Common Questions and Answers about Pancreatitis pain morphine

pancreatitis

Avatar f tn 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. The GI doctor then decided to try me on 50mg of fentanyl and 5 mg of oxycodone for break through pain. I found that to work great, they sent it home with me on September 6th for a month supply.
Avatar n tn I have been diagnosed now with Pancreatitis and it is painful, Lortab and ofcourse the morphine helped the pain. I am new to this site and hit the wrong area accidentally, i am in the Gastro forum now..
Avatar f tn The doctors believe mine is related to CF, because I also have some lung issues. I was put on a morphine pain pump 2+ years ago. After MANY discussions with my doctors: Pain, GI, Pulmonary and High risk OB, the doctors still were not sure...they said they had never dealt with a pregnancy with someone this severe, but that I could try it and we would find out. I am now 5 months pregnant.
Avatar m tn Is liquid Morphine somehow differenty to tablet-form Morphine? I am very reluctant to take the Morphine. Even so, he is the doctor I'm only a musician : ) My second question I would be grateful fro help with is that a lady I know who sufferes severe pain from degenerative bone disease is prescribed Morphine IR and Oxycodone. She tells me this combination works well for her. Does anyone have any experience of this particular combination of Morphine IR and Oxycodone?
Avatar m tn Has anyone else notice that their pain gets worse when given morphine? If so, could this be a clue as to the source of her pain?
Avatar m tn So now with the morphine and the cannabis I’m still in pain, terrible pain but what would anyone here suggest.
Avatar n tn I know from experience how awful pancreatitis can be, and hope he at least has a decent pain management doc. I can't imagine going through a huge surgery like a Whipple only to have it fail. Do the docs give you any idea at all as to why he is still having attacks? Another blockage? Scar tissue? Anything? It may be true that there really isn't anything left to do. People with chronic pancreatitis sometimes suffer for years and years until the pancreas basically burns itself out.
902019 tn?1249865014 It was a bit more intense on my right side but only slightly off center. The docs would always ask about pain in the back (typical of pancreatitis) and I never had any pain there. Could never come up with any definitive correlation with anything e.g. what I ate, how much I ate etc. They gave me Nexium 2x a day to calm the stomach but that had no effect at all. Still a mystery.
774635 tn?1235698493 I was in a lot of pain today with Pancreatitis so I had to take a lot of painkillers. This wasn't an excuse it was genuine pain. I was admitted to hospital and given IV Morphine. I took a lot of painkillers when I got home and also a sleeping tablet. I'm back down to 2 Tramadol tablets a day.
Avatar n tn Over the past 10 days he has had no food and being given Morphine for pain. His blood counts (I am not sure what the enzymes are called but there are three of them they test for Pancreatitis), were getting better over the first few days and since then are going up and down around the same level. The doctor is concerned but doesn't give me much information on why this could be happening.
750120 tn?1252458630 I've heard that Pancreatitis can be extremely painful and temporarily debilitating. Stay strong. Your subject stated "Hospitalization for Hep-c related Pancreatitis." Why do you think is was the Hep C?
Avatar n tn R. because of the pain. I was administered Morphine, which increased my pain dramatically. I have since learned that such a reaction to Morphine may be indicative of Sphincter of Oddi Dysfunction. My GI doctor is currently running tests to diagnose. The pain is located in the upper-right quadrant (ribcage area) and radiating to the back. I experience this pain EVERY day since it started after my son's birth (3 months ago). Some days it is worse than others.
Avatar f tn Our frustration is the doctors are now treating his pain as undiagnosed with a bout of pancreatitis in the middle (can you believe that?) His pediatrician doesn't believe he will find anything when they do the other tests and has booked him as an out patient. because his pain does come and go especially when medicated they felt he should get on with his life and come back for the tests.
Avatar f tn I had my pancreas and spleen removed to help with hereditary pancreatitis pain, well the surgeon felt that I would be on pain meds for life since there was so much damage. But I had the surgery to quit the meds. He gave me the morphine to help the methadone withdrawals. He planned on me tapering off the morphine, but I moved and haven't found a new doc yet, so I am not in a very good position. I should always have a dr, but it is difficult with everything else to do. So that is my story.
Avatar n tn There seems to be no treatment except morphine for pain and intravenous fluids. There seems to be no literature on childhood pancreatitis. Can you give me any information about the cause, prognosis and any preventative steps we could take.I submitted this question to the Gastroenterology Forum and it referred me to this section.

