SOD???

I had my gallbladder out two years ago. A couple of months ago I was in ER with back spasm and they gave me Morphine via IV line. Within half an hour I was absolute agony with upper right abdominal pain that radiated up to my right shoulder and down my arm (it even went numb). Since that attack I have been plagued with continuous upper abdomal discomfort, gurgling, wind and pain on both right and left side immediately under the breast. I even have shap chest pain. I wonder if I suffer from SOD and if so does anyone else have these symptoms. They often resemble symptoms of hiatus hernia, indigestion and heartburn.

Hi,

I had my gallbladder out this year. I have the left and right upper abdominal pains that you are describing. No one has been able to help me either. I do not know what SOD is. I have been thinking its a hiatus hernia. Dont know what can help, but at least you know your not alone in this. Sorry too, cause I know how severely it hurts.

Holycow, what you're describing sounds very much like SOD. Certain narcotics can cause a spasm of the common bile duct or sphincter of Oddi. Please check with your GI person for the possible use of specific muscles 'relaxation' meds to see if that will give you some relief.
