Just after a bit of advice. Ive got a swelling in my abdomen area that is very uncomfortable and has been for some time, (approx 8 weeks). Approx 2.5 inches in from my hip bone. It is obviously swollen to the eye and feel. My g.p sent me for an ultrasound which showed nothing, but the radiographer said it doesn't see into the stomach/ gastric areas.
I went back to my g.p who seemed happy with a clear u/sound. I asked about further tests and he said that they weren't neccesary.
I get pain in the area of the sweling and is tender to touch but there is nothing to feel if you know what i mean, no lump or anything.
The pain radiates onto my hip and almost in a straight line from under my rib cage down to my groin, and sometimes into my testicle area.
History of: erosive gastritis from previous use of steroid based pain meds.
Bowels are irregular at all times- no set time or amount, firmness varies.
Does this sound like a GI problem like the radiographer suggests?
Any other ideas please?
