Abnormal Abdominal pain in upper quadrant of chest

Posted , 3 users are following.

i have suffered from reflux for some time and in January this year pain got severe in Setember I had a operation (Nissen fundoplication) .

I still have severe pain in right hand side of chest consultant says it is nothing to do with gastro , a respiratory specialist says lungs are fine , I have had a ct scan nothing shows . I have also had spirometry test and lungs come back fine yet I still have severe pain which gets worse when I eat the slightest bit of food . I have seen specialist who thinks that the wrap could be too tight that he did . BUT the pain is so debilitating . I am on morphine now but the pain is coming over the top of the drug, Any suggestions because I am running out of ideas and no one it seems can help

    I'm sorry for previous typos ... Turmuric . Do you sleep alot ?  Pain worse on eating?  I find it incredible that so many are expeiriencing this crippling identical pain yet no one seems to be able to put their finger on it?  A and Emergency on Friday with my daughter after three weeks of bent over double agony and the hospital said its a stomach migraine...  I've looked it up and it sound similar but a stomach migraine lasts up to 3 days...my daughter has been over 3 weeks continuously, like you.... for her this is the second flare up since July.  The hospital thought back then it was her appendix or parasitic worms :-(

      Also claud i was diagnosed as coeliac 5 years ago by a so called gastro specialist . When things went bad for me this year and I had to have oesphagus wrap performed to stop acid my new specialist took hundreds of biopsies and confirmed i was NOT gluten intolerant and never had been. I think the problem is related to sugar , slow digestion since the wrap and that food is fermenting above the wrap. This can be solved with a balloon inserted into wrap to ease it off . My main concern is pain management as I am in a lot of pain and although I do not allow this to affect my daily life it is hard to bear and does impact on my life .

    Not sure why the site looged me out and back in as this but dadvid 45409 is actually me!

    Im seeing dr in the morning , I have had ct scam, mri, scan had breath test etc etc. We think that since the oesphagus wrap that the wrap is too tight the specialist agrees and has agreed to insert balloon into wrap to open it a bit seemingly food is lodging in windpipe and is fermenting which is causing a pain very similiar to stomach acid . It all makes sense in a way as sure enoug pain gets worse a few hours after eating when food has had a chance to ferment , add sugar into the equation and the fermenting goes crazy and pain increases and morphine intake goes up. I cannot go on taking morphine and been in pain all day . I am going to take wife with me to see my dr tomorrow
