Thanks, your response is encouraging. My lipase levels have always been over normal but they attributed that to the crohn's disease. It was well over the mark when I went in this time.
I've been on Imuran in the past, azathoprine a few times and then again was put on it in Dec while in the hospital. I got really sick and asked them to take me off it. I never could stay on these drugs for long, always got sick with this family of drugs.
I went in for dehydration, so was a little surprised to hear about my pancreas.
Wish there was something to prevent further damage or more stones?
They didn't tell me in the hospital to eat low fat, Although I've never been able to tolerate rich stuff (deep fried and greasy stuff)
They were trying to fatten me up because I lost so much weight. I appreciated the double gravy they would send. That, I could eat, LoL.
Isn't the Creon supposed to help with breaking down of the the fats in foods?
I've noticed that my ostomy output now looks a lot smoother and more broken down than before, which was either straight fluid or very chunky as in losing unabsorbed foods.
However, one of their meds are giving me terrible heartburn/reflux which
I had under control before with Prevacid. They put me on pantoprazole, saying that it was a better one to take with CREON? So far, not for me?
Anyway, thank you for the encourgement, hopefully it will be as you say and the stones will break up on their own.
