Don't want to go into too much deatail but I have had my gall bladder out and an umbilical hernia repair. I have suffered with nausea, constipation and sickness for around 5 years. I have had 2 endoscopies both showing severe stomach inflammation and also evidence of bile in lower duodendum. I am negative for helico bacter and everything else they tested for (I assume cancers). What I cannot understand is the following and would love to know if anyone experiences something similar:
A) Why do I feel better when I eat high calorie, unhealthy food and excessive amounts? I go to the toilet better (runny stool sorry for detail!) and my nausea disappears
B) Why do I also feel better when I drink alcohol?? If I go out for a few drinks whether it is beer, wine or spirits the more I drink the better my nausea and stomach issues. This seems to go against all the stuff I read about these stomach complaints. Has anyone experienced anything similar?
I would also love to know what I should be doing with my specialist. He is completely indifferent, he wants rid of me but he has not even given me a diagnosis. He only sees me every 9 months and between appointments I have no help. I have been with him for almost 4 years and have suffered throughout. I have had no motility study although motillium (domperidone) does help intermittently, no stool study, no barium swallow, no colonoscopy, no Ph test and nothing else. I am a 40 year old man who is just at the end of his tether. I am always in a bad mood due to this and my wife and daughter never see the ebst of me anymore. I have an appointment due in June.........what should I demand of my gastro specialist. I have had enough and I need to get answers to this. I would even be willing to pay for Linx surgery privately if I could at least get a definitive diagnosis of my problems. God I am so gutted about this, any help or advice would be really gratefully received. Many thanks.
