Hello all. This has been a tough 6 months with severe heartburn and chest pains. I've had about 4 episodes of vomiting and diarrhea this season along with food poisoning.
About 5 weeks ago I developed severe upper abdominal pain. It stated after I ate breakfast and the pain was so bad that I was on the floor screaming in pain. After 9 hours of pain it went away. I was going to call the ambulance but then my daughter would have no one at home when she got back from school. My husband had no holidays left. I've had this pain now for 5 weeks. First it bought it was after I ate but nope, sometimes the pain comes at 3am at night.
I went to my appt today and they've said they will do an ultrasound in 4 weeks but the consultant said most of the times they do not find anything.
Could this be side effect from prograf? Also the heartburn and indigestion issues, can they all be because of prograf? I've been on another transplant forum and a lot of people have said they've had GERD becauze of prograf. I've read that the prograf gives abdominal pain but not sure if it is upper abdominal pain or lower!
Any help? Seriously this pain is more hard to take than the surgery pain.
