1453931 tn?1285188953 Hi I am 19, I am being diagnosed with Chronic Pancreatitis, We have been waiting for a specialist to come to our Mayo hospital to do a EUS on me, which is scheduled for Friday. My GI is super confident in his diagnosis, and so are we this is really the only disease I match up to 100%. In my case this is a rare diagnosis because I am so young and obviously my lifestyle habits have not called this. I have been sick for almost 3 years now undiagnosed and miserable.
902019 tn?1249865014 My doctor can't explain the cramps (not in the back which is the usual area for pancreatitis) nor the weight loss (very gradual over time and definitely not from dieting). I have had recent CT Scan and while everything is not completely back to normal (enlarged) it is stable. Doctor not concerned ... apparently that is sometimes what happens in some cases. My original episode was quite severe with significant jaundice, blockage, emergency ERCP etc.
Avatar n tn disease of the biliary tract, for example: gall stones blocking the duct where it opens into the duodenum alcoholism trauma - bullet or knife wound duodenal ulcer hyperparathyroidism - over active parathyroid glands hyperlipidaemia - abnormally high levels of lipids such as cholesterol in the blood viral infection certain drugs such as corticosteroids and thiazide diuretics. The main symptom of pancreatitis is severe abdominal pain that is sudden in onset and continuous.
Avatar m tn in his medical experience and followup of research since 1980s in his specialty of liver diseases, he does not see the need of combo treatment in place of the baraclude treatment that he has prescribed. Of course he acknowledged that doctors are different hence their treatments are different. I am free to choose another doctor, he said. As for Dr. Keeffe's paper, he said that Dr. Keeffe is a big name in hepatology, but he also noted that Dr.
Avatar n tn I was in the hospital last month with pancreatitis. The treatment is for no food. The pancreas needs to rest, and by not eating it can heal. Your baby will get plenty of nourishment from what your body has stored. Not being a Dr I can only guess that another case of pancreatitis would be worse for the baby than to go without food for a few days. By leaving without the Dr discharging you. You are showing the Drs that you are unwilling to follow Drs orders.
Avatar f tn Febrile Convulsions, as seen in your son is a common pediatric presentation in children between the ages of 6 months to 5 years. The seizure usually occurs early in a viral infection especially when there is an abrupt rise in temperature. It typically lasts less than 5 minutes. The main component of Valparin is sodium valproate, which is indicated in all forms of epilepsy and as prevention of recurrent febrile seizure in children, just like your son.
Avatar m tn If all the GOOD doctors out there could feel comfortable speaking up about the necessity of these medications in the treatment of their patients, this petition would be reduced to ashes in a day. Sadly, our doctors already feel like their are working with one hand tied behind their back - and under constant scrutiny for doing what they KNOW is right for their patients. I don't know how to end opioid abuse. What I DO know is the PROP petition is NOT going to do it.
Avatar f tn i had an ex that had the treatment and didnt tell me till after my son died that he had the treatment 3 months before i got pregnant. my son had trisomy 18 and never left the hospital. they didnt find out till later that it was because of the interferon my son died. i put it off for so long and now i have had two liver biopsies and two more children hep free it is time.
877337 tn?1249848050 Then I was admitted in ER for pancreatitis then they said my levels of Hyperthyroid are went high which needed immediate treatment. Then i started om Methimazole .After few months my LIVER levels came little bit up and my antibodies were also high. As iam already have pancreatitis they said sludge in gallbladder which would affect liver and now Methimazole liver levels up NOTGOOD .As we were on TTC for babies they said i should take immediate option.
1560663 tn?1298050127 I also have a 10 year old cat who had exploratory surgery because she was vomiting. They thought it was Pancreatitis, then an x-ray and u/s showed a thickening in the colon so that is when we scheduled surgery. This is not Mega Colon but IBS, and I treat her with 1/8 tsp Miralax in her morning wet food and her evening wet food. She is on a diet pf Z/D prescription wet food and dry, and takes Budesonide (formulated as a liquid) every day.
233616 tn?1312790796 this hormone is produced in the pituitary and is ESSENTIAL to tissue repair which occurs mostly at night in 3rd and particularly 4th stage sleep. the goal of treatment is not just to kill the virus but to see the liver repair itself. FOR SOME REASON Hepatitis can stop the pituitary from functioning. If this happens the disease progresses rapidly, and you feel far worse than your years with lots of odd ailments popping up. The test you need to ask for is called an IGF-1.
Avatar n tn If you are going to have the menometry done you should almost plan on spending a few days in the hospital. The risk for pancreatitis is high with menometry. Pancreatitis is very painful. I did get it, but I can tell you it was worth the pain. Anything to get rid of the pain I had been feeling for a year and a half. Every test I had prior to this came back normal. The Drs started thinking I was making up the pain. The pain was caused from the pressure in the duct.

Avatar n tn My MD was at a total loss as to what caused my original pain which returned as soon as my pancreatitis pain resolved. I was lucky in that the pancreatitis that was due to the ERCP resolved quickly. Still and all I was out of work for 3 weeks. Tracie, I hope you are feeling better. When did you first realize that something was wrong? You went home after your ERCP, right? Did you end up admitted through the ER?
