Customer Question
Hello. I had gastric...

Hello. I had gastric bypass 14months ago. Everyone once in awhile I get a wicked Center upper abdominal pain. Usually fetal position helps and laying flat makes it worse. It happens usually every two wks lasting for about twelve hours. The last one two nights ago I took tramocet Tylenol 3 and torridol and nothing dulled it. That was two nights ago. Yesterday evening I noticed my right shin felt weird. Puked my pants up and it was swollen from the knee down to ankle. This evening same leg once again has the same swelling.

Doctor's Assistant: What medications do you take daily? Are you allergic to any medications?

Omeprazol, modafinal, lately tramocet no I have no allergies

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

Since surgery lipase was elevated. Last test it was back to normal. Pancreas slightly elevated. One gallstone but was told not to worry about it. Low blood count and clotting

I just came online and saw your question unanswered for long.

What is your age and gender?

Do you have pain, redness, warmth and tenderness on calf?

Ask Your Own Medical Question
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
26 female. No warmth tenderness at all. Just tight and swollen
Doctor: Dr. Arun Phophalia, Doctor replied 7 months ago

You may need to get an ultrasound off swelling done. We need an high index of suspicion for a sudden swelling in calf to rule out blood clot (deep vein thrombosis). You need a blood test called D-dimer too.

If these come negative, you may do warm compresses and take Motrin.

Please feel free for your follow up questions.

I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.

Thanks for using Just Answer.

Would the severe centre abdominal pain be linked to the swelling in the one leg
Doctor: Dr. Arun Phophalia, Doctor replied 7 months ago

Yes, this may be linked to the swelling in leg as clot may migrate to abdomen.

You need to go to ER.

It is privilege assisting you.

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
