I need your help. I had my Gallbladder surgery three years ago since then i was noticing a light pinch at the same place. I thought that it might be a scar that was left after surgery but seven mounts ago that small pinching exploded like a bomb in me. i was in a severe pain in the upper right side under the rib cage then it was going to my back and my shoulders and then it began going to my left side too. i can only sleep on my right side and sometimes on my back but not on the left side. If accidently i turn to my left side pain would wakes me up immediately and then it stays there for almost one day. The pain goes to front chest to my back and up to my shoulders and sometimes it burns and tingles as well. my belly button is sensitive too. my bowl movement changed as well during past seven mounts it is small and hard lumps. I went to many GI doctors none of them could help me since all my tests came back normal. i even went back to my surgeon and asked him if he left something inside of me or if he did something that I don’t know abou it but he simply denied. i finally went back to the hospital and asked for all my medical records i found out that the surgeon during the surgery performed Cholongiogram to take x-ray with injection on me to see if there were any stone in my bile duck without my family and i permission. this test has its own risks which i did not know and he never told me about it. so now i want to know is this Cholongiogram performed in all Gallbladder surgeries? did anyone of you had this procedure done during the surgery? if yes did you suffer the consequence like i do?
i am searching on google day and night to find the reason to this pain and i come with many result such as IBS, Pancreatitis, Liver dame, Bile duct damage and Colon damage. and almost all of them has the same symptoms. Sometimes i think it might be a nerve that is damage due to the burning sensation that i get in that area. Sometimes i think it might be chronic pancreatitis because i have pain in both sides which radiates to my back and shoulders. But then i don’t have greasy and yellow stool and all the enzymes and images came back normal I have only pain. Therefore, i eat cheese and greasy food on purpose just to see if i will get the pain but i don't. but if i move suddenly to right or left or try to lift something i get the pain back again. then i get confused the pain its mostly behind my stomach and up to my back and chest it’s like someone is holding my breath. if i swallow something little hard unlike soft food i feel the pain until the goes down. then because of the constipation problem i think that i might have IBS but then the IBS pain is mostly in the lower part of the abdomen not upper part. i am completely lost. i do not know what to do and which doctor to see that could find the reason of this pain. is there anyone of you that have pancreas problem if yes what are the symptoms? Does everyone with pancreas problem get the same symptoms?
