Chronic Pancreatitis
Have history of chronic pancreatitis (10yrs)- had an acute episode last week with extreme abdominal pain radiating at back. Had constipated for 3 days since the attack. Passed stool yesterday it was dark pitch black. Today too had similar black stool. Don't have any stomach pain since lastweek after getting a pain killer shot. Was in liquid diet for initial 3 days since attack and Took solid food day before yesterday. Should i be worried if its a serious symptom of anyother underlying disease or is it normal in pancreatitis to have black stool for 2 days.? Doc i saw advised for ca 19-9 test which increased my anxiety more. Pls help!
