Avatar f tn Correction: Gall bladder pancreatitis should be gall stone pancreatitis
Avatar n tn from years of worrying), match up quite a bit with chronic pancreatitis. I am not experiencing weight loss or diarrhea. I'm going to call my Gastroenterologist to see if I can get squeezed in. But, naturally, I'm terrified. Can any other illnesses also come across with these symptoms? Also, medscape has those depressing mortality figures. It sounds like I'm dead meat if I have this. One article said there is no treatment yet I hear of people who end up having surgeries.
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 n tn Unlike HIV, successful hepatitis C treatment can result in viral clearance. The main goal of treatment is a sustained virologic response, when HCV remains undetectable six months after completion of therapy. More than 85% of people who have achieved an sustained virologic response remain free of HCV five years after completion of therapy. Secondary goals of treatment include normalization of liver enzymes and improvement in liver inflammation and fibrosis.
Avatar n tn from years of worrying), match up quite a bit with chronic pancreatitis. I am not experiencing weight loss or diarrhea, although last summer when I ate a lot of rich foods like New England Clam chowder and scallops, I had a diarrhea attack, but I did not have abdominal pain. I figure a lot of people can have the runs from a meal like that. I'm going to call my Gastroenterologist to see if I can get squeezed in. I'm going to be urgent on the phone.
Avatar n tn Despite that in the research I've seen it says only about 20% of patients who undergo the ERCP and sphincterotomy get pancreatitis, the super specialist in SF said in his experience he would say the number is more like 50%. He says if my mom got pancreatitis she would be in the more horrible pain imaginable and that she would "wish she had her old pain back." So hearing that doesn't exactly make he anxious to do it. The past few months have been a roller coaster.
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.

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 The pancreas is found in the abdomen, where it helps to regulate the amount of glucose--a type of sugar that is naturally found in the body--in a person's blood. It also aids in digestion. Autoimmune pancreatitis is marked by inflammation of the pancreas. Identification Autoimmune pancreatitis is a chronic condition. Chronic means that the condition lasts for a long period of time, sometimes even years.
Avatar f tn There are a number of things which can cause bloated stomach....liver problems, heart problems, pancreatitis, internal bleeding....and other things. He needs to be checked out properly. I the cause is found, then if any treatment is started, it should help him regain his appetite naturally I hope there is some improvement soon.
Avatar f tn Pancreatitis recovery My shih tzu was diagnosed with pancreatitis a month ago. She is 2yrs old. She only vomitted once and loose stool and lipase elevatef to 2600. Amylase was below normal. She is on Crean10000 every after meals. May I know how do i know if my baby is fully recovered. Is taking Creon a guarantee for me that her lipase and pancreas are safe now? She is on lowfat prescription diet. Thanks!
Avatar n tn Why should a young person get surgery and have to remove their gallblader? Is surgery the only alternative to treatment? Will gallblader burst and kill you if you have stones? Please advise.
Avatar f tn The last 2 years have been the worst and it seems now that I can not digest good naturally. My fear now comes from the fact that laxatives, and other digestive remedies, are not working. I have a piercing pain under my left rib cage - I feel like I haven't felt well or nomral in months. I'm constantly feeling like I have the flu bug, due to aches and pains, abnormal body temperature and this horrible 'side ache.
Avatar n tn I lost my first dog to pancreatitis and he had the same symptoms as your dog. It's an extremely painful condition and very difficult and expensive to treat. The only blessing here is that your dog was spared a great deal of suffering and took a difficult decision out of your hands. The only way to know for certain what happened is a full postmortem exam if the blood work doesn't confirm pancreatitis.
Avatar m tn Sorry about being so blunt but I am a little concerned I noticed that periodically I have yellow bowel movements and should I be concerned I have been in treatment know on 95 th week and one more to go!
Avatar n tn Do these symptoms sound like pancreatic cancer or maybe pancreatitis? Anyone else have problem with pancreas that could possibly shed any light on these symptoms? Does a problem with the pancreas hit all at once, or a slow degeneration? Again, what results should I zero in on for potential problems with the pancreas? Thanks for any replies.
264121 tn?1313033056 I have been in the hospital no less than 20 times since October 2007, AND I have had big time stomach issues for the past several months that I think are due to either a valve that doesn't close all the way or chronic pancreatitis. That's what I think. So they need to put me into th hosp and try to see what the deal is (endoscopy is normal save for gastritis). So they let me go last week after only a 24 hour admit because the endoscopy was normal except that this has HELPED NOTHING.
