Well, NOW I'm MORE frustrated than before I went!! :( The Hospital Dr. said he wanted to put me on prednisone for my pancreas, but, the specialist said he NEVER uses prednisone for the pancreas unless it's auto immune??????? Now I have to go for another MRI in a couple of weeks. So I STILL don't know what the outcome is going to be!!!!!!!!! SSSSOOOOOOOOOO frustrated right now!!!! I JUST want to be better!! Is that so much to ask?????? So now I just sit and wait for the pancreatitus to come back! OH JOY!!! Ellen
AND NOT SMILING TODAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :( :( :(

I totally understand your frustration. I have RA which is autoimmune so I have to take prednisone every day and have for 3 years but my endo hates it. She keeps asking me when I'm going to get off it. My answer is "probably never" or when I'm miraculously cured. It's difficult with so many doctors and everyone pitching for their specialty. Sometimes I wish they'd all get together in one room and make a game plan that's the best for me instead of what they think is best for them. I'm so sorry you're being told two totally different things. That's very frustrating!

I don't have that same problem but GEEEZ can I relate to being frustrated by doctors!!!!!!
I just want to take the best possible care of myself but I'm not a doctor. I keep changing doctors and nothing is getting better. Makes you want to throw up your arms and give up.

Some of the tests you have had can cause pancreatitis. It took them 6 mos to find my pancreatic tumor. They put in 5 stents in my bile duct to keep it open and it kept getting infected. It was a lousy 6 mos until they found out and many tests. Have them do a CA 119 blood test.

To see if you are still living??? (or, if you died and no one told you!) I always hate being the last to know!
