Pancreatitis pain medication

Common Questions and Answers about Pancreatitis pain medication


Avatar n tn Would pain due to pancreatitis be disabling in most cases? I am having post gallbladder removal problems, and I am concerned that my pain is due to pancreatitis? Had my surgery in June with a lot of problems afterwards. At one point I was diagnosed with a bile leak, and given antibiotics. After that I felt pretty good for several months, but now the pain has started again. I have a lot of pressure under my ribs, both sides. Stomach area is burning.
Avatar f tn Fluid therapy, regular blood work (sometimes several times a day), pain meds or a patch for pain and antibiotics are often used. This is a very painful condition. In pancreatitis, nutrients the dog needs are passed out in the feces, thus probably the reason for the weight loss (and that is quite a bit). Has he been checked for diabetes?
Avatar n tn That would be up to the treating physician. No one here is a doctor, and it would be quite wrong to make suggestions for medications in this venue.
Avatar m tn They kept him in the hospital for 5 days. They kept him on strong pain medication to help. He was not allowed to eat for 2 days, then they gave him jello and broth. They treated it very seriously! Maybe seek a second opinion, get a different GI doctor.
Avatar n tn usualy best while in pain,,,not after it subsides. ultra sound of the pancreas. does he have pain through to his back? epigastric pain mostly center to left side? is his belly destended? barrium swallow could rule out ulcer do to years of alcohol abuse,and to be sure hes not got excessive stomach bleeding.
Avatar f tn when in any doubt please contact your Veterinarian. pancreatitis is a very painful condition I certainly hope your kitty is on a good pain medication. http://vetmed.tamu.
Avatar n tn I posted couple of weeks ago . I went to the Er on 3-11 & was admitted for 4 days for pancreatits with mildly elevated Lipase (28) & a -sudden- severe pain in upper right quadrant(close to breastbone) that went straight thru to the back that was excruciating after eating that night. I also have ongoing pain in my back and a 'shooting & spasiming pain ' thats tolerable for now directly in my left ribs.
Avatar n tn It takes time for the pancreas to settle down after an acute attack, so the usual treatment is to avoid alcohol and rich fatty foods while treating the pain and nausea with medication. You're so young that you will very likely recover just fine as long as you mind what you put in your mouth and let your pancreas rest and heal. It's not going to happen overnight though.
Avatar m tn While carprofen IS an anti-inflammatory, I would think that a drug like Tramadol would actually work better on the kind of pain caused by pancreatitis. The pain associated with this is actually quite severe and treating it with carprofen would more or less be like expecting a patient who just had abdominal surgery to be able to take Tylenol or Advil for post-surgical pain. Tramadol is stronger and much better equipped to handle the kind of pain produced by pancreatitis.
Avatar n tn Follow your diet, stay away from alcohol and see your specialist often. Alot of what you mentioned sounds familar to Pancreatitis. The diareha, the continuous pain, the off colored stools. You are probably experiencing fatigue, mood swings, depression and/or extreme tiredness. My specialist told me it's exhausting being this sick and he is right. With your families help, you will be better in the future than you are today.
Avatar f tn I have abdominal distention, squeezing pain that starts in abdomen and moves up my body to my neck, drilling feeling behind lower left ribs, extreme fatigue, pain in abdomen, pain in joints, swelling, etc.. I have "a bunch" of Esophogeal Ulcurs and an inflamed stomach, this issue was addressed. I have been to several Dr.'s that don't seem to CARE about ME as a whole.
Avatar f tn I am now 61 years old and have chronic pancreatitis, fibromyalgia, IBS, GERD, asthma and problems with both the back and hips. I have had numerous surgeries due to the pancreas and liver. I have been on very strong meds for several years. Recently I was in a really bad situation partly due to my insurance company. I take opiate meds for pain. The last year and 1/2 that included Methadone and Fentanyl lollipops as well as other meds for nausea etc.
Avatar n tn The Puestow Proceedure is designed as a measure to reduce/eliminate pain thereby reducing or eliminating the use of pain relievers. Pain is generally caused by the reduced power of the organ to drain due to blockages. Surgical placement of a stent to bypass the blockage can achieve better function of the organ while reducing pain.
611067 tn?1458595083 I think that is a good idea anyway, so he can watch the clock and keep you ahead of the pain. WHen you are in as much pain as you are right now, and with the medication, it is hard to keep on the right schedule. My appendix burst in May, this is how smart I am, I thought I had the flu......yes the pain was intense but I also thought I was to old to have appendicidis! obviously I waited to long and made the situation a whole lot worse by trying to be "strong".
