Re: dull pain beside belly button

Hi Roze1,

I get that too - I think mine is I.B.S. - but it can be an 'umbilical hernia' or the first sypmtom of 'appendicitis' - so if it gets worse, get it checked out.

Hope you feel BETTER soon!!!

PS: I had my GB out (2) years ago and I wonder if there is scar tissue there causing problems-- just a thought I had.

Vanessa

Re: dull pain beside belly button

Hi Nessie, Great to hear from another Kiwi, I have been on Losec for 2 years now, maybe I,m immune to it. Have tried all sorts of witch dr potion etc, none work bit of a have? am oing to dr this week, just thought someone could throw some light on the problem first, as I am a bit scared of what it could be and want to be prepared! Reflux still there, but dull ache subsided slightly just feels like bruise when I poke it.
Will keep you up-dated on this
cheers roze

Re: dull pain beside belly button

good luck Rose, you can also consider surgery for your reflux my freind had chronic reflux and a hernia and got nisson etc 7 years ago, he drinks alcohol and eats what ever.........no issues except he lost heaps of weight the first few weeks which is a bonus for me if i do it, im not overwiegt but would like to be about 3 kilos lighter as over the years my jeans etc are getting a bit tight lol.........

anyway hope all goes well with your doctor
