Avatar n tn I am also interested in having a Gastric bypass and need to know what complication if any will I suffer from having the bypass or is it possible to have the Gastric Bypass with this condition.
Avatar f tn Even after you've told them you've had a gastric bypass they wouldn't think of it. So if you're like me and had an intestinal bypass as well, your gall bladder, and other things, have been moved around. My gall bladder is on the left. Get a HIDA scan, and here's what gall bladder attack symptoms are. GALLBLADDER ATTACK SYMPTOMS specifically Please note that if you are in severe pain and particularly if your attack symptoms are accompanied by fever DO SEEK MEDICAL ATTENTION IMMEDIATELY.
Avatar f tn Hello. I had gastric bypass in 2008 and have had a few problems since. The latest is a constant upper right abd. pain just under my rib cage. I have had my gallbladder & appendix removed and have had a total hysterectomy. I have a odd taste in my mouth, kind of a metalic. My stomach is warm to the touch and to me seems to be a little distended and is very sensitve to touch. I've had kidney stones prior, but am having no UTI symptoms.
Avatar m tn It was found that my stone was calcium based and I was told to avoid all dairy products as well as some fruit and veg. There are 4 different types of kidney stones. Unfortunately, once you have had kidney stones the chances of getting another one are much higher.
Avatar f tn but i have been in constant pain for bout 3 months total now and i'm about to come out of my skin. I've had a bleeding ulcer in the last 6 months and gastric bypass in the last year and half, and so they have to be careful what they give me. Does anyone think this was caused by the kidney stone or herpes? i've also had a history of shingles but don't have any rash but this is in the same leg. Any ideas on what to do? I'm open to anything...
Avatar f tn I know I've flushed out kidney stones. I've figured out that the cause of my kidney stones is high fructose corn syrup in some of my favorite foods like fig bars which I've given up. I would not be surprised if that had something to do with my gall stones.
Avatar f tn I had gastric bypass 7/02, 7/03 had to Lap Chole and 2 kidney stones. Ever since the lap chole I have had abd pain mid right radiating to right flank and right shoulder. I have had Abd CTs=sm ventral hernia lower abd and Endoscopy=sm ulcer with repeat endo after treatment=healed. Sometimes eating helps it, but then I am nauseated. I really need this pain to stop.
Avatar f tn The reason for increased likelihood of the development of kidney stones following this type of gastric bypass surgery is not entirely understood. A possibility is that the anatomic rearrangement caused by the operation establishes a mildly malabsorptive state, which may be responsible for the increase in the excretion of urinary electrolytes. Kidney stones could also result from an alteration in the gut microflora (normal bacteria) caused by the procedure.
Avatar f tn Intermittent sharp pain between left kidney and moving round to the front. Ben tested for infection(none) and kidney stones(negative) no blockages in renal system. Doc says some kind of muscular problem and has given me anti-inflamatory pills. Seems to have very little effect. Often when I urinate the pain goes. Its disturbing to say the least. If anyone has any thoughts - grateful to hear from them.
Avatar n tn Had hysterectomy 8 years ago and had gastric bypass 2 years ago. Have just received the results of C T scan which revealed that do not have kidney stones but do have bilateral ovarian cysts. Physician is going to monitor for next couple of months. Are there any ways to determine if these could be cancerous? I am about to undergo surgery for excess skin removal, now, I am not sure if I should proceed or wait until I receive information on this matter.
Avatar f tn Well time rocked on and had stone removal and stent retrieval and was told to lose weight (320 lbs at this time). So in May of 08 I had gastric bypass, big mistake. After I lost 80 lbs or so I had a cat scan for the flank pain to confirm another stone, well this time I was told I had MSK. No 24 hr urine, no blood tests, nothing but the CT. Anyway I guess my question is should I find a kidney Dr. because I personally feel like a brisket and am tired of being cut on and lithotripsied.
Avatar n tn I had a duodenal switch with bypass surgery about 4 years ago and have had kidney stones since. During a diagnostic image for stones, a nodule was noticed on my Right lung. 6 months later 5 more were found all under 1CM all calcified and the pulmonary clinic I saw indicated to me that they were not concerned at this point. I have read that SPN is 40-50% likely to be cancer and now I have MPN and some pain in my affected lung. TB testing is negative.
1480722 tn?1287559272 I am a post gastric bypass patient ( nine years ago) with mulitple problems that no one in my town can seem to answer of fix for me. I weighed 436 at surgery and am now 132. I have had major deteriation of my nasal cavity, excessive bleeding from the nose. I have cysts all around and in my ear that bleed daily. the outter ear is thickening and enlarging. I have fluid build up inside my ear and head that drives me insane. Pressure from this tremendous. I have no energy. I am depressed.
Avatar m tn Low hematocrit is due to anemia, malnutrition, destruction of red cells by spleen, bone marrow failure, and blood loss as in stomach ulcers and irritable bowel disease or in kidney stones. Low hemoglobin is seen in low iron, kidney diseases, cancers (leukemias, Hodgkin's lymphoma's, myeloma, and other blood cancers), aplastic anemia and myelodysplastic syndromes (bone marrow disorders), cirrhosis of liver, lead poisoning, and in vitamin deficiency.
Avatar f tn Hi me again, After my band was fitted 7 years ago now, I went to a lot of meetings with other people who had different types of gastric operations in the UK. Most of the people who had 'gastric bypass' ALL looked very white/pail and ALL of them had absorption problems and 'dumping syndrome' I seriously think at the time the band was the best choice for me anyway, especially as it is reversible, bypass is NOT! but I'm not sure of the relatively new 'sleeve' operation it my be good to?
