Abscess in pancreas

Common Questions and Answers about Abscess in pancreas


Avatar f tn If you are having alot of pain in r side you should see a doctor. The pancreas, gallbladder, and common bile ducts can all present with pain, some nausea, vomiting, wt loss, ect. Good luck in finding a good doctor.
Avatar n tn Right side pain and tenderness should be investigated for appendicitis and appendicular abscess. It can also be a kidney abscess or a psoas muscle abscess. If the pain is higher up, it can a liver infection, gall stones, liver abscess or subdiaphragmatic (below the diaphragm) abscess. It is difficult to comment beyond this at this stage. Do discuss this with your doctor and get yourself examined. Hope this helps. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!
Avatar n tn My pug had surgery two years ago for abscess of the liver and pancreas. Since then she has had elevated liver enzymes which usually are reduced by a maintenance dose of S-Adenosyl 225 mg. per day. Her count over the last year hasbegun to elevate on this dosage, but when I (by mistake) gave her 225mg TWICE a day, the count went slightly below normal, which pleased the vet.
Avatar n tn An abscess under the diaphragm is often missed while doing a CT, hence ask your doctor about it. The other possibilities are acidity, pancreas involvement, a stone in the CBD that was missed. A high C-Reactive protein can be an indication of infection, inflammation, dental problem, arthritis, increased risk of heart problems, increased risk of cancers etc. A high C-Reactive protein should be evaluated ASAP.
649848 tn?1534637300 Sarah, I started losing my teeth when I was in my 20's - I was lucky enough to lose my 2 bottom front teeth to an abscess that resulted in a partial so I didn't have to run around with no front teeth; I've lost a few more over the years and had to get a different partial that the could add teeth to... I lost all my uppers when I was in my 40's and have had a denture of some type ever since. The only reason I'm putting all this out there is because I eat nuts of all kinds...
Avatar n tn The density in the pancreas can be a cyst, a lipoma, an abscess or a tumor. Depending upon the echogenicity, the borders and the shadows created a near correct diagnosis can be made with imaging studies. This is again correlated with blood tests. However, a confirmatory diagnosis is made with a biopsy. A biopsy facilitates a histologic study of cells, which gives you a definite diagnosis. So once you have the diagnosis you will know what measures or precautious you need to follow.
Avatar n tn Perhaps a brain abscess occurred secondary to a pancreatic abscess. I might have expected more neurologic dysfunction than just blindness in such a case however. Only pathologic analysis of the pancreatic masses and the brain could establish any linkage. Today MRI is sometimes used to evaluate the brain structure and any lesions in the skull. Unfortunately it is not available everywhere, requires general anesthesia and can be quite costly.
Avatar f tn Crohn’s disease, diverticulitis, infection in kidney, kidney stones, constipation, and an abscess in rectus abdominis muscle or psoas muscle can all cause lower right abdomen pain. An ultrasound or CT scan of abdomen is definitely required. Refer: http://www.abdopain.com/lower-right-abdominal-pain.html for the various causes of right lower abdomen pain. Hope this helps. I think you should discuss these possibilities with your doctor. It is difficult to comment beyond this without examining.

Avatar n tn This could be due to stomach (as in acidity, GERD), pancreas (pancreatitis), spleen (abscess or lump or enlarged spleen) or heart (heart attack). Pin getting referred to shoulder should be investigated for heart pathology. Also a pain radiating to the back could be due to pancreatitis. It could also be a pain of costochondritis. You will need to undergo CT scan, EKG, blood tests etc. to reach a diagnosis. It is difficult to comment beyond this at this stage. Lets see what your doctor says.
Avatar m tn I had my birthday on 25th Nov and ate many thing (cake, meat and rice cooked with too much oil) that day. Now, can someone help me get rid of this? Thanks in advance....
Avatar m tn Eating quickly, eating too hot or cold foods, swallowing air all can lead to irritation of the phrenic nerve and hiccups. Any abscess below the diaphragm, inflammation of the pancreas, hiatus hernia may cause belching or hiccups shortly after eating a meal. You may take 1 teaspoon lemon juice with 1/2 teaspoon baking soda in 1 cup cool water. Drink it quickly after meals. Ginger tea can help. Pour 1 cup boiling water over 1 teaspoon freshly grated gingerroot. Steep for 5 minutes, then drink.
Avatar m tn Other possibilities could be cholecystitis (inflammation of gall bladder), stones in gall bladder, abscess under the diaphragm (often missed by ultrasounds), liver problems or due to duodenal ulcer. If pain is slightly on the lower side then inflammatory bowel conditions, colitis etc should be ruled out. It can also be food intolerance, so log in what you eat and symptoms as they come and see if there is a correlation. If you had any surgery in past, then it can even be adhesions.
Avatar f tn The back and flank pain, if not pleuritic pain (from pleurisy associated with pneumonia) is worrisome for disease of organs in that part of your body; that is, your kidneys and pancreas. Was there a complete (not just the CT Scan) absence of evidence for recurrent pancreatitis; you may want to ask your doctor about that. And, have they looked to your kidneys as the main site of disease, conceivably with a perinephric abscess.
Avatar f tn I am 28 yrs old female. I have recurring upper left quadrant pain,radiating thru to under left shoulder blade that is moderate, but severe when I inhale or move a certain way. I also have a constant "ate too much" feeling, and occasionally( for lack of better description) a heartbeat in my stomach area just below where the pain is. I have had several test on the heart as well as GI.
Avatar n tn Why would he refer to inflammation in the second report rather than a diverticular abscess noted in the first - they are not the same? He doesn't seem to note anthing about the second cyst found in the first report (although he does point out liver cysts), but he does say, Resolving ovarian cyst is not exclued. What does that mean... I don't have any ovaries anymore? He couldn't be referring to the cystadenoma in October could he.
Avatar n tn As I have been on ppis before and since the op could this reduction in acid have affected my pancreas and hence a reduction in enzymes for digesting these foods. If I take digestive enzymes in tablet form, one specifically for dairy and another broad spectrum I can eat these foods. Or, could the fundo have caused these problems? Your comments would be appreciated as I am not getting much help from the medics here in the UK. Will I be able to eat these foods in the future?
2206935 tn?1373642205 Right upper abdominal and chest pain can be due to cholecystitis (inflammation of gall bladder), stones in gall bladder, abscess under the diaphragm, liver problems or due to duodenal ulcer. Right flank pain is generally due to kidney stones. Pain on right side of belly button can be chronic appendicitis, ir IBS or Crohn’s. Take Omeprazole empty stomach in morning and an antacid gel at bedtime. Refrain from smoking, alcohol, carbonated drinks and spicy food.

