Common Questions and Answers about Pancreatitis symptoms bleeding


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 n tn There is marked tenderness with guarding in the midepigastrium, but no peritoneal signs. I suspect ACUTE PANCREATITIS based on both the symptoms and the physical examination. To test this I would check his serum for amylase. Does that sound right?
Avatar n tn A portion of her intestine was re-routed and attached to the psuedocyst to drain. She continued with severe pancreatitis and a month and a half later she uderwent another surgical procedure to open the pancreatic ducts to allow the fluid to flow. She had an amazing recovery and was eating and out of the hospital two weeks later. Now, one year later she is having another bout of pancreatitis and we are so scared.
Avatar n tn That said, from the information I've read, Pancreatic cancer is often hard to diagnosis and small tumors can be missed on CT scans. I'm just looking for advice from anyone familiar with the symptoms of chronic pancreatitis, or PC, who might be able to offer any advice. I've got an appt w/a gastro. in December but that's pretty far away, and in the meantime, I feel kind of helpless as the abdominal/back pain, floating stools, and fatigue aren't going anywhere.
902019 tn?1249865014 Usually have done well with prednisone for the various flare-ups but with AIP, still recurring symptoms and the elevated IgG4 periodically. Next step may be Imuran. Is there anyone out there who has had good results with Imuran for autoimmune pancreatitis?
Avatar n tn Your words might shed a little light on something my mom talks little of. Dear emom, The most common causes of acute pancreatitis in the United States are alcoholic pancreatitis and gallstone pancreatitis. Many patients with so-called idiopathic (unknown cause) pancreatitis end up having microlithiasis (small stones or crystals in the biliary tree). There are many other causes of acute pancreatitis but they are less common.. I will list them for you.

Avatar f tn Wikipedia lists potential causes of Panniculitis. Panniculitis can also be classified based on the presence or absence of systemic symptoms: Panniculitis without systemic disease can be a result of trauma or cold;[5] Panniculitis with systemic disease can be caused...
198419 tn?1360245956 While a change like that can cause an upset stomach or even pancreatitis, most likely not bloody diarrhea. We hope it is not parvo-virus as that is very serious and contagious. A foreign object or even a toxin can cause such symptoms also. Let us know what they find and we'll see if we can help further.

Avatar m tn Im posting on here today because of these on going symptoms that have persisted for about 3 weeks now.. My story is I had unprotected vaginal sex with someone who I think is very sexually active. It was rough sex and a little blood was involved.. My concerns: About 3 weeks post encounter I started to get abdominal pains not in any specific area, but if I had to pinpoint it, I would say upper right, but also upper left and lower abdominal..
Avatar m tn Your symptoms could be SO many things including sludge/stones in the CBD, gallbladder/Post-Cholecystectomy Syndrome, Sphincter of Oddi Dysfunction, Small Bowel Bacterial Overgrowth, pancreatitis, etc. The metallic taste is common with pancreatitis, duct, gallbladder and other biliary problems. So are the chronic back pain radiating to your middle back and right shoulder blade, irregular bowel movements, fatigue, frothy urine and abdominal pain. [I have all of that.
Avatar m tn Thanks very much for your help! Please help me I've been having bleeding for over 10 years with bowel movements and had a colonoscopy but the GI said I don't have Crohn's/UC and have hemmarhoids/GERD. I've used HC 25mg suppositories but I keep bleeding every month or two (bright or sometimes darker red blood) and have trouble breathing, relaxing which improves after prednisone/HC.
Avatar n tn I'm having withdrawal symptoms I didn't expect. Light headedness, the runs, blood pressure going up, and general fatigue. Lots of fatigue. And some irritability. I am hoping that these symptoms begin to decrease soon. Well, they have gotten better than it was in the first 2 days. I am still wondering how long I can expect to have these side effects of withdrawal?

