Common Questions and Answers about Pancreatitis pain meds

pancreatitis

Avatar n tn I am getting some similar pain but mine is not so bad, it came on after I was prescribed Penicillin and took strong pain Meds and had dental work done , I am still a mystery but not taking any other prescribed meds that make me ill.
Avatar f tn Yes - I suffer from chronic pancreatitis and had SOD. Back in 2006 I had SOD surgery. I also suffer from IBS. Also, one doctor thought I had gastroparesis because I had an abnormal emptying study last year, but I just returned from Mayo and the emptying study came back normal. Also, most recent doctor thought I had Small Intestine Bacterial Overgrowth and put me on Cipro for 8 days. Now I don't know if the pain is from my stomach/antibiotics or the pancreas.
Avatar n tn Cessation of alcohol intake is imperative, particularly if this is the underlying etiology of pancreatitis. Abstinence does not always lead to symptomatic improvement; however, patients with alcohol-induced chronic pancreatitis who continue to drink have increased mortality.
229538 tn?1300381367 I'm afraid I myself don't know very much about this disease, but I did find a good site with info for you. Is she on pain meds? sounds like pancreatitis is quite painful and its a good idea to use pain control to promote healing. for long term pain control the most recommended opiate is BUPRENEX or TRAMADOL for cats. good pain control would also make her feel more like eating, but on the other hand loss of appetite can be a side effect of some of the medications...so need good Vet advice there.
Avatar f tn she was in the hospital for 4 days and was released yesterday morning,The pancreas is nothing to play with i promise,my wife had all kinds of meds to relive the pain and nothing would help.So the gave her something to put her to sleep.we trying to figure out what to give her to eat that wont cause pain..
Avatar f tn The thing that is hard with it is, which you have experienced, your scans can look normal and blood tests also and you still have pain,nausea, fatigue and the whole pancreatitis everything! The ER will not do anything about this because nothing is showing up on any of your tests and according to the its not an "emergency" so get to a GI fast! chronic pancreatitis is hard to diagnose so hang in there!
Avatar f tn I am no expert in the field but, from my experience, food and water is usually completely stopped from 1-5 days to let the pancreas REST. 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 Also, this condition is extremely painful, so when an acute attack comes around, she'll need IV pain meds as well.
Avatar m tn i am a 27 yr old female, with more pancreatitis attacks then i can count in the last year and a half. ive been accused of a frivilious life style which is so far from the truth. ive had every test known for this condition. in the last 2 months i was put on a protien suppliment to replace my emzymes that my pancreas produces. in the first 2 wks i lost 20 lbs, had no appetite, liquid bowel movements, dizziness, fatique, discoloring of the skin,and more symptoms i can even list.
Avatar f tn At that time he gave me Opana 10mg long term and break through pain meds. I found the Opana to be a pretty good pain control, but it was also over 80.00 to pay for it, which is just too expensive for me to continue to do. When I was in the hospital there was a pain management doctor that came up and they put me on a morphine pump instead of the 6 mg of morphine they were giving me every 2-4 hours. That worked ok, until I started to throw it up.
Avatar n tn I suffered over 2 years and made many trips to the ER, doctors, and was even hospitalized for testing. I was only given meds to help the pain. I was diagnosed with gastritis and IBS and was basically told there was nothing else to be done. BUT, upon a big attack (EXTREME pain and nausea) I went to the Urgent Care Center and the doctor there spotted it and I was sent the next day to a gastro doctor who did the ERCP. DON'T give up! KEEP PURSUING your symptoms!!
Avatar f tn Check to find out about autoimmune pancreatitis. You also need to check with the doc to see if it's possible you could have formed sludge or gallstones subsequent to the removal of the gallbladder.
436191 tn?1256649906 It's very hard to stay away from pain meds when you are in this kind of pain...but beware of that class of drug. Would you say since the gb surgery you have improved at all...or are worse off? I hope the former. Consider doing some real good self-massage in the area of the pain and also the waist/hips - even legs. You can go to a professional if you have someone skilled. Muscles can play a big role in our pain...though I suspect they aren't the primary cause.
