The only pancreas I have now

pancreas plushie pancreatitis surgery removed recoveryThis is my pancreas! It’s actually my only pancreas because I had to have my entire pancreas surgically removed.

It’s a disease characterized by irreversible damage to the pancreas, distinct from the reversible changes to the pancreas found during acute pancreatitis.
