I had intense pain...

I had intense pain on my left side of stomach by the belly button. Finally had a bm about an hour later. Was nauseous but didn’t throw up. No fever. Hardly any pain now after12 hours.

Doctor's Assistant: When did the pain begin? Have you used any medication for it?

It woke me up at 3 am. I did not take anything for it

Doctor's Assistant: Have you seen a doctor about the pain?

No I haven’t

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

I have had kidney stones before but no pain with them. My uncle had colon cancer. My dad had part of his colon removed because of a blockage

Hello,

Welcome to Justanswer!

My name is***** and am reviewing your question now.

Was this pain radiating to you groin? Any blood in urine?

Was your abdomen distended at that time? Are you able to pass gas?

The pain radiated down my groin into the top part of my leg. No blood. Abdomen slightly distended. Could not pass gas
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
No phone call

Thanks for the information.

It looks like you had partial bowel obstruction which can present with abdomen pain, nausea, and inability to pass gas. Since you had a bowel movement and your symptoms subsided, no immediate action is required. However, I do feel like you should get an ultrasound and blood test to see if there is anything significant. Other possibility would be passing a small kidney stone, but it has nothing to do with inability to pass gas or abdomen distention.

Please leave a positive rating by selecting 5 stars on the top of your screen so that I can get the credit for my time with you. If you have any follow-up question, you can reply to this post.

Regards,

Dr.Shah

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.

JulieLockesburg, AR

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.
