I had a pancreatitis attack which lasted 5 days with all the symptoms: severe abdominal pain, nausea, sweating, fever, chills, swollen abdomen, weakness, etc... I rarely drink, but it started the next day to a night I had a few drinks. The pain and how I felt was so bad that I am afraid of having it again. (Needless to say I will never have another drink)...

Does that mean I have pancreatitis or it can be an isolated attack? Can anyone help me with these questions?

I had to have a lung biopsy, and I have cancer. A very rare form that doesn't have any standard treatment. There just isn't a lot of case history for this. It is epithelioid hemangio endothelioma. The cancer support group doesn't talk every day. I can understand why. I'm waiting for the oncologist to call back for an appointment, and will hear in the next few days. Who knew. Ha!
