Avatar n tn I also had an ultrasound done for gallbladder ( no stones) and a hida scan which showed 22 percent ejection fraction.. My main problem is involuntary and continous belching after eating. General surgeon wants to remove my gallbladder. Can the hiatal hernia cause biliary dyskinesia? Should I get the hiatal hernia repaired instead?

Avatar m tn I am 58 years old female and had my gallbladder removed April 14, 2011 after 2 1/2 years of severe diarreah and vomiting. Finally, after losing 38 lbs., I told my doctor that something had to be done because I didn't think I could last much longer the way I was going and he sent me to a Gastrointestinal Specialist. She immediately ran an upper and lower Gastrointestinal Endoscopy in which she told me she found over 46 ulcers in my upper colon and 14 of them were bleeding.
Avatar f tn I woke up with a big abscess. Hurts like the devil. I knew the time would come when the need to take pain pills would come. Darn it! Going to try to ride it out over the weekend with just over the counter stuff. I know my teeth. ROOT Canal. DARN IT!!!!!
Avatar n tn abscess-pelvic area; few infections caused by PICC lines=treated succesfully. since surgeries last nov,has been and currently on TPN. in jan. of this year, mom came home still on TPN. her condition greatly improved. we were basically just waiting for her fistula to close. when first formed, it outputted nothing, then few dayslater, all of a sudden just came out. while at home,output slowly started decreasing-with bowel rest.
Avatar f tn Your bowels were moving better after the misery secondary to the bacterial overgroth related to te antibiotics given for your abscess most likely.
Avatar m tn With my friends recommendation we went to one of the doctor who was gastrologist and he suggested that this removal of gall bladder will not be a permannent solution in my wife case as the gall bladder swelling and acidity is causing this problems and he suggested Ganaton tablet for 4 weeks. After that it went ok and my wife was feeling good. After one year this problem has started and now she takes the medicine but still she does not feel comfortable for few days.
Avatar f tn It really stinks that here I was feeling good after getting the nasty gallbladder out and now I have the breathing issue. I was asked by the pulmonologist's receptionist if I had had a chest X ray and I told her no so it appears that will be done. I'm trying to remain positive in all of this. Thank you again.
Avatar n tn After numerous hospital visit it was decided that there was an abscess where my gallbladder was removed. Is the abscess caused by gall stones that were left in or as the radiologist said there was a surgical clip the cause of the abscess?
Avatar m tn my husband 60 years old had a colon surgery and gallbladder surgery as well. He has been diagnosed with colon cancer lll b. The surgery was a month from today (6-8-13). He's being prepared to start chemo in about two weeks from today. After his surgery, he has experimenting heavy night sweats, shortness of breath, and coughing. Are the night sweats a consequence of the colon surgery? he sweats every night, wetting the bed. My a/c is working fine, and the house environment is fresh and cool.
Avatar n tn but we are visiting a surgeon on Thursday for my 19 year old daughter after the GI said nothing was wrong. She had a HIDA scan 2 weeks ago..the gallbladder did not visualize well after 60 minutes, so they had to give her morphine & then her ejection fraction was calculated at 32% after an hour. The report said chronic cholecystitis as the diagnosis. No other test showed anything wrong..no stones, no elevated blood levels, no hernias or ulcers, etc.
Avatar n tn The anal pain may not be related to gallbladder removal. The commonest cause for severe pain while passing stools is fissure in ano. This is characterized by a crack in the skin of the anus. Anal fissures may be noticed by bright red bleeding if acute they may cause pain after or with passing stools. The cause for the tear is usually hard stools. The other causes for the pain can be an abscess, fungal infections or sometimes tumors.
Avatar m tn I am 58 year old female and had my gallbladder removed 4 weeks ago, my scars are totally healed and I was feeling great and resume my normal life and normal eating habits (meat included). I have started experiencing real bad upper abdominal pain just under my breast and the pain stretch right around my body. But worse part is where they removed the gall bladder. I do have a spastic colon and are a gerd (or is it gord) sufferer. Is this because of a wrong diet maybe the eating of meat?
Avatar f tn In November 2016 I had 2 gallstones removed, then in mid December I had my gallbladder removed laparoscopically (by a different dr.) which resulted in being hospitalized with complications including an abscess in abdomen, hole in duodenum, as well as having to have bile stents and bile bags put in for a period of time. I was discharged at the end of January. In February, when the time came to remove the last stent, the dr. could not remove it because I developed an esophageal stricture.
