My 70 year fit and healthy mother collapsed in horrendous pain ten weeks ago and was admitted to hospital with suspected infected gallbladder. To cuts a huge long story short we have every diagnosis given from indigestion to inoperable pancreatic cancer with 6 months to live. That last diagnosis has been refuted and they are sure mum has pancreatitis. She has been pumped with antibiotics, on bucket loads of painkillers, lost over three stone in weight and now has had a chest drain in for three days pumping out litres of fluid. Her infection rate is still high and all the scans and tests are proving to be inconclusive. I am just watching her waste away with no pro active solutions coming from the hospital. Has anybody got anything I can suggest to the doctors or is this the course of this disease. What is her prognosis? Could it turn to pancreatic cancer?
