I've read and very much appreciated the infornmation you've given us on pancreatitis. I've also read a lot of your blog. I need to ask you a question. Do you have bile getting past the Sphincter of Oddi and on into your intestine? The bile would make your poop brown-colored. If the poop is just yellow, it doesnt have any bile in it. I'm asking this for 'my' health, not to tell you what to do. I'm not trying to be facitious. I really do appreciate your information. I've started taking ibuprophen for pain, not eating red meat (or suffering forewarned consequences if i do), and I sent a friend to get me white grapefruit juice (he only found yellow, but maybe next time). I'm asking you about the color of your poop because mine is yellow. No digestive juices seem to be getting through to my intestine at all. I'm trying to compare my prognosis for staying alive to yours. I'm trying to get my Sphincter of Oddi unclogged. I hope you'll answer me, and I hope I'll be able to find your post here again. I'll save the link. Perhaps of interest,..I have not been professionally diagnosed. I just know what I have and want to use natural remedies on it.
