      You can have CP without being a drinker i know Gallstones can cause it . But if you google CP and causes of it you will see other causes . Theres a facebook crhonic pancreatitis UK you can get good info on there

      Yeah im aware of this and i have been under my gp for years i think gallstones may have been the reason forfor a long time and ive been fobbed off with ibs and omraprozale for 15yr ! The liver scascan guy said he couldcould see a blockage he thought coupd be a stone yet the specialist jumped onto alcohol abuse without any facts ! Its upset me a bit
