Pancreatitis: Questions about further investigations

I just left Mayo after being there a week. No clear cut answers to my stomach pain, back pain and weigh loss. They all were very kind. I had a colonoscopy & upper endoscopy . No cancer, they did do 7 biopsies . Final results: chronic idiopathic pancreatitis. My pancreas is filled with 80% fat. Stomach lining inflamed. They said they really can’t give me a clear cut answer. My concern is how I deal with us bad stomach pain & back pain. It hurts all the time. My other major concern is weigh loss & no appetite. I’m assuming no appetite is because my body knows it is going to cause me a lot of pain. I am down to 120 lbs and losing more weekly. I cannot eat or drink a bite of food. How am I going to survive. Anyone’s comments & help would be much appreciated!

Did they prescribe any meds? Digestion issues stemming from the pancreas frequently take digestive enzymes like Creon. Is medical marijuana legal where you live? My wife wouldn't be eating at all due to nausea and loss of appetite is it weren't for high dose THC RSO every day.

Good luck and prayers you get relief.
