Customer Question

I had gall stone related pancreatitis three years ago. Four months ago, I started getting pain under my ribs on both sides intermittently. It is sometimes affected by eating but not always. I have a lot of wind(both ends) and sometimes I have to sit up at night to burp. I have had urine and a blood test (both are fine)

HelloWith this history, you could have recurrent stones.Blood tests are useless, you would need a scan called an MRCP to see if this is the case.The other choice is a scope to the stomach with a dye test called an ERCP, which is more invasive.In addition, colon problems and stomach problems can cause pain like this.I suggest your GP refer you to a gastroenterologist at this point. OK, so that is an initial answer….Please use reply to expert if you have further questions. When you are ready, please click a positive rating [hopefully excellent].
