For ast few days. Some constipation and loose stools today. Flatulent as well. I am 57 female and do not exercise regularly

Thanks for the reply.

It seems to be enteritis or inflammation of the intestines and these are not symptoms of pancreatic cancer. You can take tylenol for pain, peppermint and ginger tea would help , take lots of fluids and add psylium husk in your diet. Try to walk at least 10 to 15 minutes after every meal.

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
