Brief Answer:
This is not uncommon.

Detailed Answer:
Hi.
Thanks for your query, albeit short and specific.
To recapitulate: Female/80 - have a stone blocking the pancreatic duct on CT scan - consulted a Doctor and going to discussion over the reports of CT scan - worries as never heard this before.

Yes, this is a very rare condition, wherein one gets a stone in pancreatic duct.
I would like to know a few more details for me to assist you better:
What were the symptoms for which CT scan was ordered?
Please post the actual reports of blood, CT scan and so on.

With the advent of newer technology, better scopes, expertise and instrumentation, this stone may be removed and you may get permanent relief.

I hope this answer helps you, please feel free to ask further relevant queries if you feel that there is a gap of communication.
