All scans have come back clear!?

Critten profile image

I'm currently having upper right quadrant pain when I bend over and slouch. I've had a ct scan with contrast. Had an ultra sound and Mri. Blood tests fine too.

Also colonoscopy and laroscopy. I'm currently seeing a gastroenterologist privately as I'm not getting to the bottom of the pain. Dr has referred me to have another endoscopy with ultra sound attached. I have drank alchahol for about 20 years and more than the recommended amount. I have informed the Dr about this. He assured me there's nothing sinister going on in my body! My question is do I need a fibroscan or mre or mrcp scan?

Really appreciate any advice given?

Thank you.

I have had a pain similar to that you describe. Under my right rib. Notice it when I’m driving or slouched over. 14 years,scans ,blood. Nothing. I know it’s my gallbladder. I have raised amylase levels which they can’t find out what’s causing it. Surely there is a link!!

Hi Dean, I noticed it too when I'm driving. I thought it was also afyer eating but then realised I'm just sat in the slouched position when eating. Dr said he was going to see if my gall bladder isn't working correctly hence the laroscopy with the ultra sound. Have you had scans ect?

How did you find out it was distended? Why haven't nt taken it out? The pain I get is like a pin prick and sometime a sharp splitting pain. Occasionally I get it under the right ribs too?

Because I have portal hypertension l. It’s too risky.

Ah ok, my symptoms have been getting worse.. Feel like I need more investigation.Does anything help the pain or anything triggers it?

Anxiety triggers it. I don’t take painkillers because of the liver....

Have you been told not to take pain killers. I didn't realise you had a problem with your liver? Or is that portal hypertension?

Hi you say your amylase levels are high how many times have they been high

If your amylase and lipase have been high the pain your getting is from your pancreas

deanw41 in reply to Luca17

There always high,I have hyperamylaseia. My liptase is normal. My consultant did a break down of the amylase isoenzyme and it’s mainly salavitry, I know it’s my gallbladder bladder
