Steve is feeling better. He has no nausea or pain. However 80 % of his pancreas is necrotic and has become infected. He has been running a temperature. The doctor is treating his infection with a wide spectrum of antibiotics. If his infection isn't cured in 48 hours he'll have surgery on his pancreas to remove the infected parts.
If Steve has surgery he will be in the hospital for two weeks and recuperate at home for another two weeks.
Did you know that in addition to insulin, the pancreas produces digestive enzymes?
