I have a new symptom that I've never had before. Pain in the ULQ that radiates to the LLQ and sometimes even to the LRQ. There is no pain if I don't move, only if I move or lay on it. Sometimes there's even pain if I breath. It came on slowly over the weekend and by yesterday morning the pain woke me up.
I had blood tests and they all came back in the normal range. We thought maybe pancreatitis because I just started the 6MP again, but levels are normal. X-rays don't show an obvious blockage (but it doesn't feel like a blockage anyway).
My WBC count is normal, doctor says it shouldn't be an abscess, but I had a chronic abscess before the surgery and my levels never showed it. Am thinking maybe an abscess from the wound that took 2 months to heal?
Never had adhesion pain before, does this sound like that could be it?
I know this disease has morphed over the years for me, my symptoms kept changing so not sure what to think.
It's extremely painful to palpation and movement, pain meds take the edge off but hasn't made it go away. Doctor didn't seem worried, says if it continues to hurt maybe I should go to Urgent care and they'll do a CT scan. I'm worried as I'm only a few months post surgery. It really doesn't feel like it's digestion related, but who knows.
I was just thinking how lucky I am to have a doctor that got me into his office right away, but then I also think he should know me well enough by now to know that this needs further investigation, I never call him for small issues. This DD is sooooo frustrating sometimes.

Six resection surgeries, permanent ostomy, adverse reactions to Remicade, finally off of Prednisone, back on 6MP for maintenance, hoping for a long remission from this last surgery.
