Pancreatectomy

Hi. Like the other replies, my condition is different. I had a distal pancreatectomy with splenectomy in 2012. My blood sugars were somewhat elevated at first but came down over the next year so I'm in the pre-diabetic zone. I've had lots of abdominal pain and digestive issues that my GI doc can not figure out. Actually I'm on my 3rd GI doc because they get frustrated with me and say there is nothing wrong. Recently I had an MRI finding of mesenteric panniculitis but there isn't much that can be done with that and the doc doesn't take that disease seriously. I've tried lots of alternative tests and supplements without much success. Basically I'm hanging in there hoping it will either get better or worse.

Hello @steve_b

As Mesenteric Panniculitis is a rare disorder, I would encourage you to watch this video from a doctor at Mayo, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=079KrH8k01Q

Mayo has specialists that deal with this disorder. Many members of Connect have spoken highly about their treatment of this disorder at Mayo.
