Avatar n tn Sometimes my ribs and side is tender to touch and I get gas and discomfort as well as low back ache. I had one bad lot of pain one night that I thought might be pancreatitis but nothing since and I carried on drinking heavily (I had a drink problem but have stopped now) for several months after and no more attacks. I am wondering whether mine is pancreatitis so let me know if you find out.. don't know of anyone else having it in left hip though. I wouldn't worry about cancer ...
Avatar n tn If you had Pancreatitis you would know it! The pain is normally starts out on your RIGHT side underneath your ribcage. Eventually the pain will shoot through the middle of your stomach and to your back. It is the most god awful pain you will ever experience in your life. In my opinion it was worse than any labor pains I ever experience. Read down farther in this forum. TazLady has posted many things in regards to Pancreatitis as well as Concerned Lady.
Avatar n tn Cessation of alcohol intake is imperative, particularly if this is the underlying etiology of pancreatitis. Abstinence does not always lead to symptomatic improvement; however, patients with alcohol-induced chronic pancreatitis who continue to drink have increased mortality.
Avatar n tn Would pain due to pancreatitis be disabling in most cases? I am having post gallbladder removal problems, and I am concerned that my pain is due to pancreatitis? Had my surgery in June with a lot of problems afterwards. At one point I was diagnosed with a bile leak, and given antibiotics. After that I felt pretty good for several months, but now the pain has started again. I have a lot of pressure under my ribs, both sides. Stomach area is burning.
Avatar n tn I am getting some similar pain but mine is not so bad, it came on after I was prescribed Penicillin and took strong pain Meds and had dental work done , I am still a mystery but not taking any other prescribed meds that make me ill.

Avatar f tn I've had CT Scan, small bowel series, and EGD. All normal. Now I'm having pain in my lower abdomin mostly right side with groin pain sometimes. Also have upper left abd. pain rad. to my back. Maybe something to do with my pancreas. Anyway, I've talked to some friends at work and they said the swelling could be due to a hernia. I can't tell if I have one because my stomach is so swelled up. So I have a referral to a surgeon to see if he can find out what is going on.
Avatar n tn Since Friday I continue to get nausiated after eating ANYTHING and continually have a nagging pain in my upper right side which gets worse after I eat. The pain shoots through to my back. The only time I remember having pains like this was when I was hospitalized with Pancreatitis after having an ERCP done last November. I went to my primary care physician yesterday. He seems to think that it might be pancreatitis and that I should go back to my gastrointerologist.
Avatar n tn Does the duct dilatation set off an inflamation of the liver and pancreas and cause the pancreatitis pain? Also can the duct dilatation heal on its own in time? I have no desire to undergo an ERCP as I've heard such nightmare stories from people who have undergone but yet I'm so tired of not feeling good and having pain and just would like to feel good again. Thanks for your help.
Avatar n tn I had to put my 11 year old Llhasa apso to sleep yesterday because he was diagnosed with pancreatitis and was in so much pain that they could not guarantee that he would survive even with treatment. It came on suddenly...he was fine Saturday but began throwing up in the middle of the night and continued...he couldn't even hold down water and was very weak. I took him into the veterinary hospital on Sunday and he was too weak to come home.
Avatar f tn The thing that is hard with it is, which you have experienced, your scans can look normal and blood tests also and you still have pain,nausea, fatigue and the whole pancreatitis everything! The ER will not do anything about this because nothing is showing up on any of your tests and according to the its not an "emergency" so get to a GI fast! chronic pancreatitis is hard to diagnose so hang in there!
Avatar f tn Fluid therapy, regular blood work (sometimes several times a day), pain meds or a patch for pain and antibiotics are often used. This is a very painful condition. In pancreatitis, nutrients the dog needs are passed out in the feces, thus probably the reason for the weight loss (and that is quite a bit). Has he been checked for diabetes?
Avatar n tn i DID NOTICE THAT I DIDN'T HAVE ALOT OF PAIN AFTER EATING AND DIDN'T NEED TO RUN TO THE BATHROOM. I'M NOT INTERESTED IN GAINING WEIGHT, I HAVE BEEN LOSING, BUT AM NOT UNDER WEIGHT RIGHT NOW. HOW MANY GRAMS OF FAT DO YOU EAT DAILY? WHAT IS YOUR SAMPLE DIET LIKE??
