I had a stents placed in my bowel duct after experiencing great pain. The Dr said I had calapsed bowel duct and after 6 wks they removed it. Now, 1 yr later I am experiencing the same pain again. This includes swelling, sensitive to touch, stomach upset, can not eat, when I bend over it actually feels like my ribs are touching the object and it is unpleasant. I live in Indiana about 1 hour from Cinncinati, can you help me?
If by bowel duct, you mean the common bile duct - and if you've had your gallbladder removed - it's possible you could be having a problem with either the bile duct again, or possibly with the duct from the pancreas. With either one of those, you should contact your doc and get checked out. It's possible you may be experiencing pancreatitis, or the lack of release of bile from the common bile duct. This is something that only a good GI doc will be able to diagnose and help you out with.
Make you you have your liver and pancreatic enzyme levels checked as soon as you can.
