Posted , 5 users are following.

I'm just having my second bad attack of chronic pancreatitis last year it was found I had a cyst of over 6 cm which was drained and all has been fine . Last Monday I had another bad attack was taken to hospital where they found the cyst has filled again. I'm in so much pain this time I'm on dhc continus 120 twice a day plus paracetamol that wasn't touching the pain hospital prescribed treamadol plus paracetamol again this is barely having any effect. It's a week now of constant pain nausea no sleep I feel I will never be normal again . Does anyone have any advice on the best pain relief for this I had morphine in the hospital and that helped a little can the doctor prescribe morphine for you any advice would be very welcome thank you

    I know your pain and if you are in the UK and have a GP yes you can have morphine on prescription. I have been on pain relief since first being diagnosed with CP several years ago, after various juggling of meds I find Zomorph ( a slow release capsule lasting 12 hours) twice daily I can manage my pain. This keeps a level background dose without any dips or losses of pain relief.  There are other means of pain relief, including other variations of Morphine available. I hope this helps you. Jo x

    I heard of applying heat pads helps with the pain.

    Also you might want to start a high antioxidant juices or capsules to help reverse the cp, studies from ncbi show quite great results.

    another thing is chelated magnesium, it helps to decalcify youre pancreas.

    please keep us updated i will pray for you and hope you go back to enjoying youre life soon.

    godbless and take care.

    So sorry you are having so much pain. 

    Unfortunately, the body does not like empty spaces so am not surprised that the cyst refilled. 

    Talk to your doctor about the continued pain and nausea and see if he will prescribe morphine or a different pain medication for you. 

    Sending good thoughts that you are pain free soon.

    my wife has had her cyst for 2 years and had it drained 3 times. surgeon said it should be removed as it couldbe/was precancerous. as i said earlier she went to hospital had the surgeon open her up, excuse me, and inspected the pancerous to find the cyst had dissapeared. he then had to sew her up again and suggested a ct scan in 3 months. meanwhile she is  in a lot of pain after having her stomach muscles cut etc
