I am a 28 year old male suffering from severe abdominal pain. I have been to EVERY hospital in the area (good hospitals too) and no one can help. About 2 years ago, I had my gall bladder out, and about six years ago, I had a gastric bypass. From one or both of those surgeries, the doctors said that adhesions had formed. Medicine helps a little, but the symptoms have increased, and the doctors don't want to do more surgery because that can cause more adhesions to form. I am at my wits end! The pain is so severe that my blood pressure shoots up to about 200/92-way too high and I throw up. I can't eat for days, even though I am hungry, and I have gone through just about every gastric test possible. Anyone else have something similar happening? Any answers or suggestions appreciated!!
