I have acute pancreatitis, I was diagnosed and had surgery 18 years ago with many attacks after. I now am having more severe attacks and have lost 20 pounds. The doctors that I am seeing are saying I must get a referral somewhere and in the meanwhile, I could die? What should I do?

My husband was recently hospitalized with acute pancreatitis (April), and, as a result, was diagnosed as diabetic. One doctor commented that he has calcium deposits (?) that would indicate chronic pancreatitis. He is taking insulin shots and was somewhat better for a couple of months, but has been experiencing significant pain, especially in his back. I am thinking that it may be chronic pancreatitis as opposed to a side-effect of diabetes. What pain medications are available to managed the pain for chronic pancreatitis (he has adverse reactions to morphine or morphine based drugs)? Also, what can been done to achieve a better quality of life with this condition?
