233616 tn?1312790796 A guy has a heart attack at 45 because he took treatment. doesn't mean the treatment caused it. could have been his genetics and a million gut bombs..or that he was a prison subject, still it will go down in the list of possible side effevts. there's no way to prove a drug causes evert reaction. Not when they are only around for a few years anyway.Part of the bad rap for GH comes from all the misuse, athletic and hollywood, but docs won't prescribe megadoses for people to become the hulk.

Avatar f tn Swollen pancreatic head may be chronic pancreatitis, but this should be confirmed by increased pancreatic enzymes in blood. Chronic lymphocytic gastritis may be connected with H. pylori infection or with celiac disease (even, if you have no symptoms). I recommend you have a BREATH (not blood) test for H. pylori, and if positive, treatment with antibiotics. The next possible investigation would be duodenal biopsy to check for celiac disease.
Avatar n tn Surgical reexploration should be considered a last resort. The treatment depends on what is found on evaluation - it will vary depending on what the cause of your symptoms are. My previous research on SOD can be found here: http://answers.google.com/answers/main?cmd=threadview&id=119275 I stress that this answer is not intended as and does not substitute for medical advice - please see your personal physician for further evaluation of your individual case.

Avatar n tn If you do consult with docs and find that the condition may be SOD, please seek out someone experienced with the condition to get treatment. And as Dr. Kevin suggested request manometry, keeping in mind that many places do not have the capabilities to do the ERCP with manometry, so you may have to look and ask. Some docs will do an ERCP and perform a sphincterotomy as as standard measure when a patient has pain.
