REALLY VERY USEFUL & INFORMATIVE POST. THANKS FOR SHARING.

Acute pancreatitis is a disease with lethal potential. I remember , in my school days , my grand mother developed severe acute Pain in abdomen following a meal on the day of new year . My father ( m.b.b.s ) immediately took her to the surgeon who diagnosed her with acute pancreatitis. She was admitted for 25 days , s.amylase was done & in addition to restriction of oral fluid & repeated daily aspiration of gastric content she was on iv fluids . Nearly 175 pints were given. Trasylol was made available from bombay & was also given in addition to other medicines . Ultimately, she developed pseudo pancreatic cyst & was operated for the same . Two hrs after surgery , she had passed away . This incidence took arond year 1977 . Please mention how better isprognosis pf acute pancreatitis now a days.
