My husband has Pancreatitis which he developed straight after an operation for Thyroid Cancer 8 weeks ago. He has had numerouse complications and has been on such a journey of pain etc. He has had the Staff bug and is cleared a week or so ago. The hospital doctor now tells me he has got the Staff bug again and also ecoli. I am so worried about him. They haven t put him on drip for antibiotics . At present he is getting pills for Staff infection. He also has draining tubes in to drain infected necrosis and a nasal feed tube as he is not eating, protien low (13). Can you please explain what his chances of recovery are, and also explain about the bugs? Many thanks. Sheila

Hello,

* As per my surgical experience, there are many reasons of pancreatitis as postoperative stress, enzyme alterations, hormone issues or else relation with immune level issues.

* The staphylococcus is a gram-positive coccus with multiple modes of systemic actions affecting various body systems via different actions via toxins.

* Recovery takes time, but under expert care it recovers the best way to complete resolution.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care
