Saw Dr. GI yesterday. It's official now...I have chronic pancreatitis. They had tossed that possiblity around for a while but I got the definitive diagnosis yesterday. I also was told that the pain in my chest/esophagus and the burning in my throat is not acid reflux (GERD) like I thought. It is BILE acid reflux. Totally different. Not much they can do for that either. Not much they can do for my pancreatitis either since I am unable to tolerate the pancreatic enzymes which are the usual treatment. I guess since I am fighting through it all and somehow managing to have a little bit of a life I just keep doing what I am doing. And this bile acid reflux goes along with the bile acid diarrhea that I have so I guess I just have an overabundance of bile. Yea me! :(
So that is what's new and exciting. Oh, and I got another B12 shot. This one didn't hurt at all.
