Melinda: My GI explained the Rt upper pain, underneath the rib cage as where there is a fold in the GI tract. That spot as well as Rt side around the belly button and rt lower side are all classic places for pain here. Due to certain bends in the gi tract sores are more likely to develop in those spots. Are you following any type of diet? I see a lot of people on various diets and therapies to make their tummies feel better depending on their own situations as well as with medication support. I actually feel better on an almost a soft to liquid diet. Feel better with yogurt, bananas, pudding and soft fruits. Salads, roast beef, bagels, too much food sends me over the edge.
Keep reading, there are lots of great people on these message boards who have a weath of knowledge and experience. Hope you find something that works. barb
