Hi my name is***** will reply to you in just a moment, allow me to read the question.

Expert:  Dr. Mo replied 2 months ago.

I believe they mean that the pancreas has gotten inflamed due to to much fat around the pancreas. Excess inflammation around the pancreas also can cause fat to deposit around the pancreas. Did they say he may have had pancreatitis or inflammation as well? Does he have any issues with weight?

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
the starting of pancreatitis. been losing weight but he has not been eating very well too. the doctor putting him on cholesterol medication
Expert:  Dr. Mo replied 2 months ago.

So if he continues to lose weight he likely will lose most of the fat around the pancreas and he should be completely fine and normal, just takes time.
