My internist is referring me to a surgeon to examine possible Lipoma's in my upper right abdoman. These are hard lumps that seem to have appeared quite a few years after my gall bladder removal from having gallstones. Are there possibly other reasons that these lumps could be caused from? I have had an endoscopy that showed gastritis, and I have had a colonoscopy that diagnosed microscopic colitis. I have swallowing problems, some choking, bloating in my upper abdoman under my breasts. I also have GERD/Reflux, and on-going diarrhea problems, generally curtailed by meta-mucil. I take quite a lot of pepto-bismul as well, plus nexium. I do have a weight problem which I am well aware makes these problems worse.
Bonnie, there are many people who have intestinal or abdominal lipomas and as far as anyone knows they're not 'due' to anything specific other than they may be 'programmed' genetically in some manner. Sometimes lipomas run in families.
If you have microscopic colitis I hope you're looking into the possibility that a gluten-free diet might be of help in your case. Gluten is now being found to be tied into the problem although it's not yet known how it works. Since gluten can also produce some rather strange symptoms in some individuals who are celiac, it's possible that some of your other symptoms might also be resolved if a gluten-free diet works for you.
