    even after removing the stones are removed you will still be in pain.  it depends on damage done when you had your attack and what level of your attack. you also have make the life style changes and stick to low fat diet and no alcohol etc. 

    many of us still are living daily with bouts of pain. by learning to take your pain relief to help manage the pains and knowing what the limits are.

    I had an idiopathic acute pancreatitis attack at level 3 going to 4 and I spent 15 days in hospital. from boxing day till this year. I spend most days in pai  even now. But thanks to the help and support from here I am learning more about my condition and different ways to try and help ease the pain.

      to be honest I am on sick now as the amount of pain relief and sudden bouts of pain prevent mr from doing my job safely. even driving can be painful. not my car its my body just cannot sit still for long.

      I would be taking leave until you are ready. 

      keep on at the doctors I have been told having my gall bladder out will cause further issues. yet a surgeon wants to take it out but other consultant say no. its confusing and at times head doing.

      you need to stop work and let your body recover slowly or you could make yourself worse. 

      plus check with your employer as alot of company insurance policies don't cover you if you have an accident.  This is something I found out eg people taking things like tramadol while working with machines are not likely to be covered because of the tablets effects.

      I have had a few bouts where you loose normal function because of it. get blood pressure checked as pain raises blood pressure and keep a check for diabetes.

    I had severe necrotising pancitius due to a gallstone in the bile duct back in April, I was in intensive care for 5 weeks.  Having my gallbladder removed on Friday! Do scans show you have scaring and damage to your pancritis? I've been told that the damage to my pancitius and the psdsocyst and causing my bouts of back pain. I've been to a&e countless times with pain, I've learnt my limits and when I need to seek medical help!

      charly I would think twice about gall bladder removal. I was told i would be back to normal.  but after finding out from others what has gone wrong and my doctor telling me it would cause other issues even slack bottom etc. and further pain. it doesn't cure pancreatitis it just removes a possible link. once the damage is done etc. 

      I have had mine cancelled twice due to repeat lung infections that it now turns out is damaged caused by the enzymes in the blood stream during an attack. I have decided to not have it done.

    Pancreatitis is usually a sign of Tumour of the pancreas; I was diagnosed with 'gallstones,' by my NHS hospital consultant, even after the ultrasound scan  did not find any & I told him my symptoms were cancer(obtained from his employer website, nhs.co.uk) continued after a ECRP found a blocked bile-duct, which was cut & a plastic sleeve(stent) was fitted & this NHS doctor/& the consultant continued to lie to me, stating there was nothing there! That was sept.2014, in early Oct.2014 I was told by another NHS consultant from the same NHS hospital that I had 'Tumour of the Panceas.' This was repeated last Friday by the consultant who said, "it's serious, needs to be cut out, straight away & treated with Chemo Therapy." I agreed to have it cut out 'staright away,' but not the Chemo, only to be told nothing available until mid-Jan. 2015!  Previously, in June 2013 my GP practise said it was nothing & it(pain) would go away & refused to examine me, just spoke to me over the phone! Doctors/Consultant's make mistakes, get a second opinion, plse?

    here's a link to very good doctor, phone, book/pay & make an appointment please.

    From the extensive research I've done, 'by the time Patients feel abdominal pain,' the tumour has already travelled to other areas of the body... ask for PET Scan, to find that out... better to know, then it can be treated; you may also have option to be treated overseas via Proton Beam Therapy Treatment but don't hold your breadth as, this LibDem/Conservative government has made cut-backs & it's a bit of a lottery...
