Belly Pain (Definition)

Abdominal pain is pain that you feel anywhere between your chest and groin. This is often referred to as the stomach region or belly. Almost everyone experiences pain in the abdomen at one time or another. Most of the time, it is not caused by a serious medical problem. There are many organs in the abdomen.

3 weeks I've had abdominal pain, nausea & have vomited after meals. I'm not pregnant, had an ultrasound &have small polyps in my gallbladder? Now what?

3 Possibilities: 1-what is presumed to be polyps are actually gallstones. 2-you may have gallbladder disease in the absence of stones. A cck-hida test can check gb function. 3-we are "barking up the wrong tree" & your problems are not gb related. I advise you to see a gb surgeon or gastroenterologist to help sort this out. Good luck! ...Read more
