Fitzy, the only med I've been given for my pancreatitis issue is Greon, a pancreatic enzyme. While this is not a cure (there isn't one)
it is supposed to rest the pancreas, at the moment it's working some.
The other med I take is tricor, which was keeping my triglycerides at a more sensible level of about 160. While I was on Humira they
went up to nearly 2000. So obviously, the other meds were of no use. Bummer.
I guess the real outcome of all of this, is that I will go back to having a bad time with both conditions!! Meanwhile I'm trying to enjoy
this respite of one of them. The stupid thing is, that both diseases cause very similar symptoms ie: stinky diarrhea (with fat) malabsorption,
and pain, although the pain does differ and are felt in different areas. So at least I know which one is active and which one is not, Sometimes
I get lucky, and it's both!!!!
Thanks guys for your kind words and encouragement, I don't know where I would be now (mentally) if I didn't have you. So for me you are