Avatar f tn Recently I suffered a bout of abdominal pain which was located in the middle at the bottom of my rib cage. There was a constant dull pain with waves of sharp pain that would come 2-3 times and hour (the sharp pain I would say was similar to labour pains). At the same time I had headache and constant nausea and even tho I was hungry I couldn't bare eating for the nausea.
Avatar n tn Hi, I underwent a laparoscopic Nissen Fundoplication in March, 2002. The operation was done to correct the paraesophageal hernia caused by the first laparoscopic Nissen fundoplication and also redo the nissen fundoplication. After the surgery I developed digestive problems. Whenever I eat or drink somethink I had severe head aches together with chills and shivers which only went away after sleep.
Avatar f tn Anyhow, throughout all of this I've had pain on the right side that's gradually gotten worse and has expanded, more so this week. When the pain in my URQ first started I also had right shoulder blade pain. This pain has now evolved and become right shoulder blade pain, right neck pain and right collar bone area pain. My doctors seem to dismiss this. I would love to dismiss it as well but it's quite frightening and the fact that the pain is getting worse and spreading makes me really worried.
Avatar n tn 2 weeks after the appendectomy, I was re-admitted for an abscess in my lower abdomen, about the size of a grapefruit, it was drained successfully (5 more days hospitalization), and I believe it hasn't come back - the hospital did a CBC blood count test a week after I was discharged and it turned out normal. I don't "feel" the pressing abscess anymore. One problem that hasn't really gone away is the dull tenderness and heaviness I have in my mid abdomen.
Avatar n tn Betty - You mentioned in your post that the CT scan did not show anything with the pancreas but they discovered a tumor in your kidney. Was that discovered in the same scan? I had a scan that they said appeared normal, but I had 2 urine samples saying I had 0 - 3 red cells (indicating blood) but that was dismissed as a normal level. I hope all went well with your surgery. If you're feeling well enough to reply I'd appreciate more details. Thank you. Carol D.
Avatar n tn Rapid drop in weight occasional blood in rectum mucus inflamed liver and pancreas and spleen.I could not eat sudenly at all I had great pains in the area of stomach.I also had severe constipation.I was operated on gallblader they found out that my bile was backing back to the liver because of inflamation of the bile duck.Liver biopsy confirmed inflamation of the liver.It took me 4 years to pass the active stage of this desease.
Avatar f tn Glad you took her in. Did he do blood work to check the pancreas or suggest a specific diet for either? Hope she is better soon.
Avatar f tn The scanner detected something weird on my right lower abdomen. I did have pain in my lower abdomen. Around 2 weeks back, I went my GP to get it checked as the pain increased. She did ultrasound, suspected to be appendix. The US showed appendix visible, nabothian cyst in utetus , mild pelvic fluid, equivocal finding for appendix. My GP ordered CT to confirm appendix. She told mild pelvic fluid could be due to appendicitis. I did my CT yesterday, a week after US.
Avatar n tn I had an endoscopy two weeks ago, as a result of the disaster in helath care I endured. Back in December I ended up being severely ill with an abscess in my colon. The doctor in the ER was insistent that it would 'clear itself up' with oral antibiotics. I went home and took them. And ended up hospitalized for several days, as the abscess was worse and I was told they removed about 80mL of infection from my colon.
