Abdominal pain under the last right rib of your rib cage can be eased with soluble migraine tablets (paracetamol) and a codeine tablet, please watch dosage. I am taking this with a codeine tablet prsently for the pain (and watching dosage!).
symptoms: stabbing/dull ache intermittent now constant. Caused distended stomach/peritonitis symptoms pain moderate to severe. right side flank pain and back pain on occasion(too many pain killers?).. during course of 4-5 yrs nausea, fatigue, loss of appettite,metal taste in mouth for a time, peritonitis rigid abdomen for 6-8 months, affected breathing and walking (diaphragm?).. stomach now feels swollen mainly, worsened by eating fatty and sugary foods.. acid /bile? feels like burning colon? when released after eating food.. and pain also there 2 hours later but not necessarily the cause (pain always over belly and stinging pains now over belly button.., righ flank pain)..
I am thinkingit could be : Colon/gallbladder bilary tree/kidney/ducts/duodenum/pancreas/appendix/liver/kidney/inflammation of abdomen..? Distended stomach due to leakage or ascites ??Big guess though!
Have had : blood/urine/stool tests - clear
ultrasound abdomen / vaginal ultrasound -ovaries clear
Endoscopy/colonoscopy clear(tube up bottom wasn't successful).
Bladder shown to have quite a bit of urine in it after emptying (after internal ultrasound of ovaries), i thought it was empty.. so if any of you have seen a urologist can you let me know please!
Am due for laparoscopy next month, will let you know if it shows anything..
If any of you had a liver specialist/pancreas specialist in relation to last rib right side abdo pain, can you also let me know please.. !
hope this helps.. it is very distressing condition 4me as it affects ability to eat food, and basically do anything.. :)
