  • I have taking my son to 23 DOCTORS FOR SEVERE STOMACH PAIN THEY SAID GALLBLADDER TOOK IT OUT PROBLEMS ARE EVEN WORSE I REALLY NEED HELP HE HAS BEEN TO SO MANY DOCTORS NOW HE SAID HE WILL LAY IN BED AND DIE HE IS DONEMy daughter (25) has been going through the same thing for 3 years. She has had multiple test, scans, labs, xrays you name it. Has seen multiple doctors. She was told IBS (cop out). This weekend she was getting excruciating pain on her right side, normally on her left. She stopped at an ER on the way home from a vacation. Again scans, labs and so on. They thought it was her appendix and admitted her. They decided to take it out even though all her tests were negative. The surgeon went in and did an exploratory laparoscopy. He said her appendix was a little big but to his surprise he found a urichal cyst and her umbilical was twisted. He cut out the twist and the cyst and removed her appendix. He said everything else looked great and this is probably the reason she has had so much pain for so long. It was pulling on her left side where she always had pain and when she pushed on her belly button she would get a strange pain and sensation. She had tears of joy at this discovery. Nothing ever showed up in any of her tests. She had CTs, Ultrasounds, Colonoscopies, labs, capsule CT ect. NOTHING. It took exploratory surgery to figure it out. Thank God for her appendix acting up. It might be something to look into you never know we didn't. Good Luck
