I wanted to clarify to you that I have had three acute pancreatitis attacks and I now have chronic pancreatitis
. Swelling in
my abdomen was very visible in
the area affected, and that area was particularly painful to pressure. The pain was excrutiating all throughout the abdomen, behind the sternum, through to the back anyways, but any pressure on the swollen area was even more intense. This was due to an irritated, enlarged pancreas and the presence of pseudocysts within.
