I recently quit doing prescription pain pills after doing them steadily for 8 years and everyone told me that after a week or two my stomach would feel better, but its been a month and my stomach is giving me as much pain as day 1. I was just wondering if there are any treatments or foods or whatever that could help my stomach pains go away or if Ive just done so much damage that they wont go away.

This is difficult to answer without more information. Were you using the opiates for abdominal pain, and is there any underlying pathology (IBS, IBD)? One strategy would be to try abdominal Tai Chi breathing. Briefly, as your lungs fill with air, expand your stomach (stomach away from spine.) When your lungs are fully expanded, bring your stomach up towards you ribs then exhale - 20 inhales, three times per day. I would also suggest you try to find someone who is trained in visceral manipulation.
