Karen, the list is quite lengthy as to what chronic pancreatitis does or can do. I had to google it to find out for myself.
unfortunately like we all know we end up scaring ourselves. It can be quite unpleasant!
As far as meds go, I was only taking prednisone as I've had bad reaction to most of the usual meds like 6mp, imuran, remicade,
that I cant take them, nor does he want me to try humira. He even wants me off pred for awhile, because it;s messing with my
bones. I think he wants to rule out other possibilities, as he says things are not adding up, but he also said we could go full circle
back to crohn's, then we discuss where to go from there. He's also concerned that I'm not absorbing nutrients as I should be, that
could be down to short bowel syndrome. I guess I have a couple of months of testing. I really hope he can at least make me feel
a little better.
Gail, thanks for your good wishes, I really could do with them right now.LOL
