Had a case of acute pancreatitis in November, 2018.
Was hospitalized for five days.
Lipase was at 17,000 (not a typo). (The HIGH end of normal lipase is around 180).
CT scan revealed two "communicating" pseudocysts at the tail of pancreas.
G.I. doc suggested a cholecystectomy.
Had it done four months later in March, 2019.
Pathology said no biliary calculi were found.
Follow up CT scan revealed that the pseudocysts had shrunk by 1/3.
All other health parameters are within normal limits.
I am a 68-year-old male, in relatively good health.
Question: Why do I STILL have slight pains every so often?
Is it possible that I could still be convalescing ten months later after the initial bout of acute pancreatitis?
More importantly, why do I have halitosis so badly?
It isn't a question of poor oral hygiene.
It SEEMS to be a question of gut health.
Thanks in advance.
