I was recently admitted to hospital with severe de-hydration, an elevated heart rate and extreme rapid weight loss. I had been throwing up bile and had terrible back and abdominal pain. Now, I have had Crohn's disease for 21 years, had 4 major surgeries and been through all the treatments. But. This was like nothing I had ever experienced before. I begged and begged the doctors to think outside of the box, pleading desperately that I know this illness inside out and it could not be my Crohn's causing the symptoms. They insisted it was but because i refused immune suppressing drugs they treated me with fluids, codeine and elemental diet. My immediate symptoms started to subside although I still have nausea and a dull tummy ache. I started doing some research and came across articles online about pancreatitis and how Crohn's and in particular treatment with AZA can directly cause Acute and Chronic Pancreatitis. Shocked and appalled that my doctors basically treated me for pancreatitis but refused to admit that that is what I had and that they had caused it with AZA despite my repeated protests. For months i had told my consultant that it was making me sick but he fobed me off. Everyone on here needs to clue themselves up on this silent killer!
