sounds like your acute pancreatitis is now what you would call CHRONIC pancreatis...this does not go away,,all you can do is manage it with pain meds,and diet,,,,,docs will keep you comming back to make the money,,,if they simply told you the probable truth,you would have no reason to come see them anymore
Hi, I've had many similar episodes since August 2008. It started out with gallstones and the removal of my gallbladder. Then, I kept having elevated amylase and lipase levels, which required hospitalization for pain meds, fluids, and iv nutrition many times. In my case, when my lipase and amylase levels started to return to normal, I wasn't better like the drs said I should be...I still had really bad pain and if I would try eating or drinking too soon it would flare things up all over again. I couldn't have any fancy tests done because I had gastric bypass. I was finally diagnosed with chronic pancreatitis July 2010. Please contact reply and let me know what you've found out!
