I was in the hospital for a week with pancratitus. All they did was give me morphine shots ever 4 hours. now i just watch what i eat but i notice even avoiding that stuff i still have the pain, so i am on percocet everyday. My doc has also just started me on amitriptilyne, 20 mg a day. i find it helps a bit, and i dont wake up with pain but by lunchtime its back. anyone have suggestions? i dont want to eat low fat (rice cakes) for the rest of my life!
