Pancreatitis: Questions about further investigations

Posted by fogel1960 @fogel1960, Jul 25, 2021

I have been hospitalized. 4 x in last 6 months with acute pancreatitis. My liver enzymes go high, then go down, except the Alkaline Phosphate, that remains high.
I have sever stomach oain that radiates to upper left back. I’m nauseous. I am so bloated it hurts.
I’m not jaundiced
I recently had an MRCP, it said:my CBD is at 13mm, probable right adrenal myelolipoma,
Foci within the pancreas likely represent IPMNs.,
distal CBD stricture or occult ampullary mass
There is mild intrahepatic biliary ductal dilation.
There is a cluster of T2 hyperintense foci within the pancreatic body
. There is a T2 hyperintense focus within the tail the pancreas measuring approximately 3 mm.

I know I wrote a lot down but I’m praying someone in this group can give me direction. They cannot get me in for an EUS until November. Should I try to get into Mayo?
