Abdominal Issues
LilOrchid posted:
For the past few weeks I've been suffering from pressure and fullness in my abdominal area. With it comes constant gas (by way of belching.) It always seems to get worst after I have a bowel movement.

Also, my back has began to ache. It first started in only my lower back, but now it's also traveled to my upper back, mainly on my right side.

I had my gallbladder removed almost four years ago, so I know that cannot be the case.

If anyone has any ideas on what this could be, I would really appreciate knowing.

Thank you for your time.

Good morning, I just passed by & noticed your question. Now, I am definately, NOT A DOCTOR! But, I have had quite a few, abdominal surgeries. Are you having any problems, with your B.M's? Trouble eating? I have had several Bowel Obstructions, but with these, I could not eat nor have a B.M. I also have a Hiatle Hernia. It seems to give me similar problems. I think the best thing you could do, is to see a Gastrenterologist. That way, when you get an answer, hopefully, it can be corrected A.S.A.P.!! Good luck to you, periwinkle
