Pain Management

Abdominal Pain

06/07/2010

Question:

I am a 25 year old female that has had my gallbladder, appendix, spleen and pancreas removed. They did an auto-islet transplant so as of now I am not diabetic. However, my symptoms persist. I have severe pain in my left upper quadrant that is sharp and constant. I take Opana and dilaudid for pain and it only help just slightly. On top of that I have had viral meningitis 4 times without any indication why. I have pain, stiffness and numbness in my hands and joints and if moved in the right right way will send shooting pain up my arm. I was recently told I don`t have arthritis though. I am so frustrated and I do not want to be on narcotics anymore and I`m starting to give up. Please if anyone has any idea of what could be going on with me let me know.
