Hi!
welcome to healthcaremagic.com.Drinking anytime now is going to be dangerous since already previously lipase had risen and pancreas is damaged .Any further insult to pancreas(drinking) would be very bad for your health.Take care.

Hello Dr., I am 35 yr old male. I have been having ongoing episodes of pain in the middle of my upper abdomin just below the ribs. I also feel a pain in the upper middle of my back as well. These episodes begin about 3 hours after I eat. They would occurr randomly every few weeks, until end of novemer, and I had several attacks over a few days. I went to my family practice doc, and they found that amylese and lipese were elevated. They gave me miralax and I returned 5 days later and levels back to normal. I have since had 3 attacks, until yesterday. I have now had 4 attacks. Usually for relief I vomit , drink water, and vomit again. I usually have to repeat 3 times before I get relief. It is now a holiday, and am gauranted a fun ride for at least a couple more days. I plan on marching into the ER when I m done with work, any ideas?

I went to the ER on Friday night with back pain and r side front pain. my lipase level was 2191. They did a cat scan with contrast. They discharged me told me I have pancreatitis and only drink liquid for the next 3 days. So on Monday I called my PCP and he sent me for another blood test and this time is was 1,981. On Tuesday he saw me in his office and said to repeat the test today Wednesday it was 5,200. He told me to go to the hospital and be admitted. So i went they were waiting for me. Then they called the Gastro doctor and they gave me a bag of juice and repeated the cat scan with contrast. It showed all ok again so now they discharged me and I am to see the gastro doctor tomorrow morning. Many years ago My gallbladder erupted and the stones went into my pancreas and took them a week before they could do exploratory surgery and remove my gallbladder. I do not drink. Should I be concerned with the level so high? No one is giving me any answers. I am not eating only trying to drink. They gave me deluded pain medication to take. I am not throwing up just feeling like muscle spasms in the front of stomach and pain from time to time. What type of questions should I be asking? I am not getting anywhere. Thank you Dale

Hello and thank you for your time! My son is 31 years old and has been recently diagnosed with Crohns after 2 colonoscopies. He is physically active with exercise and sports.. Recently his lipase level came back extremely high, around 600. His Gastro Dr. followed with a colonoscopy and a CAT scan. Nothing unexpected was found and his liver, pancreas and gall bladder appeared normal. His next blood test showed lipase level still above 500. He is having an upper endoscopy in 2 days. He is worried and fears the worst ( pancreatic cancer ). Why would his lipase levels be so high in your opinion? Are there specific questions he should ask of his Dr.? Or specific tests you would suggest?

I have a history of chronic pancreatitis. I have no been feeling well these past few days. I went to urgent care and was kept over night. My lipase levels were 980. I have pseudo cyst that a CT showed have shrunk. It also showed no current inflammation in my pancreas. Today I still do not feel well. I am having moderate upper abdominal discomfort. When I stand and walk, my hearing seems to get real muffled in both ears and I feel pretty weak. What could it be. What should I do. I do not necessarily want to go back to urgent care because I have been going to frequently it seems.

Have been diagnosed with elevated lipase level last week of 71 normal level (7-60L). Suffering gastritis also at the moment. Have not had a drink in 3 weeks, is this pancreatitis or something else. Would be a weekend moderate drinker usually. Can gastritis cause this ? Thanks so much
