Greetings Christian .I am Dr. Phophalia. I am a General surgeon and I would assist you today.Do you have bloating, gas, tenderness and inability to pass gas (difficulty passing gas)?Dr. Arun
I tend to have a lot of gas but had none recently. There is a slight bloating in the stomach area. There is an increase in pain if I lie down or turn to either side.
I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.
Thanks for using JustAnswer.
This is the first time this has happened and my gall bladder surgery was nearly 2 years ago si I don't scarring could be the problem. I was just wondering if there was an blockage since it tend to have them fairly often.
I do also have Addison's Disease. Too much potassium is very toxic due to this condition, but again, I have had this condition for more than 20 years and this is the first occurance of this problem.
Just want you to know after speaking with you I went to the ER at my local hospitol and was diagnosed with extreme inflamation of both my liver and pancreas. I had surgery in a couple days to remove some stones that were lodged in the tubes leading from my liver and pancreas, but none were found. Instead they made incisions in case stone did show up they would pass more easlily. I have had no more pain and am having a follow up with my VA doctor on July 10.
Thanks Christian, for taking time for follow up. I really appreciate it. Occasionally there are very tiny concretions which block the bile and pancreatic ducts causing them to be inflamed and resultant paralytic ileus. It is good that passage of these ducts have opened up and you are pain free. You would need blood work for liver and pancreatic function tests on your July 10 visit to the doctor.It is great pleasure and privilege interacting you
