...Read more
