In July I was admitted to hospital with severe upper middle and right abdominal pain, I developed diarea and high fever and was diagnosed with intra abdominal sepsis, I had ultrasound, CT and endoscopy all negative. Sepsis was treated with iv antibiotics. Blood tests showed anemia and slight elevated lipase. After discharge I continued to have upper right pain mainly at night and sometimes a low fever I was admitted to hospital again at the end of 2013 again with pain and high fever which lasted for nearly 2 weeks, again it was treated with iv antibiotics,I had further ultrasound and mrcp again all negative, again bloods showed anemia and my ALT levels were elevated. Had sigmoid flexi scope which showed some patchy inflamation and biospy suggested ulcerative colitis. I was discharged with the diagnosis of unexplained pyrexia. My GI consultant was not convinced about the colitis causing the upper pain and arranged a EUS which was negative and a colonoscopy which showed no inflamation this time and I am waiting for biospy results but looks unlikely to be colitis causing all this. My Gi referred me to a surgeon who has mentioned taking out the gallbladder despite all tests being negative, but he says it is my decision to make and it may not cure the problem. I am so unsure of what to do and would appreciate any comments and suggestions.
