Hi i had bowel surgery 36 years ago (when i was born) the last 9 weeks ive had upper abdomen pain in middle where bottoms of rib cage meet, above bowel surgery and pulling like stabbing pains (which were chronic and make me cry) but when not chronic its always dull even throughout the night (never stops) i lost 2 stone because of this so now only weigh 7st 10. I have had endoscopy (found small hiatel hernia) colonoscopy which couldnt be completed due to pain although they class it as clear, ct scan which found unobstructing kidney stones and slightly swollen cervix, xrays and abdoman ultrasound which they say were ok. Waiting for results of Small bowel study MRI. Ive been in hospital 16 times the last 9 weeks because of the pain. The last doc said Gastritis (but wouldnt do another test) so put me on sucrafate, they also put me on peptac liquid, changed my omeprazole to lanzoprazole, sickness tablets, paracetamol, citalopram 16mg (there easy way out of it), movicol for constipation, ensure shakes because of weight loss and buscopan. Yet the dull ache is still there and last night the sharp twinges came back (seems to be with movement). Its affecting me so bad please can anyone help. The docs say sometimes people just have to live in pain if they cant find out why
