I have had a ct, mri and yesterday a EUS. I was under the impression from my PC Dr. that it "could be cancer" and I had blockages in common bile and pancreatic ducts and they didn't know why. When I spoke with the Gastroenterologist yesterday before the EUS he said he doesn't see anything suspicious in the ct and mri done elsewhere. After the EUS he said my pancreas is "abnormal appearing, charaterized by hyperechoic, heterogenous, lobular, parenchyma, a thickened, hypoechoic rim/capsule around the pancreas, and diffusely narrowed pancreatic duct and the ducts were dialated 14 mm. He also said my pancreas is "black and a differential diagnosis is autoimmune pancreatitis". In addition to hiatus hernia. Blood tests were taken and I am waiting for results. Has anyone ever had these findings on a report? I am wondering why he said my pancreas color is black and what it could mean. I was so drugged that I didn't say much or ask anything before I left. I sit here waiting to find something out. I have been sick for going on 7 weeks now with pain and bathroom dependence. No matter what I eat! Please let me know if you have heard of a black pancreas. Thanks!
