are these CANCER symptoms

Okay here is my story. Nine months after the birth of my first daughter I started having a feeling of pressure on my right side pretty much exactly where your gallbladder is (middle right side abdomen -right below rib). It was a distinct pressure, but no pain. After reading about gallbladder symptoms, I decided it could be the beginnings of gallbladder disease. So, I had an ultrasound which showed nothing and then a CT scan, which also showed nothing. Then, saw a GI doctor on Friday and was scheduled for an endoscopy the following Monday. However, and to our suprise, I took a pregnancy test - which was positive - and had to cancel my appt. During my pregnancy I had several ultrasounds - one of which they did a full abdominal - showed I had "sludge" in my gallbladder, which isn't too abnormal when you're preg. b/c your whole digestive system slows down. So, I was still thinking it was my gallbladder. After delivering daughter #2 I had a hida scan (which was just a few weeks ago) and it came out normal. Obviously it's not my GB. Went back to p. care Dr. who said it could be a "kink" in my colon. I've been very bloated and constipated w/mucousy stools. One time I had a *** of blood, but I've also had very bad hemoroids for a while (pregnancy, delivery...). My p care dr put me on Kristolose and said to see if that changed anything. I've been going to the bathroom a lot more regularly, but I'm still having the pain. I forgot to add that it has become painful - not a sharp pain, but more like a burning w/pressure. I'm going back to the GI dr on Friday so we'll see what he says, but I would love to hear anyone's imput.
Thank you,

Re: Question about pain

It could be stomach pain or referred pain from some other place.
I have had pain off and on below the right rib and hip and after many tests, --gallbladder removed(12/97) and 2 1/2 feet of my colon remove(4/02)--- No test has ever determined the cause??

I take a homeopathic remedy for spasm and cramps when needed--- Magnesia Phos-- It has been working!!!
