distended abdomen

I look 7 months pregnant and when I eat I look as if I am reaady to give birth. Have gastric bleeding ulcer and am not overweight (am skinny but tummy is big and I weigh more because of this) am constipated but am able to go every couple of days with help from laxatives. (Am on opiates for chronic pain hence constipation) Am I alone??

Hi there!

Well, without a detailed clinical evaluation it would be difficult to determine the cause of your symptoms. Possibilities that may need to be considered include hormonal/ endocrine issues, abdominal growths/ masses 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!
