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?
