Been having lower right abdominal pain for months. Have had alot of different test and seen a surgeon. Having my 2nd colonoscopy in 2 months Dr said the firat one the prep didn'twork enough. Im worried i have adhesions from prior surgeries. Can’t seem any answers and pain is weekly.

    I had had an elastic band issue around my stomach just below my belly button, that is undiagnosed for over 1 year

      Wow. It’s frustrating. My primary is sure its adhesions and suggested laparoscopic surgery to make sure and remove them but the surgeon thinks i dont need surgery. So dealing with constant pain

    You need a cat scan to find the cause before you can do a cure.

      I have had 2 cat scans one wih contrast one without. Ive had internal and external intrasounds. Doing my 2 colonoscopy this week and also have hd a endoscopy and a barium enema xray. My primary said adhesions will not show up in the scans. One scan did show a hiatal hernia. So yes ive been doing alot of testing

    In your case you need a scan of your entire body, The cause could lie elsewhere.

      I agree. Frustrating when the doctors say and do different things. I can go days with no pain then have pain so bad cant hardly move. Some middle of the night or middle of the day. Thanks for your replies.

      I experience the same pain which is excruciating at times.  My gyn said it's probably adhesions from a hyst in 1986.  It feels like I would imagine an appendicitis attack.  Thank goodness it's not all the time.
