Let us know how things go. Good luck ~ Goody
Thanks for the advice, Goody. I had lots and lots of tests late last year. At that time I had two hernias, including a hiatal hernia, in my chest & GERD, chronic gastritis, and diverticulitis. I had a Nissen Fundo in January of this year and was feeling better until July when all this diverticular business started again. I think the gastritis was from all the meds I was taking for the constant heartburn. Don't need to do that anymore since the fundo.
Low grade fever? This is difficult to answer. My normal temp is about 95.8. I've been running a temp of 98.9. This would be a low-grade fever for most people but for me, it's pretty high. They told me my gallbladder was OK last year. That's one of the things they checked when I presented in the ER with pain on my right side. That started a battery of tests.
If the pain gets intolerable, I will go to the ER. I don't currently have other symptoms, just the pain in stomach, back, and legs and the fever and bloating. Sometimes I feel better for a little while after eating.
Now to make matters worse, my mother is in the hospital with pneumonia (in PA) and I live in Costa Rica. In other circumstances I would fly up to be with her but can't with this pain.
