Common Questions and Answers about Pancreatitis nursing diagnosis

pancreatitis

Avatar f tn Well after all this time in the hospital, not getting any better, in fact getting worse in some ways, progress has been made in the form of an actual diagnosis! I have Salmonella Poisoning!!! That is why I’ve been getting worse all this time. My system has been less and less able to fight the salmonella infection, all the steroids, antibiotics (so many but not the one to kill salmonella) and other drugs to treat my chest infection and asthma were being blamed for my dodgy upset stomach.

Avatar n tn I am very interested in your diagnosis of pancreatitis. How did your docs come up with that? At first I had problems with pancreatitis alot because of the SOD. MOre recently it has been showing up in my liver enzymes. I still get alot of the same pains, though. OFten times I call my doc and I say that I feel just like I have pancreatitis, but then my labs will come back normal. I am wondering if some of my pain is still related to pancreatitis.
Avatar n tn After about 2 weeks she went back to the hospital with the diagnosis of acute pancreatitis and vomiting/ GI bleed. She is not doing well now. I was wondering if the decrease in status is mainly due to the acute pancreatitis now?
Avatar n tn Quality of life has been an issue for Snapp for as long as she can remember, suffering with debilitating pain and vomiting that caused her to miss long stretches of school as a child and days of work as an adult. She was finally diagnosed with pancreatitis in 2000. The diagnosis brought her both relief and shame. "Pancreatitis is usually associated with alcoholics, but I don't drink," she said.
Avatar n tn im confused. your topic is flank pain... flank is usually at the back side. are you referring to subcostal area? can you be more specific?
Avatar n tn He was unable to do the manometry and I developed a severe case of pancreatitis. The second attempt he was still unable to do the necessary measurements, but he put a stent in my pancreatic duct (not sure why). I Have had chronic bouts of pancreatitis and have been pretty much in constant pain which escalates to what I call "mind-bending" pain 3 to 4 times a day.
Avatar f tn I am trying to work but getting harder and harder. I have bills to pay I have to work. I plan going to nursing school (my dream) next April. Someone tell me something good.
287827 tn?1357564083 Can I put off the surgery off until I'm done nursing? (I nursed my daughter for 19 months and plan on nursing my son for at least a year) Any advice or help would be greatly appreciated!!
Avatar m tn A sphincterotomy was performed and stent implanted, diagnosis chronic pancreatitis. This seemed to help for about a month than constant rectal bleeding, 5 cases of pyelnephritis???, unbearable cramping Bladder/Bowel/Upper GI, constant nausea, severe reflux pain, and the newest symptom low blood sugars at least every 2 to 3 days(last episode 42 blood sugar count)over 3 month period. All of this has also led to 2 nervous breakdowns, 1 suicide attempt, and diagnosed bipolar.
Avatar n tn He abstained froming drinking for about 10 months and then started drinking again. He has also developed chronic pancreatitis. His blood tests don't indicate that there is anything going on with his liver, but is that a good indicator or not? What is his realistic prognosis if he continues to drink?
Avatar n tn It's been 2 years for me, and it was finally assessed this week as possible mitral valve prolapse. I will be having another echo cardiogram done shortly to confirm the diagnosis. Chest pain should definitely be investigated especially if it is constant.
Avatar n tn I'm sorry for rambling on but I really don't know what to think about the diagnosis and have had no life for months and as I was a nursing student I cannot get back onto my course until I am on no strong painkillers and no pain. If someone could just give me information and how they deal with this I will be so grateful!!!
Avatar n tn Diane, I was a pancreatitis sufferer. NO you do not need to be diabetic, etc. to have pancreatitis. I was born without the main common duct and did not have problems until my early 40's. Please take a few minutes to read my story - I think you will find it helpful with your mom's case. I would be happy to answer any questions you may have. You will need to type in the web address to access my story. I ended up having my pancreas removed to get rid of the pain and stop malnutrition.
Avatar n tn Since then I have never been the same - I have had periods (much shorter this time) where the severe/acute symptoms come back again, and have had numerous infections including costochondritis and diverticulitis and even had to get my gallbladder removed after a sudden onset of pancreatitis. In 2007 I was finally diagnosed with fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, hashimoto's, IBS, and dormant ebstein-barr and HHV-6.
Avatar n tn I'm a 39 year old male Can someone please give me a short diagnosis as to what can be causing my pain
Avatar m tn Additionally, it now appears I have chronic pancreatitis, and something weird going on with my thyroid fluctuating wildly from one end of the spectrum to the other. After three years on non-treatment and my health and functioning going steadily downhill, I'm feeling very strongly if I'm ever going to be able to function normally again, this virus needs to be eradicated from my body ASAP. Any thoughts? Does this sound like a doctor that can treat the "whole person" ?
