CHRONIC Upper midline abdominal pain
Hello, my name is Colleen and I'm 45 years old. 2 years ago I was admitted to the hospital with the most severe abdominal pain I had ever experienced. 5 weeks later and several trips to the hospital I had laproscopic surgery that uncovered an internal hernia that ruptured and had attached to the wall of my abdomen. This was repaired and I was sent home. 5 months later I had a partial hysterectomy and right ovary removed. Also removed appendix. When I went back to work I found I could not sit at my desk for long periods of time. 5 months later another laprascopic surgery that uncovered nothing. 4 months later had gallbladder removed, still had the same pain. I have been dealing with this pain for 15 months with many different doctors telling my they don't know what is wrong with me. I have had so many tests that I've lost count. I do not have pancrentitis, nor do I have an ulcer or hernia. I started taking Lyrica 3 months ago at 75 mg 2x/day, I am now up to 200 mg 3x/day, still have pain. I don't know what to do anymore. I've tried accupuncture, but it only works for about 1 day. I had Thermology (infrared imaging) that showed a possible dysfunction of my transverse colon which my GI doctor doesn't seem to be concerned with. I'm concerned. What do I do now? My family doctor will not prescribe any more perocet, I was told to go to the ER. Been there several times too and have been told there is nothing we can do for you here. Any insight is appreciated. Thanks.
