I just had a colonostopy and
a egd done. Had a polyp removed, two more there but just starting. Dr. found a tiny area in my stomach that he said was so small he did not know if it was inflammation or a ulcer starting. I really expected him him to find gerd or a hiatal hernia.
I have ibs for years and years, control the d and c with metamucil, but have frequent bm's often. I get pain under my rib cage both sides, get sharp shooting pains that run along my rib cage or from the bottom rbs up to the low part of the breast. Stomach pain, feels like a gnawing pain.
I do have fbromyalgia and the gastro think that this is all ibs and fm related. I am relieved to find out i don't have anything serious but it seem my ibs symtons changed. This rib thing comes and goes. My stomach will not bother me for weeks and than I can have 4-6 days of this gnawing pain.
i get so bloated and burp like a drunken sailor.
Everything I read about ibs says pain below the navel relieved by a bm. Sometimes I get the terrible bloating aftr a bowel movement.
Thnks for any reponse. Linda
