i dont understand,,,he has in enlarged mancreas,and hi lipase levels,and you say its not pancreatitis?
not to mention he was a heavy drinker......common
im sorry but theres only 2 things it could be,,,his liver or his pancreas.
and if his is enlarged and his levels are hi,,,,its pancreatitis.....and by now its prob. acute,working on chronic.
he needs to WATCH WHAT HE EATS......no red meat, no cheese,eggs,stuff like that.
now hes not drinking.....DONT DRINK AGAIN!
if things precist,might have to get on some enzyme theropy to help in food digestion,and let his pancreas have some rest.
.......just remember pancreatitis is a progressive thing most the time,and taking away what triggers it will help..and MEDS...pain meds are truly needed to take away the pain for a better quality of life.
I have a similiar situation-mine has been inflammed since Feb. My dad died of pancancer so I am VERY scared. My ca 19 has been up too. However, all scans clear--but I know it can miss PC.
Have you gotten any feedback?
