I had my gall bladder removed in oct of 2000 and have been treated for sphincter of oddi dysfunction in jan of 2001 but still suffer from pain. I am admitted to the hospital two times a year with severe pain and my digestive tract is rested with only iv fluids (no food by mouth) for 7 to 10 days. No one seems to know whats wrong. The pain is so bad i cannot wear a bra and at this point so many foods trigger severe pain that i stop eating for long periods of time. Food is the biggest trigger and I have gotten worse as time has passed. I am a 40 year old mother of 3 that lives a pretty difficult life with this problem. No one seems to be able to figure out why I am suffering so much since the sphincter of oddi problem developed and was hospitalized twice for a month after the initial ERCP (I’ve had 5!). I am struggling to have a normal life, but living with pain and being on morphine for 5 years has weighed heavily on me. Is there any relief out there for this?
