Hi to all my DC friends, just letting you all know that I'm still here! Been in the Hospital all week! Just got sprung yesterday, still not up to par yet. At least THIS time I got some answers! Seems I have a narrowing at the pancreatic duct. Good news is it's treatable. Bad news is the treatment is prednisone. Prednisone and I are not good friends! It took me the last 6 months to lose 37 lbs. and just this last week to get my BS #'s down and NOW this which causes BS to go outrageously high AND weight gain within a week or so!! So NOW what??!! I have until next Thurs. when I see the specialist so I'm trying to get as much info and questions together for him. Any suggestions other than the obvious?? I KNOW I'm going to ask if there is any other med I can go on but what else??!! Prednisone works GREAT for pain for me but nothing else! So I'm wondering if it's worth it??!! This is the 4th time since Nov. that I've had pancreatitus. Makes me never want to eat again and we all know that won't work!! Thanks for listening! Ellen and yes even though I'm still smilin'!!
