What causes repugnant odor in urine with pancreatitis?

I was diagnosed with pleurisy about two weeks ago and treated with anti-inflammatories. Unfortunately, I continued to get worse. When I reached the point where I was having major difficulty breathing I went to the ER and was also diagnosed with Pancreatitis. This was about a week ago and my condition seems to be getting worse. My doctor is treating this very lightly and I have not been able to get in to see him. This morning I woke up and I noticed this very repugnant odor coming from my urine. This odor has not gone away and now everything tastes bad. I am not sure what to do.

Hello,

The odor in urine is urinary tract infection with the possible side effect of certain drugs, lack of oral liquids intake or other systemic manifestation of pancreatitis.

A primary evaluation with urine microscopy will help to guide further. If can provide rest details of ultrasound and current medicines, better guidelines can be sorted here.

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

Regards,
Dr. Bhagyesh V. Patel

Hello. I have had an attack of pancreatitis last may and it cleared up ok. Now, for about a week, I have had very dark yellow urine so I went to my doctor. He confirmed high levels of bilirubin but no blood in the urine. I had an ultrasound exam today and the Dr believes he sees a mass that has grown since he suspected one last may. My question: Can I grow stones in the pancreatic that would block the bile duct and cause my problem? If so, what would be the normal treatment. Thanks, Don Cancel please. I did not know there would be a charge for your service. I will wait for my doctor to find my problems.

Husband takes Avodart and Flomax. Currently he has become extremely constipated despite eating well and drinking lots of water and exercising. Cannot seem to have a bm without use of magnesium citrate (which he doesn t want to do) but is taking miralax daily. Also he is having to strain to urinate, which then causes a smeary mess around the rectum. Now he s convinced he has pancreatic cancer. Are going to call to schedule a gastro appointment tomorrow but are curious as to what could be going on here.

I have very long history of pancreatitis; which is almost burned out now. I have become a brittle diabetic no matter how much I try. I take 4 shots of insulin and limit my amounts & what I eat. I go from 35 to 600. Am all over the charts daily. Recently I was told I have a lot of protein in my urine test. In fact, they want me to go to a kidney specialist. At first thought I should be on dialysis, but am not end stage renal failure yet. Also I have noticed an embarrassing odor from the urine no matter how many times a day I bathe. It is not like strong urine, but something else. My stomach is embarrassingly swollen and very noticeable. What can you tell me about what I have shared with only you? Thank you, JO JO

My husband has a uniformed rash on his back. No raised welts or pimples. He says there's no itching or burning but I'm afraid it may have something to do with his pancreatitis which he was diagnosed with 4 years ago. His doctor said he has a neucrotic pancreas.
