4. Pancreatitis

Treating acute pancreatitis almost always calls for a trip to the emergency room, where pain medications and IV fluids are administered. Perry was then hospitalized for a week and a half.  In some cases, a condition, such as gallstones, that caused the attack may also need to be treated.

If left untreated, complications can range from infection and malnutrition to kidney failure and pancreatic cancer, which is why it’s important to get your symptoms checked early on.
