Saw the GI yesterday, told him about my fears of chronic pancreatitis. He told me that they will keep a close eye
on me,in fact, he's referring me to a specialist. He told me that, the biggest threat, which can happen to about 1 in 5
is pancreatic cancer, the other is insulin dependent diabetes. For the inflammation, there are various enzymes that
they can try on me. So not all doom & gloom!!
I do however, have to go back on Humira. He says that my CD is still active, and he thinks the benefits are going to
out weigh the risk to my liver and pancreas. I have to have 6weeks worth & then see him again. If there's no improvement
he will scope me again, and we will go from there.
So thats my update. I'm feeling a little better....
