Had GBS about 5 years ago

Recommended Posts

Last June I started having pain in my lower right abdomen. It is so bad that I have to take Oxy for it. They have checked for bladder stones, did a complete blood panel, colonoscopy, MRI and nothing. 
Is it possible it has something to do with the surgery? I do not have my gall bladder so its not gall stones and they checked and its not kidney stones. 
I think the next thing they are going to do is check that its not something with the surgery. I live in Sweden so it takes a bit longer for them to do things here than in the US: 
This started after I had a UTI that I put off for a bit getting treated. I was busy and just let it go but it did not do any damage as they checked all that.

How about ulcers?   I have been having pain on right side in abdomen and it comes and goes.  I had an EGD done almost 2 months ago and it come back erosive esophagitis grade C.  I assume my right abdomen pain has something to do with it, but forgot to ask.  I am having another EGD done soon, as they upped my PPI to see if it would take care of it.  Personally I don't think it has fixed it because I am still having burning pain. 

Hope you get some answers soon, please keep us posted.:)

RLQ pain first thought is always appendix but all the tests you've had would rule that out.  Ovaries sometimes can be the source of lower abdominal pain but you would think an MRI would identify any sort of cyst or torsion.  Perhaps adhesions from previous surgery?  It's good you are getting a good thorough workup and I hope they figure it out soon.

With the erosion, I think I would ask about adding Carafate, which coats the ulcerated area and protects it from acid.  Especially since you're still having symptoms.  Yikes, that sounds dreadful!

My Dr said they have done all the tests, blood work and everything has come back normal. The only thing they have not done is the one that they stick down your throat and I am so not doing that. I will die. I just saw her on Tues and she is sending a letter over to the surgeon at the hospital and asking that they do a laparoscopy to check to make sure nothing has gone wrong with my GBS. 
I had the Colonoscopy 3 weeks ago and I still have diarrhea. Sorry about being so graphic. As I think back before this happened and its been going on since June of 2018. I live in Sweden now and as we have great healthcare they are very slow.
For about a year or so I have not been able to eat much. I would get sick. I can not eat anything sweet which all of that is a good thing since I do need to loose weight. When I had my surgery and was losing they drs put me on meds that make you gain weight. I finally got off them in March and bam started losing the first week. I want to lose about 75 more lbs and since I am losing around 5 lbs a wk that wont take too much longer.  
Now with this stomach pain and everything I am lucky if I eat a piece of toast every day. I do drink alot of water and juice to stay hydrated and the juice is just for the sugar so I dont get sugar drop.
