Pancreas problems are most of the time related to heavy drinking.
I think I have that...I have had bathroom problems now for over 10 weeks. When I was in hospital last time my lipase level was in the 1800. The high range for this is 150 (or something).
I have an apt with a Gastro this Thurs. because my PCP can not figure out why I am having this problem.
Has anyone else had experience with pancreatitis from drinking? And I am assuming this is chronic...since it has gone on for so long.

really hope it's nothing serious misssy, xx
We have now been told he should not drink for 6 months!!, hence the second attack on xmas eve. Its been 5 weeks now and only just up and about but still very weak. In his research he came across chronic, which he think i have. I have drank for many years, up till 2 years ago when i stopped vodka. When i stopped i got much better but then i started on rose wine. The symptoms i get are bad stomach, very bloated, constapation/and opposite, burning all round my stomach and pancreas, like its going to burst inside. Shoulder pain through to the front under the stomach. I cant wear a bra without it really hurting, no sickness as yet, does any one else have any of this and could i have it too??? I really belch badly as well xx
Sounds like your gas problems and pain..and shoulder pain could also be associated with gallstones...because I was reading about gallbladder (hoping it is that vs. my kidneys or pancreas) and it mentioned shoulder pain.
I'm not sure mine is pancreatitis....because I have no pain...I'm worried now it is my kidneys cause my urine is very foamy. and I read about that for kidneys. I can't wait to go to the Doctor tommorow just to get started..I know he won't determine what it is right away...but its a start.
Please make an appoint for your Dr.
