Undiagnosed bowel problems

Hi around 4 weeks ago i started having extreme sharp pains just under my ribs and in the middle (transverse colon area) i had surgery on this area 35 years ago (as a baby). I also noticed loud gurgling noises and a lump just above belly button which isnt always there but when it is i can deflate it so im not sure if this is just gas. Anyway ive had a colonoscopy done (50% only) because i was in alot of pain so they stopped it but said it was clear, endoscopy found a hernia, ct scan found 3mm kidney stone but unobstructing and abdomen xray found fecal loading (im currently taking lacido for this) everything else was clear but ct scan was hard to interpret due to fecal loading. Im in agony with the pain it comes on sharper with movement too. Around this time i also have other symptons, fatigue, cant concentrate or focus like i used to, no energy and have to lie on a slope on pillows to try to avoid the pain. Ive also lost weight and despite trying to put it back on it doesnt. Has anyone been through this?

Re: Undiagnosed bowel problems

Have you gotten a diagnosis yet? How are you doing? Having had surgery on your colon 35 years ago, this could be a bowel obstruction from adhesions. If that's what it was, I would hope it was diagnosed and treated by now!

My mom had a bowel obstruction from adhesions that formed after an appendectomy she'd had decades earlier.
