My son has had end stage renal failure for a few years and is incredibly ill and extremely weak desing regular dialysis. he has also just been diagnosed with Chronic Pancreatitis after weeks of investigations to try and work out why he has lost most of his body weight and has been unable to eat anything at all along with other sympotoms of vomitting diarrhea and constant pain. Before being diagnosed with chronic pancreatitis he was already sufferining immensely and had talked about dying and that he has had enough of feeling so ill and that he felt he was dying and he was ready to die. Now with this added condition which we know little about i worry for him. We had hoped that once they got to the bottom of what was going on he would make some recovery and start to feel better however having read some of the stories on here i now fear the worst.....I take it from these stories that the level of pain he is experiencing is an ongoing effect of the condition that does not improve very much even with the morphine he is on. He currently has a drain that is removing a bloody fluid from his stomach but Doctors havent mentioned anything about pseudocysts so im confused as to what the blood is. I dont know what to say to my son when he asks if he would be better off dead..... how do i answer that ? he has suffered so so much and is soooo tired of trying to fight this losing battle.....Im heartbroken and at a loss as to what i can say to reasure him. Does anyone have any advice or comments or suggestions that may help. My son is aged 33yrs and has not drank alcohol for 10years and dcotors say they dont know the cause of his pancreatitis. Please help!
