Hi everyone, I just found this board and thought someone might have some answers.
I am 2 1/2 yrs post op lap gastric rny bypass. I have had occassional severe stomach pains that I can't pinpoint any triggering incident or food. My dr has done EGD, gallbladder ultrasound, Hiata (sp?) scan to test gallbladder function and everything has come back normal. The pain is in the pit of my stomach and around to my back. I double over sometimes. It usually only lasts for a few hours, I have thought it may have been gas because I would go to the bathroom I would feel SOME relief.( I know..too much info-TMI). However, this time I went to lunch at Burger King w/ my father in law on Wednesday and had 1/2 hamburger & maybe 5 onion rings (i know... I usually don't eat fried foods) and had a diet coke over the next couple of hours I developed the same pain, but it became more & more severe. I called my dr, he's out til next week, got a "jerk" of a dr that told me to take more pepcid. I went to the drug store and asked the pharmacist. He told me Gaviscon liquid is fast acting, I took that and ALL of the following, Pepcid complete, GasX,Dulcolax (3),Milk of Magnesia, Nexium, then @ 2:00am after pacing the floors and not sleeping because of severe pain, I sent my hubby to Walmart for an enema & suppositories which did not help, then @ 6:00am he went and got Magnesium Citrate (the kind I had to clean myself out before surgery)I couldn't drink but about 2 oz because it burned when it hit my stomach. Anyway, long story short, by the time I took all of that I thought I would explode!!!! But guess what, it only helped a little. I had to get one of the drs I work w/ to give me a prescription for phenergan which did help me sleep the next night but didn't help the pain. I am now feeling about 80% better but had to eat a scrambled egg & piece of cinnamon toast it seemed to help but has started hurting more today. Anyone have any suggestions about what this could possibly be????
