Hello. On Nov. 26 admitted to hosp for AP, was sent home 3 days later, Lipase levels, at 700 upon departure. . On Dec, 12, I was readmitted again with same thing, and my levels were over 500 when admitted. . Again, I had AP. Similar events, pain. They found sludge in my GB and I had GB removed this past Saturday.
I am not a drinker, and had no stones. The doctors felt it was the sludge causing issues, as they couldnt narrow it down to any other reason.
Is it possible my first bout never cleared up? Or it cleared up and I got sick again right away?
There is no history of pancreatitis in family, except my grandmother died from pancreatic cancer.
Just wondering if there is a chance that this could have been the start of Chronic Pancreatitis.
Any ideas or input would be welcome.
