My brother in law was diagnosed with acute pancreatitis along with liver disease about 4 month agoThat's all I know because no other information was provided because I'm not immediate family this information was from him. This is what I know. He only drinks at night. Ussually about 6 beer and 6 hard drinks mon-Sunday and that's a easy going night for him. He's kept up that pace for about 19 years. I believe he's not telling me everything but this is what I see. Constant abdominal pain that has seen to weakened since his last two hospitalization. Extreme OCD with panic attacks, loss of memory, mood swings, constant restroom stops, jaunice or eyes with almost veiny like appearance to them,spooning of nails both hands and feet, he can't eat too much because he gets too full or the pain flairs up, it's hard to tell if his skin is yellow because of the Asian skin, he complains about diarrhea, always tired and as of lately his nose gets red when he drinks, his hands oddly look like rubber and has re rashes around his ankles and elbows. Works out a lot and drinks tons of water. Few years ago he lost his wife and has two kids. My wife and I have done our best to fill in and help with the kids. My wife and I are 100% committed to taking care of the little ones no matter what happens. Trying to stop him from drinking has failed over and over, to the point that my wife and I only fight about his drinking and at times ruined our relationship not to mention every trip or dinner is about if they have alcohol or not or else nobody can go anywhere. I understand it's hard to know how far along he is without results or lab test but I cannot get that information. But what else can be done??I fear that with the symptoms we may not have him around much longer. I have done research every night but they all have the same symptoms. From cancer to liver failure it all sounds the same. The frustrating part at times is that from website to website the information seems to be different. I don't think I'm being told the truth about his health from him which would not surprise me. Sometimes listening to other peoples suggestions helps a lot. Thank you in advance.
