Sir I have met with two pancreatic surgeries for removal of cysts, in the last 5 years. My gall bladder and spleen has been removed from my body. Now there is dense calcification in my pancreas. I never drink. Sometimes I feel pain in the abdomen and take pain killer medicines/injections. Kindly suggest if this will create problems in my life. If any treatment is available in Ayurveda to clear this dense calcification from my pancreas. Also suggest the precautions/prevention, I should do.
There is any entity called idiopathic pancreatitis. The cause is unknown. You may need to take pain killers under supervision of doctors. There are surgeries available to relieve symptoms of pancreatitis. You are at risk of developing diabetes mellitus lateron. Kindly consult a gastrointestinal surgeon nearby.

Gilbert syndrome is a condition where people have elevated bilirubin in blood . It is a genetic condition . These people are absolutely normal they can work in hotel industry .
