Common Questions and Answers about Pancreatitis causes mayo clinic


902019 tn?1249865014 The other thing you may want to ask about is a comment I saw on the Mayo Clinic site that said that Imuran can cause or contribute to Pancreatitis. I'd love to know what he/she says on both counts.
Avatar n tn I have the same symptoms as your daughter. I too had a Dr tell me it was IBS. That was a DR at the Mayo Clinic. I was told they were suppose to be the best. I think the IBS is just a symptom of what ever else is going on. I remember leaving that Drs office with an elevated liver and he said "we'll just keep an eye on it" None of the medications worked for me, and it is so frustrating to be in so much pain and no one will listen. Keep pushing it.
Avatar m tn Was originally told transplant but then was informed that his liver enzymes are still functioning well at times to prevent us from being placed on liver transplant list and they just don't know why he is hurting so much - they refer us to a pain management center.
Avatar n tn is it possible for him to come here and go to the mayo clinic? they will find out what is wrong. i am having similar troubles-- and they don't know what is happening-- have they checked his amylase level and lipase level? just wondering.

Avatar n tn There is nothing worse than a pain you can't seem to treat or get an answer about. I can totally sympathize. There are so many causes of pain on the upper left side of a persons abdomen.
Avatar n tn DO NOT overlook Chronic Pancreatitis. It is very hard to diagnose in some cases and causes extreme upper right quadrant pain radiating to the back. It cause a lot of symptoms, some different in different people. My wife is completely debilitated and in tremendous pain and goes on IV Dilaudid every month or more for 5 days. It often gets worse as time goes by. Don't fool around with local doctors! Go to a GI clinic, like Mayo, in Florida, Shands at Univ. of Fl is good, etc.
Avatar n tn It often gets worse as time goes by. Don't fool around with local doctors! Go to a GI clinic, like Mayo, in Florida, Shands at Univ. of Fl is good, etc. My wife spent 9 months with local GI doctors and was diagnosed with everything from Pelvic floor dysfunction to IBS and more. NONE WERE CORRECT. Search the web for Chronic Pancreatitis and read up on it. It hits more males than female and often in the 40's age range.
1126279 tn?1311898642 I had my pancreas totally removed (also gallbladder & spleen) at Mayo Clinic in Rochester MN. They have an excellent surgeon who does it laparoscopic!!! The recovery was very rough but not near as bad as having it open & not laparoscopic! I am now a Type 1 Diabetic & take enzymes with my food. Depending on where you are, Johns Hopkins & UCLA also have highly recognized surgeons for this surgery.
Avatar m tn By Mayo Clinic staff Many diseases and conditions can contribute to elevated liver enzymes. .....
Avatar n tn I had a friend who had terrible nausea and she went to Mayo Clinic in Rochester because all the UW GI doctors in Madison, WI couldn't find any anwsers. NOW THIS SOUNDS STRANGE...BUT IT'S TRUE: They told her that her body just couldn't hold any more food and that's why it comes back out. Her entire body was blocked up. They had to teach her how to have a bowel movement. It seems her sphincter in her anus had bascially forgot how to work.
Avatar n tn With regard to the issue as to why you developed pancreatitis and not someone else who drinks an equivalent amount, there is a variability in th eeffects of alcohol. Although genetic (hereditary) causes for pancreatitis have been identified, it is currently uncertain whether alcohol-induced pancreatitis has a genetic component. Smoking is bad but should not cause pancreatitis.
Avatar n tn "i have a fatty liver" Definition By Mayo Clinic staff Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease is a term used to describe the accumulation of fat in the liver of people who drink little or no alcohol. Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease is common and, for most people, causes no signs and symptoms and no complications. But in some people with nonalcoholic fatty liver disease, the fat that accumulates can cause inflammation and scarring in the liver.
Avatar n tn This time they put stents in the bile ducts and I was sent to the Mayo Clinic. They did not agree with the conclusion of PSC. I was not happy with the Mayo Clinic as they concluded scar tissue due to the gall bladder removal, however, we thought that is impossible as all my symptoms were there prior to the removal of the gall bladder. So my real doctor, whom I greatly respect, decided to do what is called stent therapy.
Avatar f tn If you really DO suspect pancreatitis, there are things you can do to try to ease the symptoms. According the the Mayo Clinic website - Stop drinking alcohol. If you're unable to stop drinking alcohol on your own, ask your doctor for help. Your doctor can refer you to local programs to help you stop drinking. Stop smoking. If you smoke, quit. If you don't smoke, don't start. If you can't quit on your own, ask your doctor for help. Medications and counseling can help you quit smoking.
1176711 tn?1265341941 She is having a flair up now and she is in the hospital and I have done extensive research and have come up with the Mayo Clinic. My daughter needs to see a motility expert. There a reasons why my daughter and yours are getting the gastroparesis. We seem to think that our daughter has a metabolic problem, like thyroid... but dont know for sure yet. I am in contact now with Mayo trying to set up an appt. Hopefully this helps you out a bit, Any questions please let me know and good luck.
Avatar n tn My son had a gastric transit time done at Mayo Clinic last month, and after 7 hours, less than 26% of the food had made it to the small bowel. They also found that he has a malabsorption syndrome going on, as way too much fat, protein, calories, calcium, vitamins, minerals, etc., are going straight through him and into the stool. We know by testing he has had performed (we spent a total of 4 weeks there) that he suffers from autonomic dysfunction, which causes the gastroparesis, etc.

