It has been a long time since I posted. If you review my posts on previous threads you will get a good sense of my history. I wish I had good news, but after being "symptomatic" for nearly 14 months and having doctor after doctor telling me there was nothing wrong with me, I finally carry the diagnosis of mccp - which is mild change chronic pancreatitis. This was diagnosed by my 3rd eus at the end of February. Now mind you, my last euc in June of 2009 was "normal". Right now, I take pancreatic enzymes with eat meal - viokase 8; they number about 4-6 with each meal, 2 with snacks and for the time being I am stable. I am also taking a ppi with my enzyme because it is the uncoated variety. The ppi prevents preactivation of the enzymes in the stomach. I discontinued the carafate over the summer because I finally determined it was of no consequence.
I am sorry that you are not feeling well. You know your body best and just press on until you get the answers you deserve.
All best, Micro
