Hi I am desperately seeking help it has been 3 years that I have been having problems, it all started after I had my gall bladder removed. I was doing ok for the first few days after the surgery then all of a sudden I started getting severe sharp stabbing pains in my lower right side of my stomach. Along with this I started getting nausea, vomitting, and constant diarrhea that presents with blood off and on. I have had every test imaginable from x-rays, catscans, mris, blood tests, nuclear imaging, octreotide scan, colonoscopys, endoscopys, stool tests and finally the pill cam test. All of which have come back not showing anything other then the blood tests showing increased gastrin and low potassium and the last colonoscopy showed increased lymphocytes in the duodenum. The pain increases with meals insanely and no matter what I eat it hurts really bad. I find myself using the bathroom 7-9 times a day with diarrhea and without anti-nausea medication I vomit a lot. I have lost a lot of weight and I am suffering from insomnia now and depression due to the fact I havnt had a life in the past 3 years. I have been all sorts of medications and seen 4 different doctors at 3 different hospitals. I was taking percocet for pain which only helped take the edge off but my primary docotor said no more and him and my current gastro sent me off to pain management. I was started on tramadol which is a joke for my pain, it does not help at all. I am currently on Zofran 4mg 3 times daily, lomotil 25 mg 4 times daily, neurontin 300mg 3 times daily, Prozac 25 mg once a day, trazadone 50 mg once a night, and aciphex 25mg once daily. I am lost to what to do now cause the pain management docotor wont do any procedures for my pain and will not change medications, I am also being refered to a pain management rehabilitation program. I have heard that this is pretty much therapy which is fine but I dont see how it will help my syptoms. I do not know what to do anymore, I am loosing my mind and I have started thinking about suicide because of the non stop pain and inability to eat, sleep or do anything. Any input would extremely helpful as to what I should do.Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
