Hi, I'm Jane. My stomach started hurting feb 07 and got continuously worse over a few months. I eventually went to docs who said i had gallstones. Not to bad i thought, so i had the gb out in december 07. About 1 week after the op i got sudden sharp pain again in my stomach, it didn't last as long as previous pain (some were 12 hours)but i was confused to say the least. Went back to doc, who sent me back to surgeon, who said i had IBS. I went on all of 2008 with pain almost every day, some days mild, some severe. I kept going back to docs but to no avail, i had self diagnosed myself with SOD but no one listened. In September 08 i went to bed one night with niggling pain which turned into massive pain that lasted all night. My stomach felt like it had some alien moving about in it and i felt like i had a knife in my back. I went all night like this, until i called mum when i knew she'd be up, she insited i went to cue doc (sunday service)she injected me with tramadol and said bad case of IBS. I got home puked and the pain started going. Two weeks later it started after some tomato soup, mum tried talking me into going to a + e but i thought whats the point, until 6 hours later i puked up blood. I went hospital and the doc there said he thought it was pancreatitis but wanted to wait for blood test. When it came back my amylase was 1800 and blood sugar was 15. In hospital for a week i had MRCP and the found a 5mm stone which was removed by ERCP. I havent had pain as such since then but get shooting sharp pains in my stomach and always feel sick and hungry but when i eat i feel more sick. Will their be any damage done to my pancreas cos after my gall bladder was removed i had pain for almost a year before the 2 big attacks, will i get it again?
