So, I have been having gastro issues for years!!! Thankfully, nothing life threatening has come back. I have had a colonoscopy, endoscopy, CAT scan about 5 years ago (just showed excess bowel), tested for Celiac, and now awaiting HIDA result--the CCK part was so painful, but i am preparing myself for it to come back normal since I am doomed to get answers...I am at such a loss battling these issues (bloating to the point i look pregnant, constant abdominal spasms, gurgling, pressure, stiching pain on right side, period dissapeared for 5 years, etc. I hav developed anxiety from dealing with this...but here is the kicker...I had Inguinal Hernia surgery 6 years ago and honestly i havent felt the same since. From what i thought would "cure" that abdominal issue, it seemed to have gotten worse. I am on effexor 150 and the weight gain is no fun, nor can i lose weight no matter what i do. So the canundrum, do you think my discomfort is related to my surgery? Thanks for listening.