Avatar f tn I was recently givin medication to help with a frozen shoulder. I took two Solpadol pills and within half an hour of taken them i was rushed into hospital with severe stomach pain. The doctors ran test and i was told it was pancreatitis. I was checked for Gal stones, was clear. They said they found no cause, and it was put down to alcohol misuse. I am not a heavy drinker. Could the Solpadol have caused this? I read in the leaflet one of the severe side affects is pancreatitis.
Avatar f tn Also, did you take the pain medication every day? Does your pain come and go or is it constant? Did the baby have any side effects?
Avatar n tn Because the vet gave us muscle relaxants and rimadahl to give for pain management, his pancreatitis flared up again. Now he is in the hospital on intravenous fluids and pain med injections. I just want to know anyone's thoughts on this? I really believe if he didn't have problems with his neck, the pancreatitis would have been controllable. But b/c of his "slipped disk" in his neck steroids is usually the treatment, but he can't have steroids b/c of the pancreatitis.
254215 tn?1195096984 withhold food, support fluids and nutrients via IV, and treat with strong pain medication until the episode passes. We waited for over 3 weeks when our dog had panc, and finally had to euthanize him because he was just not getting any better. Chronic pancreatitis can be managed to a certain extent with diet.
Avatar n tn Feel free to post again if you have any more questions. What are the symptoms of chronic pancreatitis? The symptoms are very variable. Pain occurs in most patients at some stage of the disease. This may vary in intensity from mild to severe. It may last for hours or sometimes days at a time and may require strong painkillers to control it. It often radiates through to the back and can sometimes be relieved by crouching forward.
Avatar f tn Pancreatitis is a definite possibility. But they say you don't have that? Anything show up in your endoscopy? like Gastritis or ulcer? These too can give you killer abdominal pain and vomitting. When one doctor can't help you, its time to find another. Maybe go to and find the best internalist, gastro, and whichever dr specializes in the pancreas, and go see them. And if it is your pancreas, they can remove it.
Avatar m tn I am tired of living in constant fear of pancreatitis. I would appreciate any info you could give me. The pain is never so bad I double over and movement tends to aggrevate it. Thanks for any info.
6472661 tn?1381772732 This started with maple sausage links my grandson dropped and Chloe scarfed up 6 of them. The next day Chloe is in pain, stiff, stomach is puffy and her back is rigid, she whines some when you touch her too much. And she starts shaking and panting also she wont jump or go down steps. But no throwing up or diarrhea I took her to my vet Last saturday, they did an exam and xrays of her stomach and intestines for blockages and they were clean. Her doggy Dr. said she thought it was pancreatitis.
Avatar n tn get pains somtimes burning on the right upper side of stomach also towards the upper centre(the stoach issues began or were made worse when i took antibiotics nearly a year ago for a tooth extraction) , i did have a gastroscopy done of stomach and deodenum 2 years ago was fine, i been treating it for gastritis, the medication helps but not much, milk helps somtimes, some foods make it worse and certain sour drinks including orange juice, but the last few days what ever i eat is making it pain
Avatar n tn Librax (4X a day) Nexium (40 mgs 2X a day) Fibercon (3 pills 4X a day) Viokase 16 (4 pills 4X a day) Darvocet or Ultracet for the pain (Darvocet when I have a break through attack) Ambien (as needed) Erythromycin (1 and 1/2 Tsp - 4X a day) Since beginning the Viokase approximately four weeks ago I have found that I have some relief with the pain in my back and my overall day to day pain/discomfort has improved.
Avatar n tn My husband is sill not right, he is hearing things and says it is the medication the Dr. put him on. He gave him antidepressants, a pill to help him sleep (anehistimean sp? not working) antibiotic. He is an alcoholic and has been for a very long time.
Avatar f tn I have noticed, that about half the time that I have attacks, I had taken Vicodine or another pain medication for my degenerative disk an hour or so before. Once, I was eating a grapejuice bar. It seems as though many things can trigger attacks. Sometimes, I just feel strange after eating & know that I might have an attack. Every Dr. tells me that the pain medication shouldn't cause these attacks & even though I once had pancreatitis, they don't think this is the cause. My Dr.

Avatar n tn i have tried everything and the best and safest i found was oxycodone15mg works almost allday long four me
Avatar n tn He has to follow a VERY LOW FAT diet and along with the medication he is now able to eat without being in pain. The medication works by stopping the pancreas producing the enzymes needed to break the food down, the medication containes the enzymes the body needs and so the pancreas does not need to work so hard.
Avatar n tn Other than that her symptoms go more with pancreatitis. Pain above her left ribcage that goes to her back - pain about her shoulder blades. When we saw the Dr.he had a complete blood work report in his hand and it showed raised amylase (131) and lipase levels (718) which I always thought showed pancreatitis. When I questioned him he said some people just have high levels and it is normal for them. I don't buy that.
