Hello from JustAnswer.
It will help if you could provide any further information.
How long has this been bothering him?
What evaluation was done by his doctor?
What type of infection did the doctor say was present?
Which antibiotic was prescribed?
Has he ever had abdominal problems or surgeries?
Expert:  Dr. D. Love replied 2 years ago.
I had asked for some further information and have not heard back.
With the information that is available, I would first be concerned about either liver/gallbladder or pancreatic disease. Without knowing what evaluation has been done, it i difficult to know whether these conditions have been excluded as possibilities.
If not already done, it would be appropriate to obtain a general chemistry profile that would include liver function tests, a complete blood count, and pancreatic enzymes. An ultrasound would also assess the liver and gallbladder.
