i have been stomach problems for 4 years i m 23 yrs old male. i have exessive bloating and burping i was feeling lower abdominal pain which was dull but continuous my doctor asked me to remove my appendix 2 years ago i removed my appendix one year there was no pain after removal of appendix but from last year i have been again experiencing dull pain in my right lower abdomen pain with excessive burping and gas the pain remain for 10 or more days and then goes for 10 or 15 days and come again and i pass stool 1 or two times a day but most of the times i feel i m not fully  evacuated and some times i come across diarrhea, rarely i feel fully evacuated. five weeks before i have been diagnosed with h pylori positive in stool for which i hav taken two antibiotics and  proton pump inhibitor and metronidazole for 25 days but my dull right lower abdominal  pain is with me and also excessive  burbing and bloating. i m a third year MBBS student plz guide me doctors.

    Go back to your doctor and get re tested to see if you still have h pylori.  Also ask about IBS which can cause the same symptoms you are getting.  Having your appendix out or other stomach surgery can trigger IBS in some people.  Ask for an endoscopy, colonoscopy, CT and celiac testing.  If all these are negative, IBS can be diagnosed.
