... have it done, since the surgery i have had chronic stomach pain. The doctors keep telling me that it's due to ulcers and the adjoining parts of the stomach and intestine. However, can ulcers be causing me this much pain? the doctor has had me on pain management with 7.5/500 lortab which seems to work quite effectively but no ulcer treatment has worked and this has been going on for a long time. They have done nearly every other test imaginable and say they dont find anything other than the ulcers. Am i doomed to this awful pain forever?
