I have Necrotizing Pancreatitis. I have sufffered from intestinal disease since my days ona ctive duty working with chemicals in the usaf many years ago. MY intestinal disease was first just ignored by doctors, and i was treated lieka mental patient. After being told it was gastritis, than, ibs/ibd, then I complained of soemthing growing in me and being extremely sick, 20 years later I kept telling doctors there was something large growing in e,, they finally found a 5 inch cyst on the hea dof my pancrease. Two failed surgeries and 6 months in the hsopital, on a feeding tube, no food or liquids were possbile, and i losss the ability to walk and loss al muscles.. the surgery took most of the large syst, and it wa snon cancerous but al of the complications, infections, and more and another six months to walka nd eat..

I was left with throbosis, necrotizing pancreatitis, and more stuff.. lots more problems. I am treated by the VA hsopital. The VA disability system has bene fighting me over benfits forcing me to go through appeals after denials for years...

I originally got sick from petrleum chemicals on active duty 30 years ago, and that's where most of the intestinal disease started along with swollen limbs, neuological problems, and more..

there is no cure and they said if I have one more pancreas infection they need to remove my pancreas... I have spent the last 20 years laying in chairs and beds resting too weak and sick to do much... I am just waiting for the day comes that the next fever takes me back into icu...
