Are there any artificial pancreases?

No: However, transplant of small cellular components of the pancreas which make the insulin, called islets, are done in a few experimental centers around the country.

Don't waste your $ !: Assuming you have a normal functioning pancreas (that makes bicarbonate, digestive enzymes, & insulin) then you don't need to supplement pancreatic products. Otc "enzymes" are often inadequately regulated as to amount & efficacy, & can actually hurt the intestines when taken in high dose unnecessarily for a prolonged time. Instead, see your doctor to address if you are maldigesting your food. ...Read more

?

Pancreas has ducts: And "glands" (acini) in the head, neck and body. Duct is the most common. If it is "out", ask if margins, nodes, and distant search is clear. Best wishes on recovery. The surgery is extensive. The adapatation not trivial. ...Read more

Gastric ulcer?: It's possible you have a stomach ulcer. These typically cause sharp pains with eating. Your stomach actually lies to the left of your middle. If you had inflammation of the pancreas, likely you wouldn't be hungry, you'd be nauseated, possibly vomit. Your doctor might want to check for the bacteria causing ulcers, H pylori, in your stool. Otherwise you might need a scope. ...Read more
