Pancreatitis

How does chronic pancreatitis feel?

A Answers (1)

  • The most devastating feature of chronic pancreatitis is pain, which frequently becomes severe enough to require daily narcotic medications. For those whose lives have deteriorated because of unrelenting pain, relief—and return to normal life—may be possible only when the pancreas is removed.
