Do Most Alcoholics Keep Drinking After Acute Pancreatitis
My dad was admitted with acute pancreatitis. Alcoholic pancreatitis. He received 2 blood transfusions. He refuses to quit drinking. What will happen?
Potentially can die: Your father is unfortunately in a very tenuous situation. If he has received blood transfusions, I would assume his liver has been compromised and is failing, the lining of his esophagus(food pipe) and stomach being irritated and inflamed and is at risk for bleeding/ ulcers. Your father has to stop drinking now or he will endure a host of complications that will lead to his death. Talk to his doc ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Maybe: Depends what the pancreatitis is due to. If it is from gallstone or medication and you have had them delt with or stopped the medicine then it shouldn't be an issue. If it was from alcohol you could drink (no one can physically stop you) but you will be putting yourself at risk for future attacks and the nest time it might not be a mild attack. ...Read more
I had an eus that caused acute pancreatitis . I spent 10 days in the hospital . I do not drink.. What are that chances of a re accurance ?

More than likely, your md ordered the eus to look at something that may have caused elevation in a pancreas marker. Elevated lipid levels can lead to pancreatitis. ...Read more

Would you get a 2nd opinion for possible spincter of oddi dysfunction? Have acute pancreatitis, no gb or stones, don't drink, cholesterol not high
You could.: It seems you have already seen a sub specialist and the major causes of pancreatitis have been ruled out. Sod dysfunction makes sense. If you were seen at a major medical center i think you probably did get the benefit of several specialists although you may not have seen this. ...Read more
Could drinking the day of a blood test cause slightly elevated lipase levels? Do not drink heavily and never had acute pancreatitis.
I think so: I think that if you've never had this problem before, and you had been drinking that same day before the test, then it's certainly possible the alcohol caused an acutely elevated lipase level. If you drink on a daily basis, though, it's also possible that irbid always a little elevated. Maybe repeat the lipase lab when not drinking to check, ok? ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
