pancreatitis

Avatar n tn I have had terrible pain in my front right & left ribs & in my sides that wraps about midways in my back somethime under both shoulderblades on both sides for the last 2 years after eating with weight loss that has leveled off some. I have had one mild elevation of Amylase around 135 at the beggining of 2006. I had high triglycerides which are now normal.I have had continual elevations of Lipase around 320 throughout the last 2 years.
902019 tn?1249865014 I was diagnosed 2 years ago with AIP, have a 25 year history of autoimmune disorders (eosinophilic vasculitis, mild Sjogren's). 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 Pho, I wrote about my history and results of a CT scan a few days ago - the CT scan showed the presence of a hypodense lesion with signs of acute pancreatitis and an enlarged retroperitoneal lymph node (10 mm). The radiologist diagnosed the lesion as a pancreatic pseudocyst, but suggested further imaging to rule out cystic neoplasms. I went to a GI specialist at a leading University hospital, who looked at the images and concurred with the view of the radiologist.
960887 tn?1283485836 A few dogs need an even more sophisticated level of diagnostic workup, such as an adrenal gland function test or abdominal ultrasound. At 8 years old, it seemed unlikely that “dietary indiscretion” would be a likely cause of Dozer’s gastrointestinal problems. Much higher on the list were conditions such as cancer, immune-system disease, pancreatitis, liver failure or kidney failure. Dozer seemed uncomfortable and somewhat tense when I palpated his abdomen, but did not appear overtly painful.
Avatar f tn Sometimes pc can be mistaken for chroinc pancreatitis. (not to mention chronic pancreatitis usually happens in older people and to people who abuse alcohol for a long time...I'm 31 and rarely drink!!!) The CT is one of the best tests to diagnose pc. I think the only one that may be better is an Endoscopic Ultrasound. Just yesterday I spoke to my GP and asked if I would be out of line to ask for a second opinion on my CT images.
Avatar n tn Sometimes a KUB may reveal a calcified kidney stone that has passed into the ureter and resulted in referred abdominal pain or calcifications in the pancreas that suggests chronic pancreatitis. Radiographic studies. Abdominal ultrasound is useful in diagnosing gallstones, cholecystitis appendicitis, or ruptured ovarian cysts as the cause of the pain.
Avatar n tn The indigestion improved a bit but I continued to have a burning pain on my left side around the area of the spleen that roams from front left part of the rib cage to the left side. My doctor then order an Ultrasound and it came back normal for all organ with the exception of a mildly enlarged spleen (13.3). He did some extensive blood work (CBC, Differential, Metabolic Panel, Amylase, Lypase etc...) and it all came back normal.
Avatar f tn How Is Pancreatitis Treated? Treatment for acute pancreatitis People with acute pancreatitis are treated with IV fluids and pain medications in the hospital. In up to 25% of patients, the pancreatitis can be severe and patients may need to be admitted to an intensive care unit (ICU). In the ICU, the patient is closely watched because pancreatitis can damage the heart, lungs, or kidneys. Some cases of severe pancreatitis can result in death of pancreatic tissue.

Avatar f tn Then the discharge nurse hands my husband a print out with images from the EUS which clearly shows a Cyst measured at 3cm x .52cm?!? Is that considered nothing? I understand that is considered a small cyst but given all the pain I have been experiencing as well as other symptoms? To the best of my knowledge no FNA was performed. According to my doctor, I could not have been having attacks of pancreatitis; so I have wonder where the cyst came from?
Avatar n tn The above suggestion by Dr Kev of an endoscopic ultrasound is also a very good idea. The images are far superior to those produced by standard ultrasound. I would also have some stool testing done for malapsorption, etc. I'd have my thyroid and glucose levels checked too. Both of your cts give an indication that there are some things that i would want to be followed up because they may ( or may not) have the potential to cause problems in the future.
Avatar n tn I'm a 52 year old woman in excellent health except for this problem that began Aug. 2004 after vacation in Mexico. It started with an ache in my left side below rib cage & change in bowel movements. I am frequently constipated, crampy in lower abdomen, sore in upper abdomen & every bm has a lot of mucus. In the last 3 months, the condition worsened & now I have excessive gas, bloating & 3-6 bm's per day, usually within 15-30 minutes after eating.
Avatar n tn Im 35 and had my gallbladder removed 2 weeks ago when i was 14 weeks pregnant,after months of being in terrible agony one of the stones lodged itself in my pancreas duct resulting in me having acute pancreatitis so there was no option but to remove the gallbladder incase this happened again,the surgeon told me that there might have been a chance of early labour which would have resulted in miscarriage but he was only doing his job and had to explain the pros and cons of surgery.
Avatar m tn It was reported few times on this forum, that ultrasound showed nothing, but CT did. Ultrasound is really not good for these "borderline" issues. It can show fairly large stones, sometimes sludge, but not always. I think, you should have MRCP, and ask GI, if this MRCP would also show eventual sludge or stones in gallbladder.

Avatar f tn Other than you being 19, I have no idea why the docs haven't check you for gall bladder problems, you present all the classic symptoms. Demand that they check it out, ultrasound to check for stones, HIDA scan for gall bladder function.
Avatar f tn Stenting for another year? wow does he get pancreatitis when they stent him? You might have told me but i dont remember. My days have been ok. very tired today, been alseep alot. pain is mild still watching what i eat hoping that keeps the attacks away. I wish i liked veggies but i have to say not a big fan, like corn,green beans,peas, potatos that's about it.
Avatar n tn multiple labs, CBC with differential, c reactive protein, sed rate, two lyme disease tiders, a comprehensive western blot lyme test, two HIV tests, multiple blood tests for muscle enzymes and functions, EMG muscle testing, MRI of brain (which revealed slight abnormality which neuro said was consistent with CFS or lyme), test for Lupus, rheumatoid panel, allergy test (blood test), CT scan of everything from base of lungs down (due to constipation and tenderness above groin area), and echocardiog
Avatar n tn Pain under the left shoulder blade can be a signal that there is a problem with the stomach or other abdominal structures (ulcers, pancreatitis, ectopic pregnancy) or in the chest (myocardial infarction [heart attack], pericarditis, pleuritis, pneumonia, pulmonary embolus, aortic dissection)." Has anyone been given a diagnosis related to internal organs are opposed to muscular pain?
181575 tn?1250202386 Until recently, the preferred method for HCC screening included both liver ultrasound examination and measurement of serum alpha-fetoprotein (AFP). However, recent guidelines question the utility of AFP monitoring in HCC screening. Using 20 ng/mL as a cutoff value for abnormal AFP levels, serum AFP has a sensitivity of only 60%. Liver ultrasound exam has a sensitivity ranging between 65% and 80% and a specificity of more than 90% for the detection of HCC.
Avatar n tn Check out Acute Pancreatitis. A lot of the symptoms are similar. I am awaiting results of blood tests. Will update once I have more info.
