For over 3 months I have had swelling over the top portion of my stomach, left side, with sharp pains coming from my back to front. The stomach is not upset, I have had some constipation, but my stomach seems tighter each day. Scoped in stomach a month ago with negative results, glad bladder removed over a month ago, no pain or problems. Colon exam at same time.
do you drink at all? Pancrease funtion/liver funtion blood tests ok? That's probably first thing to ask for is liver pancrease tests especially after a gallbladder removal to make sure the sphincter of oddi isn't causing problems. There's also sometimes people get some condition like that after surgery and gb removal. That's one idea...
Sharp pains on upper left usually is stomach/pancrase/colon/small intestine..so since you just had gb removal that's one idea.. good luck :S
