Is it Diverticulitis or IBS?

TY Harper. I do have that fairly often – not diarrhea, but many stools, 6 or more in a day. Docs have never been concerned about this. Call everything irritable bowel. I did have a general abdominal CT, don't know if this would be enough to suggest any problem with pancreas. I don't think I've had any testing for pancreatic enzymes.

One thing about chronic pancreatitis is that it doesn't seem like there is much that can be done about it, is there?

No. They just treat the symptoms. Usually pain, which I don't have. Pancreatic enzymes should take care of the stools and weight loss.
