Gastroparesis and mild chronic pancreatitis
In May 2021 I had an EUS where findings were suggestive of mild chronic pancreatitis (CP). I was told to follow a low fat diet which I have been following for years.
Last week I had a gastric emptying study, 98% retention at 1 hour, 87% at 2 hours, and 36% at 4hours.
Does anyone know if those results indicate mild GP or severe GP?
Also, is there a connection between CP and GP? I have not met with my Gastroenterologist yet to discuss findings, but nurse gave me a sheet on what to eat, not to eat.
My symptoms include early fullness, nausea, bloating and heartburn. I also have mild ringing in my ears, sometimes worse than other times. I have had a chronic dull gnawing pain in RUQ just above belly button for several years now. It's really hard to get clear answers or direction from doctors.
