Had a Lithrotripsy done 3 years back...ever since then, i have had pain in my front left side, usually lower..Different than the pain from my kidney stone pain.
The pain usually lasts 2-4 weeks then goes away for a few months then comes back..
Everytime it comes back the pain gets a little worse.
I had a colonoscopy done almost 2 years ago and nothing was found.
The pain was bad 3 months ago. I went to Dr and all he found was my white blood count is a little low..3.9/4.2 a month later..
Eventually the pain went away and i started eating alot more fiber.
Everythings been good til this past week..It's back and as painful as the last time..
It hurts most of the time but more after i eat or if i havent gone to bathroom in awhile..But i am not constipated..I went today yet i'm in pain..
I'm thinkin diverticulitis, cancer, blockage..dont know..
Any idea what it could be?
