Kidney stone and inflammation of the pancreas
My husband has been told he has a kidney stone and that his pancreas has some inflammation. Does the kidney stone have anything to do with the inflammation of the pancreas?
Gallstones (gallbladder stones), not kidney stones can cause the pancreas to get inflamed.
