I have had IBS with D for years. Recently a gastro doctor told me my pancreas has stopped working. He put me on Creon 5 pill with each meal. It has done nothing to ease the gas diareah. I have lost 40 lbs. He did a colonoscopy all good there. CT scan was good. Lab work showed Pancreas not working. He told me I would just have to live with the explosive diareah, cramps bloating. I cant eat most foods. I felt like he was not intrested in helping me. I have an appointment on December 15 with another gastro doctor. He told me to get a second opinion. I am not sure what he is treating. Creon dose not work as far as I am concerned. My father had a colostomy and he seemed okay with it. But this is a little more than I can handle, I can go out but as soon as the pain gets too bad I have to go home. I am on disability I had both knees replaced 10 years ago I am 58. The doctor just said stay away from red meet. But after reading about Crohn's I am not sure what I can eat or cant eat. This doctor left me in mid air. Sorry just needed to vent I am so unhappy with this condition. Happy Thanksgiving everyone.