Avatar n tn First there was no excrement at all. After taking milk of magnesia the first time (after about 4 or 5 days of no movement) I had a day full of numerous almost normal consistency bowel movements, and thought I had turned the corner. After that, I still had problems moving my bowels, as the only thing that would come out was a clear fluid. During that time, I took milk of magnesia every few days. After a few doses, the movements changed from normal to diarrhea, with intermittent pain.
Avatar n tn When I went back for my 4 wk checkup the doctor asked me a lot of questions, one was if I had a period and I told him yes. He then informed me that some women do have periods after a hysterectomy. AFTER HAVING A 2ND PERIOD SINCE SURGERY I AM WONDERING IF THIS IS NORMAL OR NOT????? Everyone says it isn't.
Avatar f tn This discussion is related to Problems after bowel resection. In February 2006 I had an emergency bowel resection. For no apparent reason, a large portion of my small intestine had twisted and the blood supply to my intestine had been cut off and died. About 40% of my small intestine (ileum and ileocecal valve) had to be removed. For the next 2-3 months I had horrible diarrhea after everything I ate. Within one week I went from 135 lbs. to 115 lbs.
Avatar n tn After the initial pain of surgery subsided.she began having daily nausea and occasional vomiting. Now,3 months post-op, she has constant nausea and vomits usually dark yellow ro brownish liquid, sometimes very thick like mucous, once or twice a day. This is not related to mealtime. At first after the op she had a lot of diarea but that has mostly b een replaced by constipation. She is 67 and has occasional bouts of heart failure,no heart attacks or diabetes.
Avatar f tn I am having the same symptoms after 25 years of my gallbladder surgery I have been having excruciating pain in my ribcage area and almost like gallbladder pain all over again.. I had xrays done today and when the doc had them on the lighted panel I could see the staples in the image at the exact areas I am having my pain. When I asked her what those were she quickly pulled th film and walked out of the room to converse with another person.. I could hear them muttering something..
Avatar n tn In March 2007 I had an Inguinal Hernia repair operation on both sides after I had experienced bad groin pain for about six weeks. About three weeks after the surgery, I developed testicular pain in both left and right testicle with the left one swelling up dramatically. After going for a scan it was observed that I had a hydrocele on my left side. Six weeks after My original operation, I was hospitalised after I developed severe pain on the right side of my groin.
1361959 tn?1277687317 Also some things that set it off is just the pressure on my stomach when im lying on my back, my clothes against it, if i even touch or rub the area, sometimes after a bm, coughing or sneezing feels like i move something out of place. I havent noticed anything relating to my diet.
Avatar n tn I recently had a non-laparoscopic appendectomy (not ruptured), in which the surgeon also found some inflammation of the colon about 2" above the appendix. This was also consistent with the pre-op pain being a bit higher than is traditional.
222080 tn?1189759422 I was rushed to hospital for surgery 8 weeks ago where a large abscess was found in my pelvic area. After they drained it, a filshie clip was found in the cavity of the abscess. What concerns me is they couldn't find the other clip, I am so worried the same thing will happen again. I was not aware that my procedure I had done18 years ago to have my tubes cut involved the use of anything foreign (filshie clip) to be placed in my body, the CT scan I had done 8 moths ago revealed this fact.

Avatar f tn Hi Welcome to the MedHelp forum! If you are having pain after gall bladder surgery then it can be due to acidity, hepatitis or liver infection, duodenal ulcer, adhesions, or due to an abscess inside. Liver function tests along with pancreatic function should be assessed. Consult a doctor to treat acidity with antacids and drugs like Omeprazole along with diet control. Adhesions can only be known on laparatomy. Do discuss this with your doctor and get yourself examined. Take care!
Avatar n tn Did they remove the gallbladder also?? You may have more gallstones IN the gallbladder that can irritate even before they get to the bile duct.
Avatar n tn the gallbladder was a dead organ. had gallbladder removed thru laproscopic surgery on 9-19-03, had 10 days of no symptoms, at most mild phantom pains, on the 11th day the same pre-surgery pain resumed in full force. today 10-21-03 going back to internal surgeon. my gi dr said the surgeon may have nicked an organ or duct or i may have residual bile sludge/bile leak. pre-surgery i was having gallbladder attacks indiciative of gallstones... no tests showed gallstones...
