@blaise56 – Welcome to Mayo Clinic Connect! We are many posting here about similar problems, especially after having the gallbladder removed.
I have gone through same misery as you have had- including ER visits for acute and chronic pancreatitis.
The pancreatic pain is felt in the back and can be very severe.
Since they enlarged the opening of the bile duct the attacks are less severe.
It still happens after certain foods- I will have crampy pain and nausea for about 8 hours.
When you see your PCP you can discuss the possibility of getting a second opinion at a major university hospital or Mayo Clinic.
Have you lost weight during the past years?
