Lisa, I'm so glad the test was negative. I would have put money on it as well. I am glad for you also that you have come to realize what the doctors knew all along, just sorry that you had to endure the extra months of worry along with many tests, and anxious days and nights awaiting results, due to advice you received here.

I followed your posts starting last summer, and could have told you then it wasn't PC, but others tried, and you didn't seem to want to hear that. Regardless, after watching someone die of PC, I am glad for you, that you do not have it~~~ I wouldn't wish it on anyone.

I will caution you however, in the future, be careful what information you receive from 'chat rooms' and message boards on the internet. Many times things sound the same as what someone else has, and though you did receive some good advice, and most people here do receive good advice, you also received some bad advice here which caused excess worry etc. Also, you don't really 'know' who's giving you advice, and often it's only based on their own personal experience, and can cause one to discredit a Dr., who while not all-knowing, has more understanding of how the body functions than most of us.

I honestly do wish you the best, as I said before, I wouldn't wish PC on anyone, and I am truly glad you don't have it. I hope that you will find the best treatment for your pancreatitis, and will feel better soon.
