Pancreatitis symptoms long

Common Questions and Answers about Pancreatitis symptoms long


Avatar n tn It can take a heck of a long time to start to feel decent. With pancreatic cancer symptoms, there normally are very, very few until the cancer is well-advanced.
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 Schnauzers, particularly mini-schnauzers, are notorious for pancreatitis. As long as you can get her through acute attacks, you can probably manage the chronic symptoms for a long time. My Aunt had a mini schnauzer that lived to be 19 years old with chronic panc. :-) As for testing, I'd probably just go by how the dog behaves and what symptoms are present. If she looks bad, she probably IS bad. After that, it's a matter of knowing when she needs hospitalization.
Avatar n tn Diabetes should only be an issue if he develops chronic pancreatitis for a very long time. Eventually enough islet cells are damaged that insulin can no longer be produced. I doubt that has happened yet with such a fast recovery, and it may never happen. My aunt had a mini schnauzer who lived over 18 years, and most of those years included chronic pancreatitis with a few acute attacks requiring hospitalization. Apparently pancreatitis is a big genetic problem with that breed now.
Avatar m tn I was diagnosed with mild pancreatitis over 4 years ago it is on going. I currently still am experiencing slight pain on my right side. I have been seen by a GI doctor and a CT Scan, Ultra sound, MRCP have been performed. No issues have been found, I asked if it could be cancer and was told no tumors or cist we found wehn reviewing the xrays. We then tried to stop my BP meds thinking they could be the cause, but I could not stay off of them long enough to make a determination.
Avatar n tn Dear Kerrie, Pamcreatitis canbe one of the complications of lupus- either a direct result of the vasculitis or an adverse effect of the medications that you take, It is always necessary to exclude gallstone-induced pancreatitis because stones can cause a more severe pancreatitis as well as cholangitis (inflammation of the bile duct). Pnacreatiti susually presents with sharp painin th ecenter of the abomen near the ribs. The pain may go straiught through to the back.
Avatar f tn Where specialist after specialist came through my sons hospital room. None could tell me what was wrong with him. The two main symptoms other than the fever were diffuse and colicky belly pain, and joint pain in legs and arms. They did lab testing to discover his CRP came back @15.3 Sed Rate of 100. Moderate titer AntiNeuclear Antibody 1:160 nucleolar. and 1:320 speckled pattern. but additional testing came back negative.
436191 tn?1256649906 Interview a number of them and see how many of their patients have developed post ERCP pancreatitis. When done in good hands, your risk of post-ERCP pancreatitis is very, very small. Good luck.
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 is it normal to have some residual soreness after acute pancreatitis? If so, how long will should the soreness last?
Avatar m tn The presence of sludge/stones that can be expelled from the GB, enter the common bile duct and irritate that structure can result in spasms and/or blockages that impact the junction of the common bile duct/pancreatic duct and result in pancreatitis. Further, cases of gallbladder issues and GERD can produce similar symptoms. You may want to return to your doctor and discuss the issue.
Avatar n tn Feel free to post again if you have any more questions. What are the symptoms of chronic pancreatitis? The symptoms are very variable. Pain occurs in most patients at some stage of the disease. This may vary in intensity from mild to severe. It may last for hours or sometimes days at a time and may require strong painkillers to control it. It often radiates through to the back and can sometimes be relieved by crouching forward.
Avatar n tn My Dr. said I may have mild chronic pancreatitis. Does anyone know exacactly what this is?
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 But since its a GI query, thought its good if i can get some advice here. few months ago, i became very weal dizzy and ill. still am, i am, i keep getting hypoglycemia symptoms, constant brainfog, i did faint once was taken to emergency hospital.
10821430 tn?1439584483 5~ all other levels were within normal ranges.

611067 tn?1458595083 As for me, the specialist cannot do the test he wanted because my intestines (from my gastric bypass) are still too long for him (with an endoscope) to go throught he pouch into the intestines and back up into the duct area. So, he is doing an MRI instead this Friday. I'm feeling a lot better as far as pain goes, but still have the other symptoms of diarrhea, nausea and headaches.
902019 tn?1249865014 How long have you been on Viokase and up till now had it provided any relief from symptoms? Also, have you had IgG4 blood test? This is the diagnostic test for AIP. Please let me know results of your biopsy.
Avatar n tn The nurse telling me a LITTLE gave me some comfort but all these symptoms and he seems to check out better than we thought. With all of his symptoms it really shocked us. He has lost over 22lbs now in just a few wks. He stopped taking all the medicines except the antibiotic and is back to drinking. I will keep posting. Thank you so very much. I really needed to talk.
Avatar f tn Since then I have had severe RUQ pain, resulting in an ERCP, and my doctor cut my sphincter during this procedure, I was then admitted to the hospital for pancreatitis after the surgery. I spent 4 days in the hospital and was discharged. I am starting to have pain again. Is this normal. Did it happen to anyone else?
Avatar n tn My husband and I told him our concerns about the possibility of my having pancreatitis, as I had the exact same symptoms. My doctor quickly dismissed it and sent me home with phenergan saying I more than likely had a virus and it would pass. After vomiting 14 days straight, I was back at my doctor's office... again, phenergan and go home.
Avatar n tn It took so long for them to diagnose my pancreatitis that now it is chronic and extemely painful. The pain is usually in the middle or upper left side of the belly. Causes smelly and loose clay colored stools. This is nothing to mess around with so if it gets worse or doesn't go away hit the ER.
Avatar n tn Hi, I have chronic pancreatitis and have found that if I get too hungry I will have pain too, it's strange and I thought it was just me! yes, I too will stay away from food as long as possible to get rid of the pain, but then comes that not eating pain if I go too long, can't win, it's either pain because I ate, or pain because I have gone too long without eating enough!
Avatar f tn Hi, you are so right. Pancreatitis is a crazy disease. My 9 yr old Poodle Julie just got better with a severe bout with it again..for the 2nd time in 6 months. Each time she was hospitalized for 4 days.She also has Cushings disease & I treat her with Trilostane for that. Her "pot belly" look was getting so much better but today, I noticed it was big again. This worries me. Does Pancreatitis ever go away?
Avatar n tn This sounds more like an acute Pancreatitis attack. Chronic Pancreatitis, to my knowledge, does not have the type symptoms you indicate. Acute pancreatitis has high levels of amalase and lipase and is sometimes very critical as this one appears to be. Do a search on the web for acute Pancreatitis for more information than you can read. Then do one on Chronic Pancreatitis and see the differences. Hope things improve.
559187 tn?1330786456 I had to stay home sick today as I did not get any sleep last night because of stomach pain and nausea. I am also having fatigue that is so overwhelming and comes on so quickly that I feel compelled to stop whatever I am doing and go lay down. That is very strange as that never happens to me. So I called my PCP to tell her what was going on.
Avatar n tn Hey all, i'm 21 years old and about a month + ago I was diagnosed with pancreatitis. I had my first attack - a really high fever with stomach pain - that had me in the hospital for about 3 days. After being discharged and going back to food, I had the same fever (no stomach pain this time around) 2 days later and that ended up with me sitting in the hospital for a month without food or water.
