Hi everyone, my name is Pete and I am 36 years old. I live in the UK and I have suffered with pancreatitis now for nearly half my life! Since I was 20 actually. It was assumed at the time, that it was due to alcohol but having spoken to many, many consultants and specialists over the years, the idea that I could have brought this horrible disease upon myself at such an early age is not a popular opinion by any means. It is now presumed that it was purely idiopathic or in other words, no known cause or reason.
Anyway, I have just signed onto this site and as I have said to a lady called Wendy, should anyone have any questions about pancreatitis...whether it be about medications or symptoms or problems when in hospital or just a general chat, I am more than happy to try and help anyone should they ask 😊 as I have had it now for so long, I feel as though I am able to try to help anyone with this horrible condition or even people whose loved ones have it. So please feel free to reply to this and I will try and reply as soon as I possibly can.
Hope you are all keeping as well as can be expected.
