Hi Everyone :)
When I was four years old I had a fundoplication because of severe acid reflux. I had acid reflux because I was born without a sphincter.
Im turning 14 this year.
About 5 months ago I had my regular endoscopy and was told by my surgeon that my esophogus is inflamed, really scarred and covered and mucus. He said its highly likely I will need another fundoplication.
My reflux has been super bad these past few months. Lots of nausea and I can feel all the mucus.
In the past week or so I have had a sore upper abdomen. It sore around between the area at the top of my ribs, and also a little to the right. Its not constantly sore, I can just feel it sometimes. Today I could feel it aching into my back. The mucus at the back of my throat has also been pretty bad and whenever I wake up in the morning my chest is so sore that it really hurts to breathe. In the painful area, it is quite tender to touch and very painful when I do push in on it. It feels very presured in there.
I also have swollen glands in my neck. Theyre painless so im not sure why their there?
I take omeoprazole and gaviscon daily, but they dont help.
These symptoms are unusual for me and they just dont seem right.
Any Ideas what they could be?
Im actually quite concerned about them.
Im only 14!!!
HELP!! its really painfull
