i was dx with ibs about 20 yrs ago. it seemed to all but go away a few yrs later. a yr ago i had my gallbladder removed and all hell broke loose. i spent 46 days in the hospital after lap. surgery to remove my gallbladder. with 4 tubes sticking out of my sides draing liver bile from my abdominal cavity from a bile leak that happened after surgery. i was told that was normal for something like that to happen. i do not believe it. but anyways, i have had pancreantitis 3 times since then and still have horrible stomache pain along with sometimes runny stools sometimes small stone sized stools. i usually have atleast 4 small to medium bowel movements a day sometimes twice as many is not out of the ordinary for me since surgery. i went to specialist and had ultrasound and was told it showed nothing and i needed to find a surgeon. no help there. this past sunday i thought i was going to die. i had never hurt so bad in my life. it felt like pancreantitis but ER cat scan showed nothing. it took 3 doses of morphine and phenergan to settle it down. it bothers me all the time and about once very few months it gets so bad i end up in the er begging for pain meds while doubled over and crying hysterically from pain. the pain is in my upper part of my stomache and a lot of times off to the right side, over my liver. blood work always comes back ok. this is not in my head, i actually hurt so bad i think it is going to kill me. over the last yr i have had many many cat scans, mri's and a endoscopy most done about 10 months ago. ultrasound 2 weeks ago and another catscan this past sunday in er. it does not discriminate against any food, meaning all food bothers me. any thoughts?

I gave my 2 week notice last Friday 13th. Now to join you fine people in a life of leisure and nothing else to do but to look out for myself....is it just me or does that sound pretty boring? My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
