    Hi stuart13,

    Go ahead and post the url if you wish to. It will get flagged for moderation but I will ok it once I see it.

    For info, we will be tidying up the subjects in the forums. For example, we have discussions on Acute Pancreatitis under A and Chronic under C. These will get merged into Pancreatitis. Similarly the various pancreatic tumours may get merged etc.

    Hope this helps,

    Ok thanks.

    www.pancreatitis-forum.org.uk

    Lots of sufferers and carers. You can talk to those who are also suffering like you Debbie, and who understand what you are going through and hopefully help you, with advice, suggestions and shoulders to cry on.

    It's a good idea to merge the pancreatic subjects as they are so closely interconnected, with very similar issues for the patients, and all require the attention of doctors with pancreatic disease knowledge.

    Hello tony, I feel very sorry for you now that you have pancreatitis,.my first bout of it was when I was 18, it was then found I had gall stones. They removed them 3 years later,but the panc. didn't last so long that time as it was acute due to blocked stones in my bile duct this is common cause of ACUTE panc. this type doesn't last for more than a few months.although it is extremely painful. , I have cronic panc.at the grand old age of 60 after years of acute pain on and off 3 years ago after every blood test, cameras MRIs CAT scans and anything else they could think of ( and loosing 5 stone in3 months),

    Are you in constant pain or does it vary, are you seeing consultants regally. Are you getting enough pain relief, I am on morphine now, as you know the pain can be unbearable.

    Cronic panc. is for life, it won't get better but can be kept under control. If I can help in anyway just message me,

    regards Debbie