Avatar n tn My 7 year old champion 4-H obedience/Showmanship female schnauzer was recently and unexpectedly diagnosed with pancreatitis. Her Lipase levels reflected 6000. Three days later her levels dropped to 5000, by the 5th day they jumped to almost 8000. After a long talk with the Vet, I elected to bring her home if she was able to hold food down. Despite the high lipase level, the dog was perkier and feeling better, we were risking her survival, but it was chance it or euthanize the dog.
Avatar m tn i recently had an ercp test done after countless begging from my numerous doctors and am in more pain now then before. is there any advice for all this and more??
Avatar n tn is it normal to have some residual soreness after acute pancreatitis? If so, how long will should the soreness last?
Avatar n tn I know from experience how awful pancreatitis can be, and hope he at least has a decent pain management doc. I can't imagine going through a huge surgery like a Whipple only to have it fail. Do the docs give you any idea at all as to why he is still having attacks? Another blockage? Scar tissue? Anything? It may be true that there really isn't anything left to do. People with chronic pancreatitis sometimes suffer for years and years until the pancreas basically burns itself out.
Avatar f tn It wasn't until a week and a half later in my hometown,after the operation, and after the nurses had removed my drain from my abdomen, that I noticed the leaking drain site was literally still pouring out a yellowish/ brownish fluid. At this stage I didn't know about my pancreas complication. I saw my gp who poked and prodded the drain site, squeezing it saying I had an infection. I went to the hospital because my upper left quadrant in my back was excruciating and the fluid wouldn't stop.

Avatar n tn However, over the last couple of weeks, I have had a recurring pain which is reminiscent of the pain I suffered with the pancreatitis - although a lot milder in its form. It's a sort of crampy, central pain which feels like it's more in my chest than anywhere (sort of around and behind my boobs is the best, but crude, explanation!). It feels as if it's radiating down into my shoulders sometimes too. This is exactly where the pain of the pancreatitis was.
Avatar m tn I'm starting to get a little worried about pancreatitis after some online research. It's been going on and off for years. I used to abuse alcohol, but have been relatively clean for over a year, with a few relapses here and there. Could this be something like pancreatitis or something else?
Avatar m tn I have had pancreatitis since December 2006 and have had pain pretty much every day since. I also have Pancreas Divisum and a stricture in the main duct ( an MRI at Barnes Jewish Hospital in St,Louis has shown the the duct is completely closed off) that was caused from a 9cm pseudocyst. I take Norco (hydrocodone) 10/325mg for pain.
Avatar n tn They said they didn't know how she got it. Ever since the pancreatitis she has been in pain just about every day (and missing quite a bit of school). It doesn't seem to make a difference as to the types of food she eats. She has tried going without milk for 4-5 days and without wheat for about a week. She was tested for food allergies also, which came back negative. The most pain she has is in her abdomen area, running horizontally from side to side and it is tender to press on.
Avatar n tn usualy best while in pain,,,not after it subsides. ultra sound of the pancreas. does he have pain through to his back? epigastric pain mostly center to left side? is his belly destended? barrium swallow could rule out ulcer do to years of alcohol abuse,and to be sure hes not got excessive stomach bleeding.
Avatar f tn He got discharged from hospital on december 15 after coming home,he again feels pains in his stomach on 30th december,after that he is admitted again on 31 december then again he is not given anything to eat for a weak after his pain settle down he got discharged on 7 january 2008.Again after 5 days he again suffers from pain on 11 january and again admitted to hospital for 10 days and discharged on 20 january.even now he is not able to digest anything.
Avatar n tn Can a person develop chronic pancreatitis after having acute pancreatitis that resulted from having an ERCP? I have developed abdominal pain that radiates to my side and back that is relieved when I lean forward and worsens when I lean back. No nausea or vomiting, no fever. Should I follow up with my doctor? I had the acute pancreatitis around 2004. Thanks for your response.
