Well my Husband went for his check up a few weeks ago, which was interesting. After a recent CT scan as an outpatient, the results have come back saying the the Pancreas now has no evidence of Acute Pancreatitis. No damage, which is great. A bit confusing though as we were first told it was badly damaged?
The Doctor them went on to say that Hubby can now go back to eating normally as we have been so careful as not to eat fat, milk etc.
He then read the notes again and said 'this is interesting, you have sludge on your Gallbladder'. Apparently this was showing on the previous CT Scan when Hubby was admitted into Hospital, but we weren't told about this at the time? Surely this should have been brought to our attention?
So the Doctor then said 'actually, don't change your diet, carry on with the low fat, dairy etc as I think we need to remove your Gallbladder so we have no repeats of your Acute Pancreatitis'. It was put down as an Urgent Operation.
So we are now waiting for a date, but with everything that's going on at the moment, I think this could be a while.
So for now, we are in limbo. Was the Pancreatitis caused by the Gallbladder? Why weren't we told about the sludge before? What does 'no evidence of Acute Pancreatitis' mean?
One more thing, recently the last couple of weeks, my Hubby has been having extremely large stools and has trouble passing them sometimes. He's eating lots of food and has a great appetite. Does he still need to take his Creon if the Pancreas is OK? Unfortunately, 2 doctors I've spoken to don't seem to have the answers?
Thanks in advance
