Sharp pain, not gas

Did you have a ct scan of your abdomen?

And is there a lump under your belly button?

Customer reply replied 5 months ago
Upper abdomen gets very bloated

Can you please answer my questions though--

Have you had a ct of your abdomen?

Any change in bowel movements?

Any lump under your belly button?

Customer reply replied 5 months ago
I think there is a slight lump under my belly button. It oozed a lot after surgery. I did have a Ct scan when I was having the upper abdomen pain. My bowel movements are irregular and very thin

And what did the ER doctor have to say about this--why the GI referral?

my last visit on Friday evening they didn't do any tests because my tests from April didn't show anything
Customer reply replied 5 months ago
In April they did the Ct scan, ultrasound if my gallbladder and a chest X-ray

But what was the presumptive diagnosis on Friday?

Hello?

Sorry for the delay

Were you screened for an H pylori bacterial stomach infection?

Ask Your Own Medical Question
Customer reply replied 5 months ago
Blood work?

No, that would take a stool culture.

Ask Your Own Medical Question
Customer reply replied 5 months ago
No I was not

OK

Sorry for all the questions, but I think that's your problem

That infection can cause the symptoms you've been having

You need to be screened for that with a stool culture and it's easily eradicated with a course of oral antibiotics

Please let me know if you need any more information
