I am looking to contact other people living with chronic pancreatitis. I am always trying to find new and better ways of improving the quality of my life with the least amount of medical/pharmaceutical intervention. Is there anyone else who has this and can share what they do to cope with this (at times) very debilitating chronic problem?

1.get on the most digestive enzyes you can get on to allow the pancreas to rest as much as possible.
2.have any calcified areas removed,there dead anyway,and will continue to cause pain and possible infection.
3.find a good doc that is not afraid to prescribe the best pain meds available to you!!!

4.get with a neutricianist if possible and find out what you can and cannot eat.
5.avoid all stressfull siutations and practice calming/relaxing technics.
