My father suffered from Chronic Pancreatitis. He developed it in his late 50's. He doctor thought is wasf tylenol over use in combination with moderate drinking.He did suffer greatly from abdominal pain. I know his doctor had him change his diet to a low fat/no fat diet. I am not sure if that helped. He did end up with stents in the vial duct which helped to relieve the pain.
I am so sorry that you have received this diagnosis. I do know from my father's experience it is associated with pain, so I would make sure that you find a good Pain Management Specialist to help you. Regular physicians usually are not that experienced in chronic pain management and there is no reason you should suffer unnecessarily.
Please keep us posted as to what is going on. Good luck.
