I strongly encourage patients with recurrent or persistent symptoms of abdominal pain to see the doctor. Only by doing the appropriate tests can a cause be determined and specific therapy begun. The negative ultrasound and Cat scan represent important pieces of information. Additional tests including endoscopy may be needed if pain persists
I think you should see the gastro for the endo. It is not surgery and is only mildly uncomfortable. Besides, they may even give you an amnesia type anesthesia. It would rule out some problems and give him or her a place to start looking for the cause of your pain. It sounds a lot like gall bladder to me, but I am not a health professional.
Just another note: have you talked with your primary physician since the visit to the gastro? If not that's the place to start. I have had 5 or 6 upper rt abd pain attacks about 5 hours after eating. Bad pain. After an ultrasound, which couldn't locate my gall bladder, my doc ordered a nuclear scan. This also couldn't locate my gall bladder. I am in limbo, waiting for my doc to get back with me and suggest the next step. I haven't seen any other post from patients who have had such scans without finding the gall bladder. I don't know what it means.
55 year old hysterecotomy done with known acid peptic diease. have got severe radiating pain on the left side of my abdomen. Endoscopy done two years back revealed errosive gastritis and on treatment.Now USG abdomen shows stone in the gallblader with prominent pancreatic duct.kindly let me know what i should do?
If the pain is aggravated after eating my quess is gallbladder.
An ultrasound and CT should reveal the presence of gallstones. Sludge may take more diagnostics. In the absence of gallstones or sludge a test to measure gallbladder contraction might be performed. In anycase you must first get to the doctor. If the pain gets to be imbearable go to the emergency room.
I had my gallbladder removed a few months ago preceded by pain similar to yours.
Sounds like either gall bladder disease or something related to your pancreas. More likely gall bladder. You need to see your doctor ASAP and get to the bottom of it. Don't wait.