Avatar n tn Anyway, once my weight loss plateaued I started having other medical issues like kidney stones and a-fib. I dealt with this for several months and just recently saw my endocrinologist in February and found out that I had secondary hyperparathyroidism caused by a Vitamin D deficiency...as well as hypothryroid. The hyperparathyroidism is what is causing the a-fib and kidney stones to the best of their knowledge. It all comes down to the Vit. D though.
Avatar n tn Was there a previous trauma or injury in your back? Kidney infection or kidney stones could present as blood in the urine and back pain with painful urination. However, if there is pain when twisting, bending or even sitting, this could be from muscle spasm or pulled muscle. Apply warm compress or use an anti-inflammatory medicine for the pain and get rest. If the pain persists or if your symptoms get worse, it is best to see your doctor. Take care and keep us posted.
Avatar f tn * Inadequate iron intake * Rapid periods of growth * Heavy menstruation * Pregnancy * Frequent or excessive blood donations * Surgery or accidents * Medications that cause bleeding such as aspirin, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medicines (NSAIDs) * Bleeding due to conditions such as ulcers, haemorrhoids, hiatal hernias, colon polyp, colon cancer * Hypochloridia (low stomach acid), achlorhydria (no stomach acid) * Bowel diseases such as Crohn's disease, ulcerative colitis, Celiac
Avatar f tn When I was only 13 I was diagnosed with kidney stones. My doctors thought this was a strange occurance but nothing was ever done and I just learned to deal with them. About three years ago when I was 20 I gained a lot of weight seemingly over night. I went from 5'9" and 160 pounds to 250 pounds in a matter of months. Since then I have seen several speicalists in order to get to the bottem of the weight gain and overall feeling of just being sick.
286124 tn?1214942128 i woke up at 5am with the worst pain across the top of my abdomen. now that was not weird for me. i had gastric bypass in 2001 and a year after the surgery, these pains across my abdomen started up. i would take 2 tums and it would go away. i had been taking goody's for most of my adult life. i got hooked on them (not suprising!! LOL) and would take a goody and chase it with a coke "a fix".
Avatar f tn I'M ANGEE a 38 y/o woman mother of 3 (19,18,14) i had a spinal fusion in 2004, hysterectomy in 2008, gastric bypass in jan 2009 ( loss of 130 pounds and 14 inches) In may 2010 i awoke with what felt like a migraine and it has not went away, it gets worse but never better.
Avatar f tn , currently about 105 pounds (I should be about 130), about 6 years post gastric bypass-I was at 275 pounds- (they removed the Chron's damaged section of intestine during the surgery). I have a good source for high quality protien powder (www.vitalady.com) and one of the good Drs supplied a pancreas gallbladder friendly diet and guidelines.
Avatar f tn tell me I had a metabolic disorder that was throwing my thyroid into hypothyroidism, which threw my liver enzymes up and into non alcoholics fatty liver disease ... Which then resulted into chronic kidney stones and type 2 diabetes. The best way to support your spouse is not to play the blame game or make him feel guilty at all. Support him by cooking him healthy meals and eating them with him. Remove the temptations and avoid things that can spike his sugar levels.
611067 tn?1458595083 Thank you so much. I wish I could use Ibuprofen, Aspirin or other NSAIDS, but since I had gastric bypass surgery a few years ago and also have a large ulcer outside my pouch I cannot use those types of medication. It limits me, but I know I can do this with the help from my friends and my hubby! By the way, I enjoyed chatting with you Friday night! Love ya!
Avatar n tn It has my doctor stumped on how to help me. I had a gastric bypass in 2000 and then discovered I have a severe allergic reaction to everything with b12 in it. I cant even take the gummy vitamins darn it. I get swelling and trouble breathing and the longer I take it, days not weeks or months the worse the symptoms.
Avatar n tn Sounds to me like you had happen what happened to me after my galbladder removal. The doctors fail to tell you that 30% of the people who have their gllbladders removed eventually will have surgically induced Celiac Disease. You need to go on a gluten free-dairy free diet IMMEDIATELY! The gluten and casiene proteins in your food are not being digested by your intestines anymore, thus causing the horrible diarrhea problems.
Avatar n tn For about 3 months now I know how people who have had gastric bypass feel! I can eat less than half of what I used to be able to eat before I feel full. My appetite has been greatly reduced, most days I only eat because I know I have to. I also maintained a steady weight of 135 for a long time (I gained the weight from another medication) and recently lost 10 pounds. I don't exercise more than walking, because I'm too tired for that most of the time.
Avatar f tn Okay, those OTC meds are okay for short term use but don't take them for any length of time. They suppress acid production, and your digestive system must produce that acid in order to digest protein and minerals. So it makes more. And so you take more med. And it produces more acid. And so on. Tums have a form of calcium in them that causes things like kidney stones, so again, don't want to go there to often.
Avatar f tn I had my gall bladder removed because of gall stones. I am Diabetic. I have suffered for the last year, in tears. I dont wanna live like this. i have done MRI, CAT, Untra-sound, Upper gastric....all negative. I have gone from dr. to dr.. most suggested pain management. Like I am a *****. I got soooooo mad at them. I am an Operating Engineer, A tugboat guy, I can take pain. But this has ruined me. I am on my knees in pain and tears. There is a lump in my gut. The doc dismiss it as scar tissue.
Avatar n tn Anyone out there have answers yet? I am a 37 year old female, who has had a gastric bypass (roux en y) stomach stapling, and removal of gallbladder in 2000. I had four years of great health! Then in the fall of 2004, I have acquired the same symptoms you all describe. It came on suddenly and hasn't left yet. This nagging 'gallbladder attack' type pain, which never goes away, and is constant. Right under the ribcage, I just want to cut myself open and grab it out and get rid of it.
