Hello and welcome to HealingWell. I ran a search for Carafate or it's equivalent in Australia and I came up blank. Perhaps you could ask your Doctor what would be equal to this medication ? My heart goes out to you and your husband.
I think I answered your post in another thread. Reading this post however I am appalled to read your husband had the Upper GI Endoscopy and was dx with IBS. As the UGI scope is not able to view the small bowel or colon, which is where you would scope if you felt it was a bowel problem.
I suspect the pancreatic involvement that has been found is causing much of his pain also. Does he have any pain medication ?
Feel free to email me as my Father had pancreatic cancer so I am here to support you.
