August 30 a year ago my roommate called 911 I'm 61 years old and they found out I had acute pancreatitis they were very rude in the hospital and could see my records from seven years ago that I had been admitted to another hospital for three weeks because I did used to Drink and a damaged my pancreas .( I have a sense of humor but most people are winos and California ) they told me to go home rest drink plenty of fluids and take painkillers or if I really wanted to I could stay there a week and they would give me pain medication and IVs it was my choice I opted out of the hospital as a matter of principle . Finally had a special test done in January and they found out I have pancreatic stones with in my pancreas . Had another attack that was bad after my mother died in April went to the hospital was there for six hours in the ER they totally dismissed me took no scans nothing and said they didn't know what my problem was and released to me . I've been under a ton of stress and just moved on Sun. And had to Classic symptoms of immediate vomiting the next day stomach pain taking pain medication every two hours it was so bad and vomiting the next day long story short I'm at a loss I've lost two jobs now because I do caregiving work, retail on weekends and work for the county I live in as a substitute special ed teacher and they don't care they just label me as being sick all the time . I got up and drove to meet with my boss on Thursday was feeling weak and tired and had to leave because I started throwing up on the way home again . And my positive mind I'm going to have to start job hunting and yesterday did a simple task of trying to go to the grocery store and came back and almost passed out from the exhaustion , just to make sure I had fruit juices on hand plenty of water some applesauce the regular stuff and my own Gastro Doctor Who is a complete moron just keeps telling me to go to the ER and they do nothing . I sent a message to my regular Doctor Who is great and he started me on Creon to take three times a day with food has anyone ever heard of it I just started it yesterday ? And 2000 mg of vitamin D but I'm still exhausted . Now that I moved in and settled is it realistic to think another week or two for recovery I know I wrote a lot and I'm new to this group but I really need peer support I have no one . Everyone I talk to just keep saying G I hope you feel better and I have a lot of pain on my left side but I think that's because my hip and back are so bad . I'm alone with no spouse or any support system and I really don't think the doctors care or know what they're talking about I'm hoping to Creon and vitamin D works but my question is , at my mall job which is all I have right now should I be honest and tell them no work this week I truthfully think I need one week of complete rest and then I may start to feel better . I'm a cancer survivor twice other parts of my body breast and lymph nodes so I worry
