    I just wanted to follow up on my wife who is the 48 year old female who had problems we are pretty sure with Milk of Magnesia. She was diagnosed with Pancreaitis. Like I said was feel it was the Milk of Magnesia that effected her. No definite cause was ever found though they tried to say it was heavy drinking. She was not doing this when this happened. No one really listened to us concerning the MOM which we stated both in ER many times and in hospital.
