Pats, make sure they check for autoimmune pancreatitis. It's something that's 'on the rise,' but many docs don't seem to think to test for it. In addition, make sure your gallbladder is checked out. When the GB starts having problems it can take the 'pancreas down' and cause symptoms the doc attribute only to the pancreas.
Before starting to think the worst, make sure you rule out other issues. And make sure you stick to a diet that 'agrees' with the guidelines of trying to handle pancreatitis. It can take a heck of a long time to start to feel decent.
With pancreatic cancer symptoms, there normally are very, very few until the cancer is well-advanced.
