Sucralfate/Carafate?

Hello,
I am about 4 months post gallbladder removal for gallstones. Since the surgery have have intermittent periods of a dull, nagging pain on the left front of my abdomen that is just under where my ribs end. The pain will be gone for days or weeks at a time, then come back. Its never severe but can be annoying enough to be distracting. Acid reducers haven't done much and I'm wondering if my stomach is irritated because of bile. I have read that Sucralfate (normally used to help heal ulcers) is useful for this and am wondering if anyone here has had any experience using it for this purpose. I am probably going to give the Dr a call tomorrow and see what he thinks. Any thoughts or experiences would be great.

Thanks!
