Pancreas Cancer Web


my husband who is 69 years old, male, was diagnosed with pancreatitus about 2 years ago...2011...he is experiencing a lot of internal GI bleeding,it's like he leaks blood slowly or sometimes fast....depending on the situation at the time, has headaches, anemia, diabetes and a lot of headaches...I, who am a wife and caregiver, have noticed when the CBC and Feratin levels drop, he gets headaches. It was ruled out that he doesn't have cancer, as a bone marrow test did not show cancer... and any other blood test he has been given and he has had numerous upper and lower G.I. exams and he is now maybe going to swallow a camera pill to see if they (his hematologist/G.I. doctor) can see anything. Question: Could the after effects of the panceatitus could have permanently damaged the pancreas by which causing the aforementioned symptoms? Is it time for a second opinion?