Avatar n tn NO, YOU ACTUALLY DO NOT NEED YOUR GALLBLADDER. AND IF YOU HAVE A SICK GALLBLADDER AND DECIDE TO KEEP IT YOU CAN END UP WITH PANCREATITIS.. THE DRS I WORK FOR DO THESE DAILY..ITS DONE THROUGH A SCOPE AND TAKES NO LONGER THAN 30-45MINS TO DO.....
698356 tn?1240154327 Wish I still could - it was the only thing that would dull the joint and muscle pain. Unfortunately the pancreatitis caused by the surgery to repair the scar tissue in my bile ducts (thanks RAI) ended that. Have I mentioned how much I enjoy the never-ending saga of cancer complications.
258127 tn?1223128840 I have trouble falling asleep, and when I do fall asleep, I seem to spend most of the night having lucid dreams and then have trouble waking in the morning (even if I let myself naturally wake up, I still feel lethargic) I have a nodular rash on my foot (which recently spread to my hand) that has tiny clear fluid filled pustules that burst easily and leave tiny pin sized holes and don't seem to be responding to cortisone...
Avatar f tn They are caused by too little stomach acid and bacterial overgrowth in the stomach and intestines. Therefore successful treatment is based on restoring adequate stomach acid production and eliminating bacterial overgrowth. This can be accomplished by following the “three Rs” of treating heartburn and GERD naturally: 1. Reduce factors that promote bacterial overgrowth and low stomach acid. 2. Replace stomach acid, enzymes and nutrients that aid digestion and are necessary for health. 3.
Avatar n tn I'm not yet on treatment, but I have taken Ambien in the past and I've found it to be a wonder drug. I never had any problems sleeping until I was a little freaked out after I was diagnosed. Ambien just knocked me out into a deep sleep....with no hangover. It's weird, after exactly 7/8 hours, the Ambien just STOPS working and you're UP. At least that's how it worked with me.
7052683 tn?1392942395 I am beginning to feel like I just want her to progress with No Pain to her natural life expectancy--we feel she is probably 12 years old and has had a wonderful loving life, and I always said I would do everything in my power to make sure she would not be placed under any excess stress to resolve additional ailments.
Avatar n tn I've been through a lot with this dog - shunt operation, loss of spleen, back disc causing lameness, and pancreatitis. With each ailment, I did the best research and gave him the absolute care. I even found an acupuncure vet that got him walking again. With the heart problem, I did do some research and all of it pointed to these meds. I read about herbs, too, but didn't consider them because my dog is so finicky... I knew it would be hard just to get him to take all the prescribed pills!
436837 tn?1293796826 thing is natural, or whether he has a problem. Dogs, being naturally stoical, can make it hard for us to distinguish sometimes, if there's a problem going on or not. A really good way to tell if there are any underlying health problems is to get the vet to run a Senior Blood Panel on him. This will give a pretty comprehensive view of his general health, kidney and liver function, etc, and give a chance of getting early treatment should any issues show up.
Avatar n tn also placed a temporary stent in the pancreatic duct to prevent post-ERCP pancreatitis. I did get the pancreatitis but I was told that it was mild. I only stayed for 3 days in the hospital. It has been 3 weeks yesterday, since my procedure, and I am finally pain free. I can only speak from experience and say that it was a rough road to recovery. I don't know if this procedure will "cure" all my pain in the future. Only time will tell.
Avatar f tn I have an ~18 year old terrier mix rescue dog who developed chronic kidney disease--stage 2, about 2 weeks after an episode of acute pancreatitis—now about 7 weeks ago. He had been on metacam for degenerative joint disease (elbow, spine, hips) for about 2 years, so we have been monitoring his blood work at least every 6 months. His creatinine had been creeping up slowly, but entered the abnormal zone at 1.
Avatar m tn who was recently diagnosed with a 'septated ovarian cyst.' My first symptom was my period was late - naturally I assumed I was pregnant and began taking urine tests - all coming back negative. After two weeks I began having abdominal cramping and attributed this to my period coming. The pain then became severe - localizing in my right lower abdomen. As an RN, I began to think it was my appendix or an ectopic pregnancy and took myself to the ER.
Avatar f tn On a desperate whim last time I took a muscle relaxer I had leftover from something else and it seemed to help, but by that time it had already been a few hours so the episode could have been winding down naturally. I have noticed that it seems to happen more when I am slightly dehydrated and tired. Alcohol is almost a guarantee, wine being the worst, but that is easy enough to avoid.
Avatar n tn The GYN says there is nothing to worry about. I am always bloated and have mild pelvic pain, naturally he blames it on IBS, Irritable Bowel Syndrome. Because I made such a fuss he said he could go in and see if there is any scar tissue, take out my ovaries and send them to Pathology, but he wants to wait six months to see if the number goes up. I guess I should be seeing a GYN Oncologist, I asked for the CA 125, I just have had the feeling something is not right.
