Dear baccala,

You might want to repost this to the attention of Dr. Lava.

Here's a link to an overview of pancreatitis and its treatments.
Neil S Lava, MD responded:
I'm sorry to hear your father has acute pancreatitis and hope he is improving. There should be no connection between his MS and the pancreatitis.
It is difficult to predict recovery not knowing all the details of what is going on.
As far as his MS is concerned he may have more difficulty functioning when he recovers and it may take him a while to get back to his neurological baseline.
