Pancreatitis: Questions about further investigations

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.

I was on Creon this year and did not help??
I wasn’t prescribed anything. I think of a 101 questions I would like to ask the Dr now. My husband &/I were so shocked sitting down with Dr and he just said “ they can’t find the reason, except Idiopathic Chronic Pancreatitis “ He told us when he has to give news like he did to me, that some people actually wish the Drs could even say “ you have cancer”
I related…..at that time at least.
No meds, no management plan…..
I was so concerned about my weight loss and no appetite. I thought “ I will just deal with the pain”. Tho that is much easier said than done. My my weight loss is so troubling & I know I can’t keep losing weight & not eating! I loss 32 lbs in 7 weeks & Im a fairly small person so it is really bad.
Medical marijuana is legal but one I of my Drs is against & do random drug tests, and I have to see him because he manages a Nerve disease I have, Reflex Symphetic Dystrophy ( RSD)
Now I just don’t know what do to do. We felt like Mayo was our last hope and came back home a week later stunned we have no answers nor guidance
Do I just keep going to the hospital to be admitted when I have a Pancreatic attack???
THANK YOU FOR REACHING OUT!
