I have had chronic pancreatitus fot the past 15yrs. I am 39. It went undiagnosed until I had one of my worst attacks when I was 8mos pregnant with my daughter, now 7yrs old. My pancrease almost ruptured and I ended up in the hospital for 4mos. The doctor had to remove the head of my pancrease, a procedure known as a whipple. They say there is no known reason why I have this horrible disease. I suffer from an undiscribable pain. I try to control the pain with diet and pain medications. Will I ever be normal?
