Hi guys. Just wanna share with you what I am experiencing right now regarding my abdominal problem while I’m awaiting for further tests.
For 2 months, I’ve been experiencing dull discomfort in my right lower quadrant abdomen. Initially, I rarely felt it but these past few days, it is getting more frequent. And sometimes, the “discomfort” is turning into a moderate “pain” especially when I am moving/walking. Aside from the dull pain, I also started to experience IBS-like symptoms since 1 month ago—I felt bloated and full after eating a small amount of food/fluid, pass foul smelling gas more frequently, pass loose stool(not watery though) more frequently(before it was only once a day, now it became 2-4x a day), and my upper quadrant abdomen usually felt tender to touch. There are also rare times that I can feel the pain on different parts of my abdomen. Sometimes, I also feel nauseous but I have never vomited yet during this period. I also feel lightheaded sometimes although I started feeling light headedness 6 months ago which comes and goes so I’m not sure if it is related.
I already had a bunch of tests. My blood test showed normal results except for the marginal value on ALT. Abdominal ultrasound revealed fatty liver. CT scan on abdomen and pelvic area confirmed fatty liver and mildly prominent lymph nodes adjacent to caecum—which stated may indicate presence of mesenteric adenitis. In two weeks time, I’ll be undergoing stomach endoscopy and colonoscopy.
My GP suspects that it is due to IBS and the gastro that he referred me to suspects that I’m constipated. I asked them about my “mildly prominent lymph nodes near caecum” and they seem to just ignore it.
I also used to take Domperidone and Esomeprazole but they didnt’t seem to help.
Have you guys experienced the same symptoms I’m having? What were the findings? I’m also curious about the mildly prominent lymph nodes near caecum which is coincident to the right lower quadrant abdomen. I also haven’t done any stool tests. Do you think it’s necessary?
Thank you in advance.
