pain and spasms after ERCP

My husband has had pancreatitis, he recently got his gallbladder removed which did not fix the problem. So the Dr did an ercp sphinterotomy which he was not happy with and a week after that he started have cramping and spasms about 4 inches on his right side and 4 inches down which he tolerated about 6 a day. Dr did another one last friday and he has been non stop cramping since. Dr doesn't seem to know why but continues to give him percosets and vicodin. We have kept a log and it seems as though everytime he eats anything the cramping starts and they can go to a pain level of 9. Waiting this weekend to see Dr on Monday but I just wanted to know if anyone else had this and what happened.
Thanks so much
