Hey I thought of something late last - in 98 I had mutiple surgeries and procedures and almost forgot this one- the symptoms got really bad (abdominal pain just below diaphram) - my doc reccommended an ERCP (Sic ?) it turned out that the sphincter to the opening of my stomach was not opening properly- as I recall they widened it and placed a temporary shunt in, which was removed a couple of weeks later, I still get the pain from time to time but it did help.........
