Recovery time for acute pancreatitis

Hi I was diagnosed with moderate acute pancreatitis a month ago and spent a week in hospital. My abdomen is still feeling a bit tender and when I saw the gastroenterologist earlier this week, I forgot to ask him how long this would last before I should get concerned. How long does it normally take to recover fully and not have any symptoms? Thanks

Hi Patricia, 

It could take up to six weeks from the start of the episode. If the pain becomes worse, then you should go back to the doctor. Good luck and I hope you feel better soon!
