In brief: PANCREATITIS TX

PANCREATITIS which is inflammation of the Pancreas is treated with bowel rest(NPO STATUS) Hydration & Pain control.
While being closely monitored the cause needs to be evaluated. IE GALLSTONES/ALCOHOL USAGE/MEDICATION/ANATOMICAL/. Trauma. The cause of the pancreatitis will dictate further options. You need a full exam &plans . CT SCAN OF ABDOMEN AND PELVIS AND CLOSE OBSERVATION.
