I've had chronic pancreatitis for 6yrs after having 3 acute pancreatitis attacks. I'v had no real problems other than pain. Since 2014 i've been admitted to hospital because of the pain. I'm now on longtec 40mg, oxynorm 5mg and co-codamol for the pain for 18mths, after having had 32 admissions from 2014 til a week ago. I've now got scarring present. What does this mean? The pain i'm in has got worse from the scarring diagnosis, is this caused by the scarring?