Avatar n tn I mean I know it is silent until symptoms present but if these are symptoms presenting such as bleeding hemorhoids and such would it not be reflectd in thigns such as Liver function, not just enzymes etc...?? I just had a little baby and stress is building so I need to get an understandign of the situation as it were...I got panicked about the fact that my Platelets and WBC ahve been trending downwards in 3 test since 2001 but Internal Doc said not to worry and Hep just said to watch..
Avatar f tn I was referred for further evaluation and in June this year had a colonoscopy which came back normal and ruled out IBD and found no source of bleeding. Since the first bleeding episode - a year ago now - I have had repeated episodes of dark red blood, almost clot like, mixed in with the stool, despite no source of bleeding being found. Is it possible that it is coming from my stomach? It usually happens every few weeks although I haven't seen any blood for about 6 weeks now.
Avatar n tn I can be tired after 12 hours sleep! Can I be suffering symptoms from my thallassemia. Does any one else feel the same way that I do? This is a little bit hard for me, but I don't want to complain.
Avatar m tn I had my 2 kids and done so they diagnosed me with mehoriga (not spelled right but it's heavy menstrual bleeding). I had NovaSure performed which was very easy and within a couple months was back to normal. The anemia was so bad I was passing out in public places. Also very nice as I haven't had a cycle since then. In 2009 I started to drink VERY excessively. I drank wine but 6-8 bottles a day. I was also put on a ton of psych meds.
Avatar n tn I developed pancreatitis and bleeding from the area the cuts were made immediately after the ERCP. Now, I have developed anemia...and the iron pills are making me sick. Has anyone experienced something similar to this? I'm supposed to go back to my Dr. but not for another 2 months. I'd appreciate any advice anyone could give me!!
Avatar n tn A lot of people think that if you have a stomach pain and radiates to the back is Pancreatitis. But it can also mean a different disease. But in your case the amylase and lipase tests came out good. Also Pancreastitis has severe stomach pains that is not your case. You might check out for more answers on Pancreatitis issues. Let me ask you this questions? Do you notice any yellow pigmentation in your skin or eyes? What is the color of your urine?
Avatar n tn I've never had any of the symptoms of Behcet's such as mouth sores. I do have a lot of the symptoms of scleroderma, including esophageal dysmotility (I have had increasing difficulty swallowing,) patches of tighter or harder than normal skin, but no strictures or other abnormalities were found in the endoscopy, and those patches of skin are all in areas where the "bleeding under the skin" (which you said might be arythema nosodum) has faded leaving brownish liver colored stains.
Avatar n tn I'm just thinking if it's really worth going through the pancreatitis and bleeding I went through the first time around. My Dr. suggested doing it again but I keep thinking why do it if it's not going to work the 2nd time anyway? Thanks!
Avatar n tn I also become anemic because of internal bleeding and my blood pressure drops very low. The only treatment for pancreatitis is to stop all food and drink. Most people end up in the hospital having IV fluid and pain medication until their lipase drops back to normal and then food is slowly introduced much like after surgery - clear fluids to full fluids to solids.
Avatar f tn webgroup relating for pancreatitis, sphincter of oddi and undiagnosed symptoms. There are a few that are really good. I belong to Michele's and Maddi's. Search yahoo! groups for pancreatitis and you'll see a bunch of them. It is a great way to connect with others who have similar problems. There are also excellent links and resources. Finally, it provides a social outlet. The weirdness is that many of us have abdominal symptoms AND neurological/neuromuscular symptoms.

1519223 tn?1500816586 Abdominal pain that may radiate to the back Increased pain while eating or bending forward Nausea Vomiting Fever Rapid heartbeat Cases of pancreatitis associated with Januvia and Janumet tend to be acute, meaning the disease occurs quickly and over a short period of time, and it can be fatal. A UCLA clinical study published in the journal Gastroenterology revealed that taking Januvia increases the risk of pancreatitis six-fold, and cases usually develop in less than two months.
