Received this response from the X-rays on the abdomen. "Distal half of the colon is moderately loaded with bowel content consistent with underlying constipation and there is mild gaseous distention of the hepatic flexure on the supiine film possibly secondary to the distal loaded colon. There is also very slight distention of some small bowel segments in the pelvis also considered to be secondary to the loaded colon. No radio dense calculus is seen.
I have a history of GERD and now I always have abdominal <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>distention</span> after meal, my stomach is almost always gaseous too... I can also palpate something in my stomach, It's like a swollen straight line from my sternum going through the navel. I don't what it is but its making me very uncomfortable and worried. Please help. Thank you.
Another possibility to consider is some kind of muscular pain or <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>gaseous</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>distention</span> of the bowels. Since your blood work-up is normal I don't think you need to be worried. I would suggest you use pain medication sparingly and re-visit your doctor only if it becomes unbearable.

The pain you describe is so similar to what I experienced. My diagnosis is colonic splenic flexure <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>distention</span>. I don't yet know the cause or treatment, but will post another note when I find out next week. I do know what happens to the colon. For some reason the splenic flexure on the upper left quadrant of the colon, up to the rib cage and around the side fills up with gas and extends upward to the diaphram. The gas is trapped and cannot be expelled.
