The reason I ask is over the past year my husband has had blood tests showing normal. Upper endoscopy and lower colostomy endoscopy which showed a duodenal ulcer. Now cleared. He had a ct scan and mri which showed a pseudo cyst in the head of his pancreas. He then had an ultrasound endoscopy which showed no pancreatic cancer and they drained the cyst. On the letter they put acute or earlchronic pancreatitis ???? as they weren't 100% sure. He saw the gastroloist in December who said chronic pancreatitis. No medication has been given and they have never mentioned lipase levels like I've seen in other posts. He's had vomiting, loose stools, constipationover time at varing levels. Over this weekend he had severe pain. He went to A & E and has been admitted with appendicitis. Confirmed by ct scan. A dr previously said a few months baxk that he thought my husband had grumbling appendix. Has anyone heard of this happening and been wrongly diagnosed with chronic pancreatitis for it to be appendicitis or is that wishful thinking on my part. X
