so about 3 years ago my boyfriend got a pain in his right side and went to the hospital and was sent home with no explanations. fast forward, hes now been to the hospital 7 times for the same pain and no one knows whats wrong has seen a urologist, appendix doctor and gi doctor and everything looks "normal" but hes still in a lot of pain and its getting worse. we've been told he has kidney stones by one hospital and then another hospital says he dont have kidney stones and then they said his appendix was enflamed gave him antibiotics to get it down and sent him home. Then they said his appendix was enlarged but they didnt wanna remove it and then they said it was normal. hes had 3 ct scans in the last week. i know thats bad but we are desperately trying to figure out whats wrong. He says it feels like a small chefs knife is stabbing him. The pain goes and comes and it throbs when he has it. the other night we came to the hospital yet again where they tell us "everything looks normal" but he had what looked like blood in his stool and when he was in pain i could feel it swollen right where he said it was hurting and a little discoloration and a vein popping out. He was able to circle the exact spot and how big the pain ranges from. The pain radiates to his lower back and sometimes his left side. Hes lost a lot of weight and has a hard time eating due to nausea. Hes been up sometimes through the night vomiting and says its because it hurts so bad it makes him sick. He hardly sleeps because he cant get comfortable. Im very worried about him and every hospital we have been to says they dont see nothing wrong. They want us to do outpatient follow ups but Im afraid those may take too long. I believe he may have chronic appendicitis because ive been researching and in my research it says chronic appendicitis can go and come and hurts in your right side and where he drew the diagram for the doctors in my opinion and no in not a professional but have done studying in the medical field his diagram looks exactly how the appendix would look to me. in the exact spot id think the appendix would be and in my research it says chronic appendicitis could be hard to diagnose until it becomes acute appendicitis. This has been a nightmare. He already has a hard time eating and every time we come to the hospital they starve him just in case he needs a surgery or procedure. Today they are doing an endoscopy looking for stomach ulcers but i dont think its stomach ulcers. hes had so much blood work and urine and ct scans and even a colonoscopy yet no one can find anything wrong with him. Please someone give me some good advice I can present to the drs.
