Pancreatitis and ileus

Common Questions and Answers about Pancreatitis and ileus


Avatar n tn I was hospitalized for 2 weeks with a diagnosis of acute viral syndrome, leading to ileus and pancreatitis. After the NG tube was removed, I began coughing violently, bringing up a lot of mucous. My primary care dr. said it was allergic post nasal drip. The antihistamine he gave me did not help, so I went to an ENT, who said my throat was being irritated by stomach acid. I have lost 25 lbs. and am still coughing and bringing up mucous.
3241370 tn?1346757469 The most common post-pump abdominal complication is pancreatitis which can look like an ileus. I would assume that he has had his amylase and/or lipase level checked to rule this out.
Avatar n tn I'm curious. I've seen alot of people using celexa complain of fatigue and weight gain which can be typical of some SSRIs. I've noticed that several people have had a drop in T4 while on celexa (TSH/T4 checked prior to initiating antidepressant therapy). Is there any literature out there on this? Can you offer some enlightenment? Thank you.
Avatar f tn In 2006 went in hospital to have a sphincterotomy of the sphincter of oddi and gastro doc ended up putting a stent in the bile duct when he did the ERCP, woke up in severe pain and was admitted to hospital with pancreatitis due to the ERCP and was in there for 23 days, back in for 1 then out and then back in for another 5 days. After 6 weeks back in again and stent removed, still having same problems.
Avatar f tn If she is able to pass then it may not be paralytic ileus. Repeated vomiting and pain could indicate an intestinal obstruction. But with this she may not be able to pass stools or flatus. Her symptoms could sometimes be due to other conditions like pancreatitis, cholecystitis or even renal colic. Blood tests combined with imaging studies should help to diagnose the cause for her symptoms. Good luck with her therapy. Regards.
Avatar n tn At the time I was diagnosed with ileus, pancreatitis, tachycardia and muscle weakness in my extremities. I had an NG tube for 10 days. The day after it was removed I started coughing. I felt a sharp pain like a raw nerve in the right side of my throat going up into my right ear. 7 months later I still have the same symptoms. No cough medication helps. I have been on Aciphex 80 mg. a day for several months and still have the cough.
Avatar n tn I think everything is over and I clean up. I walk out of the toilet and in about 2 minutes time the stomach cramp and the fainting sensation comes back (I've fainted only once to date from this and was out for about 15-20 minutes). 6. When I get back to the toilet I have a really violent Diarrhoea episode in pure liquid state.
Avatar n tn Can you please explain the ongoing metabolic acidosis and the ileus after all this time(1 month after original surg.) and treatment suggestions?
Avatar n tn I'm an RN and I have this patient who had pancreatitis due to gallstones. She had explo-lap /cholecystectomy a month ago and was intubated prior to surgery because of her acidosis. She was extubated 6 days post-op but got re-intubated 2 days after and has been trached already but still unable to be weaned off the vent. She has an ongoing problem with ileus, started her with tube-feeding with resultant diarrhea or high amount of residual in her ngt. She's 70 y/o with hx of same 8 yrs.
Avatar f tn Than while going through elementary and high school I had several bouts of bowel movements, that couldn't wait. I was told when I was about 25 that I had a blockage of adhesions and pancreatitis. They did a resection, and a partial pancrectomy the tail was removed and clipped. I still have several bouts of diarrhea a day. In 2009 the diarrhea was very bad a GI doctor did a colonoscopy, endoscopy, an gi series and other than polyps, and adhesions.
Avatar n tn They did blood tests and thought it was pancreatitis. Well, 2 days later, the Dr. hadn't gotten a specialist and said she had an ileus. I looked it up in a medical book and I figured that she had peritonitis. The dr. said NO. We figured he was giving us the run-around. We requested that he find out what the problem was or get a specialist. Well, 3 days later, after tryiung to call and get in touch with him, he gets one and he orders emergency surgery immediately.
Avatar f tn Remembers it like he lives it over and over and over. It took them four days to get my pancreatitis under control so they could operate and then the last canula they removed nicked an artery so they had to go back in. NO STONES FOUND ANYWHERE. Instead of being 1 and 1/2 hours my surgery was closers to 3 hours. My poor friend almost had a nervous breakdown waiting!
Avatar n tn so my doctor is thinking MAYBE chronic pancreatitis which is so hard because now i am terrified i have chronic pancreatitis. I am 28 and have lost close to 15 pounds...putting me quite underweight. I am terrified of the pancreatitis and at a loss. my doctor too is shrugging his shoulders and keeps trying to put me on pancreatic enzymes which make me sick. a friend of the family stil swears it is my gall bladder even though the gall bladder scan was normal. anyway, I empathize.
Avatar f tn Was diagnosed at around 22 due to pain in the abdomen which was gall bladder disease and pancreatitis. My sister (who has FAP) suggested to do an endo and colonoscopy to check me. Sure enough i already had over a hundred polops. However did not have the total collectomy yet. It wasnt until a few years later and a couple more attacks of pancreatitis that i went to have another series of scopes to check on thing. I was now almost in the thousands and pre-cancerous.
Avatar n tn The next night we went again where they found me to have an ileus (small bowel obstruction), and my amylase and lipase were out of this world. The pancreatitis was most likely caused from the procedure. I was treated n.p.o. for 2 whole days and then gradually weaned off the Demerol and now I am trying to regain some normal eating patterns. I had days when I couldn't keep any food in my body. Now, after much prayer and care, I am starting to eat.
637767 tn?1227583107 I agreed to try Imuran but I was deathly allergic to it and ended up with pancreatitis and a rare diease called Sweet's Syndrome. I was in the hospital 9 days. I finally opted for an illiectomy as a last choice, but was so happy that I would no longer be on the prednisone that I didn't even blink. Then the doctor told me that I could have a pouch restructured in a second surgery. Yippee...what a bonus.
Avatar n tn Stress and anxiety seems to be affecting me more and more each day, especially since the semester is coming to an end (I'm a college student). Basically, I'm not sure how much anxiety is too much and if I should seek help to control it or not. Also, what are the physical symptoms that can arise when someone is experiencing too much anxiety/stress? I usually feel like I have no energy whatsoever, even after getting a good nights sleep.
Avatar n tn htm#Prozac%20Backlash There's tons of info on the net (and I mean professional experts' information - the internet harbours both good and bad sites). There are support boards and info sites specifically with regard to SSRIs generally, some to Prozac, some to Paxil etc.
