Hello,
 
 
Am wondering if anyone has ever been diagnosed with an enlarged pancreatic duct before.
 
Over the last 3-4 weeks have constantly had yellow coloured stools or diarhea (j-pouch surgery 15 years ago). My local doctor sent us off for an ultra sound which came back with a dilated pancreatic duct (3mm).
This seemed to get the local doc pretty excited and he phoned my GI straight away to get me seen to asap. Hopefully I will be able to see the Gi some time this week.
 
Has any one else ever had this reading.
My local has ruled out gall stones as there is no pain and also said that it is not pancreatitus. The only other alternative I can find is that it is a pre cursor to pancreatic cancer. Im sure there would be another possibility. Has anyone else been in a similar position?
 
Thanks,
Pottsy scool
