I had a hysterectomy 5 years ago for endometriosis, have side effects please advise?

I had a hysterectomy 5 years ago for endometriosis ages 27. After the surgery I suffered severe infection which resulted in two further surgeries one to remove scar tissue around my bowels and lower intestine and one to remove my remaining Fallopian tube I also was admitted to hospital and put on IV antibiotics for 7 day periods over a period of 13 months I was admitted 8 times doctors could never control the infection. I recovered for a period of around 6 months then started getting strange stinging electrical shock symptoms around my genital area and my back and head after many test I was diagnosed as delusional and put on medication which after being adjusted many times eased my anxiety but never my symptoms they continued to worsen I now constantly feel like something that feels slimy like small worms are crawling from my genitals or scalp I get a bad burning pain in my right shoulder blade that often extends down my back into my lower back/ buttock I often feel something is crawling or moving up from my bottom round either side of my waists to my belly button. Area this can sometimes produce also a strange smell which other people have smelt. This causes me to feel exhausted extremely bloated to the point I feel my stomach may pop and it becomes very distended I often feel sick and have random hot flushes, concussion a fuzzy feeling and low mood last time I was in the bath the sensation from my genitals was bad so I took a photo and I would like you to look and see if you see the dark worm type looking problem I see and feel

I’ve had pain and discomfort in my lower abdomen on and off for over 20 years?

I’ve had pain and discomfort in my lower abdomen on and off for over 20 years after straining on the toilet and was diagnosed with IBS. Recently the discomfort has come back and won’t go. Yesterday I had a CT scan and was told there was nothing visible, and that my bloods were all fine but that I’m quite dehydrated. I’m going to ask for a 2nd opinion as I know there’s something amiss…. and my feeling is I may have either and abdominal tear or maybe a Spigelian hernia (I have had 2 bouts of extreme pain and vomiting in the past 10 years). That said in the meantime, is there anything I can buy over the counter to ease the pain and discomfort?… Maybe Laxido or Fybogel?? Many thanks.

I have severe acid reflux?

I have severe acid reflux and after years of conventional treatment that has failed. I have been booked in for a nerve block. I wanted to know what is the difference between a cephalic and splanchnic nerve block? Is there a difference? which is safer? I read in a journal that cephalic nerve block can lead to diarrhoea and there have been few reported deaths. It seems to be one of the risks involved?

Is this the case? Does the same risk exist with the splanchnic nerve block?

Thanks

I have irritable bowel, how often should a colonoscopy be performed?

I am female and 65. I have irritable bowel. I have hemorrhoids that sometimes bleed – maybe every 7 to 8 weeks or so. Sometimes I can go for months with no bleeding. If I get constipated, I may have the bleeding. I have had in my life 3 colonoscopies all clean -no polyps. The last one was in 2011. So, when you have a patient that does bleed every so often, how often should a colonoscopy be performed? No family history.

I have been experiencing nausea and vomiting almost daily?

For over 2 years I have been experiencing nausea and vomiting almost daily, it is worst on the morning and is not related to the type of food I eat although it is made worse by eating.

I have had endoscopy which is clear no ulcers no reflux.
Helicobacter negative.

And the gastroenterologist are leaving me with no answers.

I am taking 40mg omeprazol twice a day. To no effect although causing side effect of diarrhoea.

What else,could possibly be causing my symptoms and what should I do now?

I have been having bad stomach cramps for about two months now?

I have been having bad stomach cramps for about two months now, with an overall lack of energy and constipation. I’ve also noticed lately I’ve had a lack of phlegm production as well. I’ve always produced a lot of phlegm my whole life, constantly clearing my throat. I assumed this was the result of an Ulcer. So I gave up drinking and Coffee, as well as spicy foods and foods high in fat. I’ve been eating lots of fruit (no citrus), Yogurt, and generally bland foods. I have been under a lot of stress the last few years and have been dealing with a Heart Burn since then. But OTC Medications have alleviated that. I’ve been healthy my whole life, no problems at all.

For almost one month now I have been dealing with stomach problems?

For almost one month now I have been dealing with stomach problems. It started when I was away on holidays. My travelling companion fell ill for 2 days with a stomach bug (presumably) and felt okay. She got sick once, rested in bed and was okay soon after. I fell ill approximately 2 days after her. Symptoms of nausea, fever, light-headedness – however I did not get sick. The symptoms improved over time, but I still find that I have not completely recovered. I don’t have much of an appetite, I feel a type of bulge or tightness is my throat/oesophagus and I am unable to eat large amounts. I would describe my symptoms similar to acid reflux, but I don’t feel that burning sensation.

I went to see a doctor one week after being ill while I was still on my holidays. He diagnosed it as a stomach virus. I have a family history of gallstones and h pylori infections. I have been putting off going for a second appointment as I feel my symptoms aren’t that severe, plus I feel as though I am anxious about the whole situation and that could be making my symptoms worse than they actually are. Could you recommend what course of action I should take? Is a second appointment justified, or is it likely a lingering stomach virus? Is there a need for urgency?

Thanking you in advance,

(…)
