As you may remember, I was diagnosed with CP, following 2 attacks of acute pancreatitis, after taking 6mp.
My problem is, that after going from web site, to web site to find out about this condition, I found one written by
a doctor and he gave the prognosis of only 50% of patients survive for 7 years following their Dx. I knew it was
a pretty tough disease, but wasn't really prepared to see those kind of figures. I know I'm doing all I can to reduce
the symptoms, but my own body is working against me, by producing high triglycerides, known to be detrimental
to the pancreas.
My other problem (whine) is that my family don't want to talk about it. Almost like if we ignore it, it'll go away, but
this is eating away at me. I know they all love me & they are scared, but I need to talk about the what if's. I'm scared
I've already had to start taking greon ( pancreatic enzymes) to help rest my pancreas, but it seems, like it's daily now,
that the pain seems to be getting worse...
Guys I'm so sorry to sound so morbid, but I really needed to talk. Thanks as always for being there......