Avatar n tn I've had several major episodes that I've managed at home with clear liquid diet, rest and pain meds. I also have a morphine pump implant which is set on 3 mgs per 24 hours. Yesterday, following a two week period of upper abodominal and back pain consistent with the pancreatitic symptoms I've always experienced, after trying to manage at home with a reduced intake diet of mainly liquids, I broke down and called the gastroenterologist office. He was out so I was told to go to the local ER.
Avatar n tn These seem to come on very suddenly and do not seem to be related to any condition such as diet or trauma nor drinking alcohol, obviously. There seems to be no treatment except morphine for pain and intravenous fluids. There seems to be no literature on children with pancreatitis. Can you give me any information about the cause and prognosis and any preventative steps that we could take.

Avatar f tn They drew blood and an ER Doctor came right before they sent me for a cat scan. He said you've got pancreatitis. I spent the night. The pain never came back but they wanted to keep me 5 days on iv fluids. no food or water. I had 2 cats at my hotel room and hadn't paid for the next night. so I checked out. The first time I urinated it was dark burnt orange and stayed like that for 4 days before it slowly cleared up.
Avatar m tn I forgot to mention I did have an older aunt AGE 55 who suffered acute pancreatitis with extremly horrible pain, however she is an extremely heavy drinker for over 40 years. She also suffered a stroke due to her alcholism. She literally wakes up in the morning to have a beer. Me I drink only a few times a year. My neighbor is a young man in his early 20's and he drinks heavily as well, he is also had horrible pain.
Avatar n tn It has been reccommended and I would like to hear from anyone that has used it. __ Dear Beth, Chronic pancreatitis can produce an incapacitating pain,, as you are aware. In our practice we have had much success using Duragesic analgesic patches. In a small subset of patients, there is a single streicture of the pancreatic duct and in this group surgical treatment may be effective.

Avatar n tn The doctor felt the increased biliruben was most likely caused by the pancreatitis and then increased by the morphine, your impression please? 5. Any other recommendations you can think of?
774635 tn?1235698493 I was admitted to hospital with Pancreatitis and given IV Morphine. Discharged home same day but needed lots of opiate painkillers. Pethidine worked well.
Avatar f tn So wondering if it is all connected to the really severe pain I had yesterday. I did take 10mg of morphine for lower cramps that morning, I did have slight pain to upper abdominal then, but it got worse after morphine, although the lower cramps got better. Thank you for any light shed on this, it is depressing me Please also note I have been suffering with on and off tummy troubles since I was about 14, I am now 30.
Avatar m tn When people say chronic pain and nothing else it limits the responses to pain meds usually narcotic. If the source of the chronic pain is told then people with the same problem may give ideas for temporary relief thru other means,,for instance I"ve had multi back surgerys and can tell things that did or didnt work for me but only if I know that the persons pain comes from problems similar to mine.
Avatar m tn Also I forgot to give a couple of webites, Is it pancreatitis in acute abdominal pain in acute viral hepatitis? http://www.bio-medicine.org/medicine-news-1/Is-it-pancreatitis-in-acute-abdominal-pain-in-acute-viral-hepatitis-3F-5080-1/ Also do a search for, Abdominal Pain Hepatitis on google and start reading. ps, print some of the articles you think would be the best at shutting down doctor's who think you're faking it or have a screw loose.
