My 18 year old daughter has been having constant upper abdominal pain and upper left pain since the end of February. She also is nauseas and feeling like throwing up. This pain is a constant achy pain but increases. When her pain level gets to a 7 or above we usually end up in the hospital. We have gone to the ER 16 times since the middle of March. Her GI surgeon and her GI doctor have done every test on her and cannot find anything. Our family doctor thinks there is an adhesion and has discussed it with our surgeon but he doesn't think so since all other tests have shown nothing. He thinks checking for adhesions could cause more issues. I will back up and give a little history on my daughter. She has ulcerative colitis. She had a surgery where they removed her colon and rectum and created a j-pouch in August, a bag for 10 weeks and then the take down surgery in November. She was doing great for 3 months until the end of February, then she started having the pain problems and Nausea. She is seeing a pain management doctor but the medicines do not help. Now her pain doctor is going to do a celiac pain block to see if it helps. I just feel like something has been missed! They have done all tests possible. Upper and lower GI, blood work, ct scan, MRI, mrinterography , colonoscopy. Does anyone have any answers or suggestions for my daughter??