1916673 tn?1420236870 But definitely consider stopping the Rimadyl and Tramadol, as these will affect the kidneys and potentially make the pancreatitis worse. Okay. There are quite a few things in my message that you need to talk to your vet about, so I'll leave you with them for the time being. Please get back if you have questions and/or after you have spoken with your vet.
Avatar f tn Reglan (metoclopromadine) is a very cheap medication, unfortunately, it is also metabolized in the kidneys, so a too high dose results in toxic levels in the blood. My husband and I discovered that completely bypassing the GI tract by using reglan injections worked much better in the end. Chica didn't get the extra pyramidal side effects (extreme restlessness, shaking and trembling) from the reglan injections that she got from the oral meds.
Avatar n tn hello everyone,i am in the united kingdom, this is my story last year i was 245lbs overweight and 43 years old,in september 2002 i went on a weight loss and fitness regime, by january 2003 i was down to 198lb perfect bodyfat and very fit,i have 5 children the youngest disabled so i figured i needed to do something about my level of fitness etc.
1318483 tn?1318350782 I know very little about it Addi but from the little I know isn't it usually dx in children and young adults due to the forming of the brain? From what little I know too, it is something that can be readily seen on an MRI. So, I am thinking it's not what you have since you have had MRI's w/none of this seen. As for your daugther, I am sorry, I don't know what the future holds but seems to me that dx is at least the first big step (you know how big a piece that is).
Avatar f tn A mixture of traditional medicinal treatment AND behavioural techniques can work slightly faster, as it puts a dog in a calmer place in his or her head to start with. However, there are no medications that are safe for the kidneys - sadly, all of them will adversely affect the kidneys to one degree or another. I have seen some miraculously good changes in sep anxiety dogs - but I have also seen dogs that do not respond well regardless of the input.
Avatar n tn It appears, however, that although this is common, no one has actually diagnosed this spasm. I thought it had something to do with having two children in the last 3 years. I even hired a personal trainer thinking I could work out the kink. Maybe it has something to do with the diet coke I consume. I will have to give my doctor a stab at solving this mystery and keep you all posted.
401095 tn?1351395370 Since 2000, when the Drug Addiction Treatment Act (DATA) was passed by Congress, patients with this serious, long-term disease may be treated right in a doctor’s office and through take-home prescriptions using Suboxone. Daily visits for treatment are not necessary after the patient’s dose has been established. In-office treatment with Suboxone offers patients privacy, convenience, and confidentiality. WHAT IS SUBOXONE?
Avatar f tn You need to have it checked because problems with the common bile duct or sphincter can result in problems with the pancreas and pancreatitis. This is NOT something that the doc should be allowed to gloss over in any manner. If your gallbladder contained sludge or stones, some of that substance could have 'escaped' into the bile duct during the surgery and it could be what's causing the current problems. Talk to your doc about checking you pancreatic enzymes and ask about having an MRCP done.
Avatar n tn However in ER the doctor did not diagnose it as pancreatitis - he said gastritis. I never had that strong pain again. Tests that were performed in last 6 months: -gastrocopy: normal -colonoscopy: normal -ultrasound: sludge-like deposits in gallbladder -gallbladder contraction test: contracts in 32% -CT scan: normal -MRI scan: normal -endoscopic ultrasound: normal, however the doctor said that my pancreas consistency is more solid than usually in my age -some blood tests showed bilirubin 1.
Avatar n tn I don't know how you manage as well as you do with three little ones and feeling so bad. Hang in there. If your doctor determines you have Pancreatitis perhaps that will get your doctor's appointment with GI doc moved up. Best of luck to you.

Avatar n tn don't harp on that in your mind. Most of us hope for dignity the end of our winter, in my opinion our companions do too. Don't allow that memory to over take you repeatedly, your companion deserves his or her dignity. Remember that. Of you do both of your spirits will learn to flourish.
1916673 tn?1420236870 Not positive if I've joined (also having trouble bookmarking blog); but hope I'm in. First time I've been back in a few weeks since I had to put Teagan to rest. To be honest I hope to NEVER need to refresh myself on the terrible disease. But, you all gave me such comfort when Teagan left me. I hope to keep reading posts to keep up with you all.
Avatar n tn he becomes aggresive when he drinks and has a total personality change,he has in the last three years had pancreatitis and diverticolitis,lately he has a problem getting out of bed in the morning My children and I are worried about his health, there is a history of alcohol abuse in his family,he forgets things that we tell him and repeats himself all the time. Should I be concerened?
Avatar m tn Your wife has tested positive for acute pancreatitis (I assume) by the ERCP's, in addition to her elevated amylase and lipase levels. It appears now her condition has gone to chronic pancreatitis, which often happens after one or more acute attacks. The same tests are used to determine this, but very often blood tests are inaccurate in determining chronic pancreatitis as the enzymes no longer elevate with an attack due to the damage already done to the pancreas.
