      • Thanks for that. I’ve had about 5 or 6 bouts of acute pancreatitis over the last 5 years. Went for endoscopy on wed and gave me a 5/9 score and wrote down its chronic pancreatitis possibly caused by pancreas divisum. (previously had a 3/9 score. Not alcohol or gallstone related). They did not say how I manage it, what happens next, life limiting? Nothing really. Just looking to find out how others are. How they manage, symptoms etc.

        Thanks

        • John Take a look at our Acute booklet which mentions Pancreatitis Divisum. This is where the two halves of the pancreas, which should swing round to make one whole organ in the womb, do not. Hence you end up with one side with a drain and another without. It is VITALLY important that you get yourself seen by a PANCREATITIS Specialist rather than a Gastroenterologist. I could recommend a few I know but may be out of your area. Again the Discussion Board can help with a name.
