Hello - my husband has has pancreatitis for 12 years. He has had one surgery where they basically scooped out a psuedocyst and took out his gallbladder (found no stones). He has been in and out ot the hospital several times with episodes. He generally will have some pretty long streches where he feels pretty good but the last year has been ruff for him. Before January he only had to take the pain meds occasionally and if the pain got really off to the ER we went but since a pretty bad episode he had back in January he has had to take pain medicine every week (Demerol) morphine only made the pain worse. His GI MD has decided Demerol is not a safe drug and he might have something called Narcotic Bowel Syndrome - Has anyone else been told about this? Curently he is back in the hosptial on dialudid and is going to have a pain block on thrusday. Would love to hear about others experiences? Thank you -
