Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service.
I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

* The residue of oils in urine indicate possible presence of ketones due to various reasons, not necessarily indicate pancreatitis.
* There are various reasons as low carbohydrate intake, excess protein intake, starvation, over exhaustion, uncontrolled diabetes or others.

I recommend a thorough case evaluation with analysis of supportive documents of reports.
Regards.

I have pain in my abdomen area. Feels swollen and hurts when I push on it. I have been dealing with this problem since Oct. I have had a CT scan done negative. Also had a Urine test and blood work to check liver and kidney function. Then was put on CIPRO and then another antibiotic for possible Uninary tract issues. I had no success with either and am still having pain. I am wondering if you have any ideas? I ask doctor if it could be a hernia and he stated no that he would see it on the CT scan. I am concerned that it could possibly be Pacreatitus. Would that show up on an abdominal scan? Also my Colon was checked and said to be good.

I had mirena coil fitted on 15th Oct. Since then, I have bled constantly. Around the same time I became bloated and have had an upset stomach since. It's not my Ulcerative Colitis as scope, biopsies and stool/blood samples are clear, but docs reckon IBS. I'm no convinced. Any connection to Mirena??

Hi, I have had chronic abdominal pain, lower right quadrant, for nearly 4 years now. I had diverticulitis and had 14-16" of my sigmoid colon removed. Shortly after that it was determined that my gall bladder was not functioning properly and was removed. The pain never went away. Since that time, the gall bladder removal I have craved chocolate like you wouldn't believe. I have had MRIs, CT Scans, endoscopy, colonoscopy and all the specialists can tell me is what I don't have. No one seems to care to find out what is causing it. I recently heard about Sphincter of Oddi Dysfunction. It seems possible. Would that condition cause my body to crave chocolate as a form of combat for the symptoms? I am a 43 year old male, I currently weigh about 210, up 20lbs since the surgeries.

I had acute portal vein thrombosis (PVT) two years ago and was placed on Warfarin . Imaging at that time also confrimed chronic pancreatitis and gallbladder sludge . My gallbladder was removed in March of this year. Now my platelet count is low (since December of 2011 thrombocytopenia with 75,000), and I have chronic brown loose stools that float, and are oily. I have been off of the warfarin for about a year. My gastro doctor says he can do nothing about the stool problem and he will see me in another year. Bone marrow and liver biopsies show nothing (other than some fibrosis and scarring in the liver). Everyone has been so focused on the PVT, I am afraid that perhaps they should be focusing on possibilities of pancreatic cancer. Should I push for more imaging around the pancreas?