Avatar n tn I had hypercalcemia due the the hyperparathyroidism for at least 10 yrs. I read on the mayo clinic page that hyperparathyroidism could cause pancreatitis, but the hyperparathyroidism has been corrected for over a year now. Could it still be causing some lingering problems with my digestive system? I'm just wondering if the gall bladder was the actual problem, or if there was something going on with the pancreas. Thx!
Avatar n tn It's just my dad's personal opinion that if this super specialist doesn't think it's SOD, then it's probbaly not SOD. I said how about take her to the Mayo clinic? He said it's all the same kinds of doctors there as this super specialist in SF. Maybe he's all wrong. He admitts he has no experience with this stuff. In all his practice of over 30 years he's never seen such a difficult and persistent case of GI problems.
Avatar f tn I often post information that's freely available as many folks either don't take the time to look at the available information out there from more reputable sites like the Mayo Clinic or US federal information clearinghouses or they often don't have the ability to really search the 'net effectively. I apologize if the information provided was not helpful, and I hope you see a doctor soon as this is obviously a difficult time for you.
Avatar f tn Now my family doctor and my rheumatologist referred me to a neurologist at the mayo clinic. Can anyone tell me anything?
Avatar n tn Getting back the last tests results this week, urine sent to mayo clinic and brain eeg and talking to heart doctor about what he read on 30 day event monitor. if all this looks ok, i will have to think it is/was all stress related. The pain in chest is bothersome. stays so sore and gets worse when i cough or do much. spot about the size of a fist right between breast a little to the left . thanks for responding.
Avatar f tn When this 'sludge' or these calcifications build up behind the Sphincter of Oddi, this causes pressure, and the pressure causes pain. Eventually the pressure pushes the calcifications through, which relieves the pressure. Essentially you're feeling a gall bladder attack without the gall bladder. And every GI doctor we went to thought the problem was IBS or nerve pain or just in her head. Incredible. But there is a medication that can make it go away!
Avatar f tn It took 14 different doctors to not know what was going on before I got fed up and went to the MAYO clinic. They were awesome and there was only one doctor there that could even preform the surgery. I thought at first that everything I ate caused the pain. Since I last posted I think I've gotten a handle on what does and does not cause it. I've figured out that any time my body processes fat I have pain.
Avatar n tn Then she kind of caught herself and said there is no doctor in Las Vegas,that will do the tests that need to be done, so she is refering him to the mayo clinic in Arizona. I want to say a big thank you to you guys, without being tipped off about this condition and without you guys sharing your stories, I would have never known about this condition and would have never brought it up to his doc. So again, thank you sooo much!!!
