Blood work 2 weeks ago showed slightly elevated pancreatic enzymes. I repeated blood work on Monday and just got the letter that everything was a-ok. My nurse included a little note that said "Great News!" I am so relieved. Just didn't want to deal w/ another problem. I am still having occasional bouts of pain but I really think it is a gerd issue.

Just wanted to share my news!!!
