I went to the ER in pain again. This time my pancreas enzyme levels were normal. It wasn't pancreatitis. My liver enzymes were normal too.
The ultrasound picked up something it had not before. Sludge was detected in my gall bladder. The thickened bile can crystallize and turn into gall stones. Those stones in turn can cause pancreatitis and liver problems. I was told I should have my gall bladder removed. I'm meeting with a surgeon soon.
One dose of hydrocodone let me ignore the pain enough to sleep. I'm feeling like the attack has passed.
