Pancreas advice please
Hi all. First time poster. I was taken into hospital early Monday morning with bad chest pains, anxiety and loss of breath. After numerous blood tests the A&E doctors were saying Pancreatitis but the surgical Doc and the Medical team disagreed and said inflamed and damaged Pancreas. From what I'm researching its more or less the same thing no? The cause is heavy alcohol abuse. Med Doc said something about enzymes and dead cells and said the usual level is 50 but mine is at 280. Anybody any idea what this figure is and if its bad or not? And also should I quit alcohol or just give it up for a while and then drink responsibly. If so, how long does it take for the Pancreas to return to normal?
