4 days ago I had a severe pain in my abdomen and had to be hospitalized for four days they told me to stop taking Creon because my pain do you think these two situations are connected. Also I had Scopes through the mouth and through the rectum and they found nothing including CAT scan.
First, questions: Who prescribed your Creon, for what diagnosis, and how was that diagnosis made (what tests, etc)? How do you take your Creon? It has to be taken during a meal or snack, and about 1/3 of the way through the meal, or snack. It can burn your stomach when it's taken on an empty stomach.
In the hospital, how did they determine that your pancreas works perfectly?
When you were hospitalized for the abdominal pain, they found no cause for the pain? When a pancreas doesn't work properly, the labs that are used to diagnose pancreatitis can appear to be 'normal', instead of elevated, because the pancreas isn't producing the substances that are measured in the lab work (usually, the elevated labs indicate pancreatitis, but with chronic pancreatitis the pancreas, those substances aren't produced enough to be elevated).
