Gavin Morris’ Story

My name is Gavin Morris and I have acute pancreatitis, chronic pancreatitis, alcoholic pancreatitis, and pancreatic exocrine insufficiency. I want to share this about my experience of alcohol and pancreatitis: when they say stop drinking, they really mean it! On the positive side, I made friends from long stays in hospital and I also made friends and met others in the same boat on a few Facebook groups.

What can you do?