Avatar n tn My sister who is older than I is currently in a detoxification program resulting from pain meds that were intended to control the pancreatic pain. My sister became addicted to oxy contin, vicodin, and percocet. I would give you advice but it would be your choice to accept the advice... It is in your best interest to stay away from alcohol all together, as well as talking with your DR about a diet best suited for you and your disease.
Avatar n tn Well I'll try to explain to you what i typically go thru. Seems like my pancreas pain and pancreatitis pain are kinda seperate. they seem to have different symptoms but as the same,,,if you understand what im trying to say. my stomach stays sore between my ribs right in the center, it's sore to the touch, my bach ached right up the center and it usually hurts in the left shoulder blade, kinda feels like a burning stabbing pain. it hurts under my left rib cage more like a aching burning pain.
Avatar m tn I was diagnosed with mild pancreatitis over 4 years ago it is on going. I currently still am experiencing slight pain on my right side. I have been seen by a GI doctor and a CT Scan, Ultra sound, MRCP have been performed. No issues have been found, I asked if it could be cancer and was told no tumors or cist we found wehn reviewing the xrays. We then tried to stop my BP meds thinking they could be the cause, but I could not stay off of them long enough to make a determination.
Avatar f tn My glucose is 112 and my tryglicerdies are 306. I have no abdomonal pain but do feel very fatigued. I just recently had gone to the hospital for heart palpitations and feeling like i was going to pass out. Are these levels still able to come down? Or is it possible that there is no turning back at this point? Very nervous.
Avatar n tn He had a central line placed in his neck so he didn't have to get stuck with needles all the time, and was put on TPN - nutrition given via IV. He also had a ton of pain meds - a 75 mcg fentanyl patch along with injections of dilaudid for breakthrough pain. At least I know he was as comfortable as humanly possible those last couple of weeks. Anyway, the only reason I mention this story is because your dog at 14 is doing great!
Avatar f tn 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. When I took my regularr RX to the pharmacy to have it filled, they said that I needed a new authorization from my pain management docs.
Avatar f tn i've lost alot of weight in past month and now can't keep nothing down but maybe a dry piece of toast in middle of day after all my meds. every morning for a very long time i throw up for a few hours and there is no words for the pain. i try and seperate myself from the pain.sometimes it works for a little bit.oh well, i just tell myself that i can still walk and see, so suck it up! HA! easier said than done as we all know. day is half over, i know i can make it until bedtime.
Avatar n tn As you know, there is constant pain with this disease that can lead to addiction to pain meds as well as building a tolerance to meds, which has it's own set of problems. 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.
Avatar f tn I have severe pain in my stomach all over my lower abdoman and up my right side 10+. I tend to throw up food about 1hr. after eating, most of the time.I can only eat once a day, mostly liquid because of the pain and bloating. Severe bruising on my abdomin started about a year ago that go from dark color when symptoms are severe and lighter when symptoms are less severe. I have been tested with moderate gastritis,inflamtion around the plyrous valve leving the stomach.
Avatar m tn We went to the ER and even though the blood test results came back inconclusive they said it was probably pancreatitis. They gave him 2 injections of pain meds and hooked him up to an IV. He was feeling better so they gave him a Gatorade to drink and that made his pain come back almost immediately. They gave him pain meds and sent him home. Since then he's had an endoscopic ultrasound to take a better look at the pancreas and, of course, it looked normal.
Avatar n tn The treatment for chronic pancreatitis is pain meds enzymie replacement Iam on creon 20 and diet, Low fat high fiber. Part of my job is as a corrier driver and it is elegal to drive while taking pain meds. that can I do prove my case to insurance claims. I am not asking for the noon just that I be put on short term disablity and TRW when I have these attacks and have to take pain meds.
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?
611067 tn?1458595083 You need to focus on getting healthy and I hope you are not beating yourself up because you have to take pain meds. If you have any concern about taking more than you need, why don't you give them to your husband and have him give you your pills. 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.
Avatar n tn Thanks Margie I have nagging pain almost everyday, sometimes in my stomach and sometimes in my back, I am being very careful with what I eat, No fried foods and low to no fatty foods. Last summer I realized I was getting addicted to pain meds so I stopped taking any narcotics. I have good days and bad ones.
