Re: Abdominal Pain Going on 6 months - Help Please!
You have a lot going on so it's hard for anyone to give an opinion, not being a doctor. I will tell you that I had pains for years and many ultrasounds for gallstones all of which showed none. Finally, I went to a GI dr. who ordered a HIDA scan and sure enough, my gallbladder wasn't functioning well and I had it out.
As far as the possible reflux, they'd see that on an endoscopy, esophageal irritation. I have it and even on Prevacid, I wouldn't eat gyros, cheeseburgers, etc. Prevacid helps but not always 100%. The last endoscopy I had showed mild irritation and that's after being on Prevacid for 2 years. So I am still careful...and now after the gall bladder is out I have to be on lowfat anyway. For starters, try to eliminate fats and follow all the reflux guidelines, no acidic foods, nothing after 7 p.m., raising the head of your bed, no fatty foods, etc...you can look this up. I hope you feel better and maybe post the outcome after you get your results.
