Hi,,Im going to try and keep this short,lol. I was rushed to hospital last febuary and long story short i had gallstones that caused acute pancreatitis. I was also a fairly heavy drinker at the time and im sure this was a big contributor too. I had my gallbladder removed in july and kinda thought that would be it. I was so wrong! I was pretty much in pain constantly until in october it got so bad i went back to the hospital and my amylase was at 609. I had CT scan MRI and an ERCP (which was awful!) and they said i had a pseudocyst on my pancreas. I was sent home after a week with tramadol,codeine and paracetamol. The pain didnt go away,hand the pain killers had absoloutley no effect. I was rushed back in last week after the pain became unbearable,,and my amylase was at 426. The doctor said that the cyst was keeping me in a constant low level pancreatitis state and i was sent home on oramorph and paracetamol. The cyst is 10.5cmx8.2cmx4.5cm big....which seems huge to me!! ive been referred to a pancreas disease specialist at kings college in london,,,has anybody had any dealings with them? They said they couldnt drain the cyst outside my body because of where it is,but that the specialists may have some other things they want to try.
Im quite scared,as im relativly new to all this. Anybody been through this,or have some experiance of things like this? Id ont know anybody whos got CP nd havent spoken to anyone other than my doctor about,,and we all know how helpful they can be!! lol
Thank you in advance!! xxx
