I had an operation to remove a neuroma on the right side of my spine, in 1997, it was only partly removed. I have a permanent pain in the lower side of my right side, I always assumed it was a side effect from the operation, it has been getting worse recently. I find in the last couple of years, after about 4 or five pints, I get a bloated stomach, pain passing urine, sometimes for a couple of days, it never really seems to recover fully, I was off the beer for a couple of years because of this reaction. I returned to the beer slowly, it seemed ok, for a while then it started again? I have had urine tests for other unrelated medical conditions, recently, nothing wrong seems to show up? The pain is worst when I am lying on my right side, I have had acupuncture for this a couple of times which seems to relieve the pain temporary. Could it be some sort of neuroma that is affecting the right kidney?