480895 tn?1212153335 The hospital notes state that a Nissen Fundo, was likely necessary in the future. He was hospitalized in late November for 9 days, due to inability to eat from GERD and diagnosis of Apraxia (a neurological oral motor dysfunction), and placed on an NG feeding tube.
Avatar n tn I went to the ER a couple of weeks ago and they told me i had an ulcer and they gave me prevacid. Well the meds are gone and i still have pains. I work in a nursing home and my administrator told me that if your gall bladder is acting up it affects your left side but I have never heard of that. Anyone else? I dont really have any suggestions for anyone but its nice to know someone else is having the same wierd pains that nobody can explain.
Avatar f tn Burning character pain suggests a diagnosis of reflex sympathetic dystrophy. b. Dull, throbbing, and aching pain supports a diagnosis of osteoarthritis, myofascial pain, and fibromyalgia. c. Electric, tingling, and numb quality of pain may suggest radiculopathy, plexopathy, polyneuropathy, compressive mononeuropathies such as carpal tunnel syndrome, and intracranial pathology such as thalamic pain, multiple sclerosis, and other conditions. d.
1545021 tn?1322481085 You definitely have something going that needs to be sorted ASAP. I am not so sure it is Pancreatic CA. In my nursing career; I have been a nurse for 14 years, have I only taken care of one patient in your age group with Pancreatic CA. Any family history of cancer puts you at risk for any type of cancer. I think I have a family history of 8-10 different types of cancers. I wish you all the best. Hang in there.
Avatar n tn Really after I stopped nursing I would get bloating, diarreah, and stomch pains. I stopped nursing 8 months ago, but now for the last month I have been feeling like I need to vomit, but nothing comes up. I just sit in pain for a few hours feeling like crap. Any ideas of what could be going on? I'm thinking it's bile build up in my stomach. I don't know, but I hate it. Having diarreah and this stomach pains just ruin my days (not all but a lot). I haven't been doing anything different either.
1916673 tn?1420236870 The anesthetics themselves according to my own vet, are safer than they used to be and less stressful for older dogs. Then he will need good nursing care and support afterwards. You can expect he will take a little longer to recover than a 4 year old would. And at first may be off his food because his gums may be too sore to enjoy eating. But careful nursing will help.
Avatar n tn Intercourse is almost unbearable. What do you recommend?. I have been in nursing 18 years, and know a little, prob enough to get me in trouble.
Avatar m tn I will take the injections the rest of my life (or until I'm forced to enter a nursing home or assisted living facility and some doctor refuses to prescribe them). When I started the injections, I was given 1 mL injection/week for 1 month, then dropped to 1 mL/month; however, the monthly shots weren't enough so the frequency was increased to every 2 weeks, which still wasn't enough and was eventually increased to weekly, which has remained for the past several years.
Avatar f tn My kids are at the ER tonight with their dad (my ex). He has been a severe alcoholic for 20+ years and was diagnosed 15 months ago with Alcoholic Hepatitis and Cirrosis of the liver. He was told then that if he quit drinking, he had approx 2 years to live. He continued to drink heavily until 3 days ago, when he became too sick to drink. He has lost 40+ pounds in the past 6 months, is vomiting blood and has bloody diarrhea now.
Avatar n tn The doctor at rehab was trying to follow the nursing board guidelines, for I am a nurse with a substance abuse problem. I am on methadone. I do not abuse my xanax or methadone. My current doctor's nurse is trying to cut back my dosage weekly. I have to go see the doctor. He will straighten things out for a few months. But I am afraid I will have to face this issue eventually. I've tried the SRI's and neuroleptics.
Avatar n tn active cirrhosis, metastatic liver tumor and pancreatitis. And the MRCP would take a look at your pancreas as well. How did your appointment with the hepatologist go? I believe H. Pylori can be a cause of ulcers. When you go on the antibiotics, you'll want to be sure and try and counter it with some acidophilus capsules (or equivalent), because antibiotics very well could make your diarrhea problem even worse, since they kill the good bacteria with the bad.
Avatar n tn The doctors have no idea what it is and say everything is normal, but I keep seeing so many people with these symptoms and no diagnosis.. And the pain is real and very annoying, so something has to be wrong I just wish I knew what it is. A hot compress does help make the pain go away, that's what I did after thanksgiving dinner because it started hurting. Does anyone have any ideas, what should I get tested next?
Avatar n tn Hey Rob - See some of the previous posts below re. upper left quadrant pain without a diagnosis. Pretty discouraging. Some of us women suffering from these same symptoms have thought maybe it could be due to female hormonal changes, but I think your case just ruled that out as a possibility. Oh well... Have they (the Drs.) ever given you any clue? Your sympotoms sounds so exactly like mine ("kinda like gurgling, pulled muscle, twitching feeling inside").
