Mild Chronic Pancreatitis

Posted by @rickzaner in Digestive Health, Oct 4, 2012

I was recently diagosed with mild chronic pancreatitis. I have had psoriatic arthritis for over 30 years. The blood test for autoimmune chronic pancreatitis was negative (normal). I also have IBS....How do i know if I have had IBS or Pancreatitis for all these years. My stools are never the same twice and I do have some floating stools sometimes but no oil droplets in the water. I am taking Creon before each meal and cut down my fat intake...What is the answer here. I am scared. I am 54 yrs old with a family and want to understand what lies ahead.

I am curious to know if you have had attacks of pancreatitis with bouts of extreme pain?

I had 2 bad in March and again this past August.....The pain is what brought me to the ER...Only there did my blood work show a big spike in my Lipase....otherwise the CT scans were unremarkable. After the 2nd bout in August my Gastroenterologist ordered an endoscopic ultrasound where they said it was mild chronic pancreatitis.
