Pancreatic Rest

Posted , 4 users are following.

hi ive had an issue with vomiting since may. i vomit every day between 5-20 times a day on average. ive had numerous tests and endoscopies. so far they have only managed to find out what the vomiting has caused, not what has started the vomiting - esophagitis, ulcers and chemical gastritis. i am taking lanzaparole dissolving tablets to hopefully heal the ulcers and my 3rd lot of anti sick ness but still not working. i received a letter from the specialist yesterday saying he suspects i could have a pancreatic rest - which is new to me. it was located on my last endoscopy. has anybody had or even heard of this?

      Well vomiting will make you sore by itself ,it aggravates the ulcers . The scared tissue is probably from a healed ulcer which vomiting has caused it get inflamed . With treatment and a bland diet will rest your stomach the inflammation will heal . Then your vomiting should subside .. Another thing that will heal stomach conditions including inflammation is aloe vera juice , drink 6 to 8 oz 3 times a day ..

    An ectopic pancreas is an anatomical abnormality in which pancreatic tissue has grown outside its normal location and without vascular or other anatomical connections to the pancreas. It is a congenital disease and is also known as heterotopic, accessory, aberrant pancreas or pancreatic rest.

    Maybe this cause of your vomiting Did you ask your doctor if this was the cause?
