pancreatitis

Because the vet gave us muscle relaxants and rimadahl to give for pain management, his pancreatitis flared up again. Now he is in the hospital on intravenous fluids and pain med injections. I just want to know anyone's thoughts on this? I really believe if he didn't have problems with his neck, the pancreatitis would have been controllable. But b/c of his "slipped disk" in his neck steroids is usually the treatment, but he can't have steroids b/c of the pancreatitis.
Turns out that all images were normal, but showed some accumulation of fluid in the abdomen. She gave him IV reglan and tested him for Parvo just in case, although he had been vaccinated..parvo was negative. She diagnosed him with having a mild case of gastroenteritis and prescribed him an antibiotic, another anti-nausea med, and a stool solidifier, as well as some cans of bland gastro intestinal dog food. I went to pick him up around 4:30 yesterday afternoon and he looked horrible.

Even with the problems I'm totally glad to be rid of that crummy GB, grateful not to have developed post-ERCP pancreatitis ( I had an awesome doctor in Dallas for the ERCP-thanks Dr.G!) Thanks for the grin-and stay away from oatmeal with Maple and Brown sugar-talk about pain!
