i have previously commented on a post regarding pain i have suffered in my upper right abdomen so thought i would update after an endoscopy today.
my pain had been going on for a number of years, slowly getting worse during each flare up moving round my side into my back and giving me very bad indigestion/reflux too. i had been sent for numerous ultrasounds to check gallbladder etc, had tests for h pylori bacteria and had several blood tests most recently in the last few months and all were normal. i had been prescribed omeprazole which made symptoms worse (and resulted in my gp sending me to hospital as i had such severe pains).
at my endoscopy they found stomach and oesophagus were normal but this test confirmed duodonitis and ive been referred back to my gp. the location would tie in with where i feel stabbing pains so makes sense. not sure what doc will recommend but hope its not more omeprazole!
anyway just thought id post this update as i know i liked to see the outcome of peoples tests and issues when i first found this site.
ps this site also helped me be prepared for my endoscopy. i went for throat spray only and no sedation. wasn't a particularly pleasant experience but nurses and consultant were all so nice and reassuring and it lasted only a few mins. i kept my eyes shut and focused on breathing!
