I would really appreciate some help. I feel like I am losing the plot and losing faith in the NHS.
I had my gall bladder removed in January 2015 as I had stones, causing me to constantly vomit and have major abdominal pain. Since it has been removed, I have not been vomitting and I no longer feel the constant nagging pain of where it used to be.
In return though, I now have a horrible throbbing, full pain in my upper abdomen where I imagine my liver is. The pain is not constant. The pain only happens randomly in the middle of the night, or during the day if I haven't eaten in a little while. During the night I just wake up to the pain, but during the day it feels like I am a bit peckish, then within a few seconds it feels like I have been starved for weeks and am buckled over holding myself. The only way to make the pain calm down is water, a tiny bite of food, or buscopan. But there is no other symptoms than this pain.
I have been to hospital with the pain twice, and both times they assumed IBS. I visited my doctor who gave me (not sure what it was called) a drug to take daily for 3 months, but it had no effect whatsoever. I have had a blood test, but the results came back clear. There is no swelling during these attacks, or redness, or anything at all really!! I am due to have an ultrasound to see if anything can be seen but I'm not hopeful.
I eat well and exercise so I don't think it is anything to do with my diet, I have limited fats, spicy food, and alcohol. I stopped dairy and gluten for a while to see if it made a difference, but it didn't.
Does anybody have any clue what this might be or is anybody experiencing this as well? I genuinely have no idea what to do. I feel like the NHS just fobs me off every time I go back in to get it sorted out.
