I had pancreatitis 3xs following surgery and my drs and the anesthegists all insisted that it was not related to the surgeries; mine was after sinus, knee and abdominal. I had every test done possible, have never smoked or drank.
I finally had exploratory surgery done and was full of adhesions and scar tissue; my stomach was in a ball adhered to my chest cavity, my liver was adhered to my ribs. Once everything was released I haven't had pancreatitis since and I have had 3 surgeries since including my subtotal last July. It did take a long time for my stomach to get back to "normal" and I still have nausea issues so I have to take zofran. So I don't really know if it was surgery related or adhesion related.
I know that it was the worst pain in my entire life and each time I was hospitalized for long periods of time. Are you in the hospital now?
I wish you the best and hope you feel better soon.
