I believe that Pancreatitis is more painful than childbirth. I thought I was going to die or just really didn't care. Puking for two straight days with nothing to eat. Nothing but bile and dry heaves. My throat feels like 80 grit sandpaper. I guess it's time to have the gall bladder removed. ugggh. Dr appt next week to assess. Getting old isn't for sissies. bolt

Yep, it really really hurts. Once they got that thing quieted down and the gall bladder gone, I am feeling pretty good. The pancreatitis diet will take the pounds off you.

The gall bladder laparoscopic surgery was no biggie. Get it done ASAP.

My wife had it last year after a procedure. She ended up losing a third of the pancreas and her gall bladder a while later. She's on insulin now because of everything. Best of luck, hope you get well.

Thanks guys. I got an appt this morning to see the Doc. This flare up was twice now in the last 7 weeks. I wouldn't wish that pain on my worst enemies. Hopefully relief is coming.

Dealing with that level of pain just once was enough for me. I hope the doc sets you up for gall bladder surgery ASAP. That surgery was probably the easiest I ever had.

That kind of pain would have sent me straight to the ER.

The wife threatened to call an ambulance this last time. The first time I just thought I'd gotten some virus or something. But, I've been instructed by the dr to go to emergency room next time. They did blood work and abdominal x-rays this morning. Got to be in Tyler at 6 am for ultrasound in the morning to look at possible gall stones to remove. Yippee!

I did go straight to the emergency room. Thankfully it was empty of the other sick, lame, and lazy crowd, so I got in quick. My pain came on about 8 pm, and I knew that I’d never be able to sleep with pain like that. I thought it was severe indigestion. My wife was worried it was a heart attack.

When the tests are done, you are likely to hear you have gallstones and ‘sludge’. Who knew that sludge was a real medical term when talking about your gall bladder?

Good luck with it.

I had the the sludge (6 years ago, age 43). No stones in there, just inflamed with sludge.

A good friend of mine has dealt with pancreatitis issues for several years. He has been in and out of the hospital several times over that time (twice in the past few weeks). They did some type of surgery during the stay before the most recent one, and there was a time they didn't know if he was going to come out of the hospital. He just got out again and may have to have another surgery.
This stuff is nothing to mess with and I hope I never have to deal with it. Just seeing what my friend has gone through has made a believer out of me. Best of luck to you - I hope everything works out for you.

Bad news indeed. Had it 2 years ago, clear liquid diet for 11days, lost 27 pounds and thought it was the end.

I appreciate the feedback. The ultrasound didn't show much. They had a hard time finding a problem and called it a contracted gall bladder. That maybe it isn't working right. So now looking a this HIDA scan radioactive IV test to observe organ function to see if everything is working like it's supposed to. Beam me up Scotty.

So they did the HIDA scan IV with the radioactive pixie dust this morning. Pretty amazing watching it pump through the heart and disperse into the circulatory system. Then after about twenty minutes you can start to see the liver filtering it out where the outline of my liver was on the screen. Slowly it gets secreted into the bile coming from the liver. As I'm watching this in real time, I see it pass right past the gall bladder straight into the small intestine. Not a single pixel of radioactivity visited the gall bladder. It all turned into radioactive sausage links as it started collecting in the intestines. It looks like I'll be getting a cholecystectomy for my birthday.

Only issue I have with no gall bladder is salad. Still love them and eat often but violent explosions within 30 minutes. Good luck Sir!!

Thanks for the encouragement men. More tests, the last was another CT scan with oral contrast and IV contrast ( man that burns like bleach going through your veins). Now I've got another round of MRI coming up to determine surgery strategy right after Christmas. Seems like my gall bladder has contracted around the encased stones and is all but a dead organ at this point. The saga continues.
