Common Questions and Answers about Pancreatitis vs pancreatic cancer symptoms


902019 tn?1249865014 I've only ever had mild pancreatic pain - which is often the case with AIP vs chronic pancreatitis. Main problem is biliary obstruction if my LFTs spike. Keep well and pls keep me posted.
Avatar f tn pancreatic cancer , pancreatiits, or gallstones? My dad did die of pancreatic cancer, hence all the EUS I have had.
436191 tn?1256649906 Patients with a normal ejection fraction and absence of symptoms from a HIDA scan can still have excellent relief of symptoms after LC. DISCUSSION LC is an effective treatment for biliary tract disease related to gallstones, with resolution of symptoms obtained in approximately 95% of patients (2). The reported resolution of symptoms following cholecystectomy for acalculous gallbladder disease is likewise high, ranging from 82% to 100% (4-14).
Avatar f tn With the gallbadder absent, individual stones can't get very large, if that sludge gets thick enough to slow down the flow of bile from the liver, the symptoms of pain and even nausea/ vomiting can return. If your symptoms get worse after you eat, that would be a logical place to start looking. If your pain is in the lower right quadrant, you may be looking at a hot appendix.
Avatar f tn Its about 2 inches up from my belly button then 1 1/2 inches left. I am so fearful its my pancreas. My father died of pancreatic cancer. My fear is my other symptoms (which I think can also be symptoms of untreated diabetes) are due to this. I would think that anything with the pancreas whether diabetes or worse would have the same issues on the nerves.
Avatar n tn (1986) I am reading up on all the posts here and have no idea if I had a simple ERCP or more extensice as i did not suffer any pancreatitis symptoms although I have heard that Odie attacks are just as severe. What triggers my attacks is pain meds, i.e. codeine and all related drugs that have codeine in them, and bascially all narcotic pain meds.
Avatar f tn I'm sorry but I disagree with your comment. As I said earlier, I'm not a doctor and I know next-to-nothing about medicine but even I know that it can be dangerous to hold onto a non-functioning gallbladder.
Avatar n tn ALP started to increase at this point. His sugars went up and he went on insulin. He was showing pancreatitis symptoms and started a clear diet. Ct showed mildly enlarged liver and normal pancreatic contour with increasing periportal. My poor husband could barely get up the stairs at the end of the day. He soon became jaundiced and had ercp which showed CBD narrowed. Stent was put in. ALT,AST.GGTelevated with climbing ALP.
Avatar n tn Ugh, don't say pancreas! I have had myself terrified that I have pancreatic cancer! My ultrasound said my pancreas was well visualized and had a normal appearance. I hope that counts for something! I'd say things started a month or so ago..started with the stomach feeling hungry and diarrhea. A week or so after that I started with the pain in my ribs…I had been painting my house and thought I hurt myself for about a week….
Avatar n tn I am getting really tired of this in a quick hurry. I hope you get better really soon, what are the symptoms of pancreatitis? I hope they find out your problem soon. Take care.
Avatar f tn Hi. As a person with cirrhosis, first I went through all the stages of grief, including therapy that included "How to live when you are dieting" , but have not accepted this condition because I don';t want it. To that end, I began my research and found out that cannabis (yup, that evil weed) was used to treat cirrhosis, before the FDA and Rockefeller at al began the fabricated stories of the drug called marijuana.
Avatar m tn Prilosec has made these symptons bearable and has helped relieved them to some degree, however still have some of the above symptoms and gassiness. In truth, I never really felt that I had classic traditional heartburn or had problems eating certain foods, such as I could eat spicy foods and not have much change in my symptoms.
280891 tn?1261016650 why don't we hear more about it on the eveing news? why do we not know that the higher the animal products consumption the higher the cancer rate ( of all cancers)..why do we still continue to hear on the news that cancer has gotten better in certain areas of the body when only they are manipulating the statistics to "look" as if it has...why is the American Cancer Society telling people the wrong information and getting away with it STILL!
Avatar m tn increased or painful urination; severe stomach pain (with or without vomiting); symptoms of thyroid cancer (eg, lump or swelling in the neck, trouble swallowing, shortness of breath, persistent hoarseness)
181575 tn?1250202386 He explained to you that if you fight them with medium-sized arrows they will find a way to escape the arrows. He then says that at that point you switch to bigger arrows. Problem is that the virus already knows about arrows and before too long they can figure out that these are the same arrows...just bigger. They can find a way to escape the larger ones too. Then, your quiver is empty.
940391 tn?1255758976 Glad your nodules are ok - yes there a many many reasons other than cancer for nodules. And I had read somewhere if you took a bus load of people and did a CT Scan on them - lots would have lung nodules! But it doesn't ease the fear - I had a repeat CT yesterday - going to the doctor tomorrow for the results........... I haven't slept well since these darn nodules were discovered during a CT for other reasons. I hope all of us are ok and just have benign nodules........Hugs, Julie........
Avatar n tn A couple of calls and speaking to the head vet, he promised to come down and collect our dog, This was at 12 O'clock, He was collected at 5PM, They said they thought it was advanced Pancreatic Cancer, On Thursay Moring at 7am, we got a call to say he survived the night but between the hours of 6am and 7am he had died. He suffered greatly waiting for the vet to collect him. Dry wretching and vomiting passing blood during the day.
233616 tn?1312790796 I don't know how familiar you are with the term bioidentical hormones, but I was on them before any of my docs other patients, long before susan summers or oprah discovered them medical research had proved the differences in all the identicals vs. synthrtic subs. there is a letter writing campaign for compassionate use of teleprevir now in here, you may want to join in that.
Avatar n tn this subject has come up several times recently, check the threads dated 12/14 by doubledose(SVRs, post tx....), 12/13 by Layla(post tx...) and 12/11 by Jonihs(for those who finished....). There might be some mention within other threads of post tx sides, but the threads mentioned might give you a good headstart of other svrs that have checked in and commented already, while you wait for answers here.
Avatar f tn The calcium binds to phosphorus which is deadly to those in renal failure. As you already know, nothing can cure this disease, so all you can do is manage the symptoms as best you can. If you can stand it, check out the several journal articles I wrote on my profile here at Med Help regarding Chica and our "adventure" with end-stage renal failure. You and your husband are doing the same things we did, and your Sandy Grace sounds like the exact same temperament as our Chica.
