Hello, I'm wondering if anyone can help or share some advice.
I have been suffering with pain in my right side and right upper back for 5 years. Just short of 3 years ago I had my gall bladder removed as this wasn't functioning.
After the operation, I never saw anyone but still suffered with the pain time to time in my side and upper right back. I just thought I had to deal with it.
I have what you could say an "episode" where I'm in so much pain, vomiting dark green bile and does make me quite sick. It's not great waking up when I eventually get sleep to have this dull pain in my side every day. So I decided to get back in touch with the specialists 3 years later.
Xrays show I'm constipated, but laxatives don't seem to help. I try to stay away from food that I know will upset me, but it's hard when you're only 23 and wanting to taste new things and be like people your own age. Not that I've ever been a huge fan of alcohol, but that's the worst for me I find.
I've recently seen the specialists and results from a recent endoscopy show ulcers in my oesophagus (possibly due to being sick). As the doctor was talking so quick all I took away from the appointment was to take it easy (not the advice I want after suffering for so long), write down what I eat etc. And have blood tests when I'm in pain.
It wasn't until my grandad had mentioned the he suffers with diverticulitis and supposedly my dad does, that this was something the specialist said. Could this be hereditary??
Exercise does seem to help me, especially when I am in discomfort. I'm trying to gain a healthier lifestyle and drinking more water.
Thank you if you spend some time reading and thabk you in advance for any advice you may give.
