abdominal issues
I had laporoscopy gallbladder surgery in June 2013.  Since then I have developed a bulge on the right side of my abdomen.  I can see the bulge but there is really no bad that I feel.  I also have nausea and I have severe tearing pain between my chest and belly button area.  I had a barium CT scan which did not show a hiatal hernia and I also had a gastric emptying test which did show I have gastroparesis.  My question is has anybody experienced these same symptoms?  The tearing pain is so terrible that my husband had to call the rescue for me on Saturday to take me to the hospital.  X-rays showed no bowel obstruction.  I am at my wits end.  Doctors imply it is in my head and I feel terrible.  Not taking any pain med's since I can tolerate except when I get that onset excrutiating tearing sensation.

Hi there!

Well, without a detailed clinical evaluation it would be difficult to determine the cause of your symptoms. Possible causes of the bulge include scar tissue formation, lipomas, neurofibromas, growths from the abdominal wall or underlying structures; while the other symptoms could be related to GI infections/ inflammations, GI motility issues, micronutrient deficiencies, chest wall inflammation, causes related to the respiratory tract or cardiovascular system, hormonal/ endocrine abnormalities etc. I would suggest getting this evaluated by a primary care physician initially and depending on the cause diagnosed/ suspected, it can be managed accordingly or specialist care may be sought.
Hope this is helpful.

Take care!
