Diagnosed with EPI a few weeks ago. Had a CT Scan April 12th. Showed distended pancreatic duct, distended hepatic (liver) duct and Common Bile duct. Scheduled May 2 for a MRI and MRICP I have a lot of pain, I was just wondering if anyone is dealing with any of this ? I am a retired LPN. I have Googled reputable Medical web sites and they say. A combination of the Common Bile duct distention and Pancreatic duct distention combined with abdominal pain; is a strong indicator for pancreatic cancer. Has any one on here had anything going on like this ??

      Hi! I know the window of waiting is a terrible place to be. Your heart is in your throat with worry. I’m just going to say, you’re doing the right thing, you’re doing all you can right now. You’ve got good doctors and you’ll have some answers soon. In the meanwhile, look for ways to curb that anxiety. Talk about it here or with others in your life. Spend time outside, walking if you can. Do some fun, distracting things. More than likely, whatever is wrong is going to be manageable. I’ve jumped to conclusions along my EPI journey too and have had weeks of worry that ended up not being necessary. As a cancer survivor, I understand your anxiety and know it is just about impossible to avoid. Stay off Google for now.
