I had my gallbladder removed and ERCP for clogged bile duct almost 5 yrs ago and have had spasms in area where gallbladder was located ever since. I have determined that it is trapped air which occurs especially if I drink water on an empty stomach, when I sit or lay down or reach out with my right arm. If I take Gas X, it can often prevent a spasm from happening, but sometimes the spasms wake me up out of a sound sleep. They don't last long, but take my breath away and double me over. I have had several ERCP's and one MRCP and dr.s say they can't see any problems. I went in for blood work one time right after attack, but dr didn't say anything about results. Could this be SOD?
Michell. I was reading your post about SODs. I had my gallbladder removed over a year ago. Since I have been having Spasms in the middle of my chest. Painful, they drop me. However, they only last a few seconds. I had a CT Scan that showed slight inflammation of my Pancreas. The spasms have been coming less often. Maybe 6 or so a week. So, I didn't follow up with my GI Doc that the regular doc refered me to after my CT Scan. Should I? I don't want to spend hundreds of dollars treating something that is bareable, but I don't want to have a major issue in the future. What is your thoughts? Thank you so much, Jeni Caby ***@****
