So I've posted before bout some troubles I had been having for a few years which was always brushed off by the docs as acid reflux.
I I just went to a new gastro doc who did a fecal fat test which came back saying I had a lot of fat in my stools. He has diagnosed me with EPI and I'm supposed to start taking creon.
I'm scared now to tell you the truth. I've done some reading and noticed that EPI usually doesn't occcur until late in CP or when a large amount of damage has been done to the pancreas.
I just don't understand. I had a Ct scan with contrast done in February of 2017 that showed a normal pancreas. I have been drinking since then. Occasionally heavy at times, but nothing too ridiculous. I'm just trying to understand how my pancreas could have went from fine on scans to not working at all now.
I'm scared about what this can mean for my life expectancy because not only do I most likely have CP, but that it is most likely at an advanced stage.
Any opinions or support would be appreciated as I am expecting my first child in 2 months and am scared I won't really be around to see him grow up all the way.
