Hi Priscilla,
I can totally empathize with you. I also have off and on (more on) pain-high up under my right ribs. I am on reglan 3 x day but I know it is making my depression worse. This week I am limited to soft solids: yogurt, oatmeal, applesauce, fruit bars. I'm not sure what else they can do. I'm at the point that you are also. I am scheduled to see my doc next month. Hang in there.
