    You may have some stones or sludge stuck in your bile duct. Have they checked that? If that is the case, you may also have acute pancreatitis which would explain the pain across your entire abdomen and back. Ask to have your amylase levels checked. They need to be between 0-164. This is what happened to me and I have no made a full recovery. Best of luck.

      Thanks Jim. Did you hv any op done after discovery d cause of ur pain? I hv had this pain for more than 3 yrs now. Few times I hv passed out. I had a serious attack 2 days ago n ended up in the emergency, a scan showed nothing. Was given pain killers n asked to go back tomoro. I really need some desperate measures to get to d root of this.

      Hello Eshireta, 

      I’m sorry to hear you are in so much pain. I did d have an operation to remove my gall bladder. It was about 2 years after my first symptoms. It sounds like you really need to seek other medical advice as it Doesn’t seem they are looking in the right places.

      Seems that's what I will do. The health care system here isn't working as it ought to. Both private n govt. health care facilities are just after maximizing their profits, while undermining d underlining factors of saving lives. I will basically demand for my bile duct n pancrease checked next time I visit d hosp. Thank you once more Jim for sharing with me. Will sure kp u posted on updates.
