Medical Questions? Ask a Doctor Online!
Hi. Dr Rick here. I completed an Internal medicine internship in NYC and have two decades of clinical experience. How can I assist you today?
Since you have had your gallbladder and appendix out you really need a good workup to figure out what is going on, especially since the visit to the ER didn't find anything and you are still having pain.
What could be causing this? You might have a retained gallstone in your common bile duct with secondary pancreatitis, GI infection, stomach ulcer, liver problems or even issues with your kidneys.
The only way for you to get to the bottom of what is going in is to have a complete examination your your internal medicine MD.
Does this make sense to you?
