Hard to say

Endoscopy

Dr. Alan J. Levine answered:

What can I do for this pain under my rib cage on my left side.. I read that this is due to inflammation of the spleen? Possible I have mono?

See your physician

Pain
While mono can be one cause of splenic enlargement, it needs to be determined whether your spleen is enlarged, or if your pain is due to another cause. You should be evaluated by your physician to determine the cause of your pain.

Would simple abdominal xray (2 positions) show inflammation in large bowel? Would it show bowel obstruction? I've got a bloated feeling left side into back, and have had diarrhea x8 days. Giardia? 25y

It would show obstruction but not necessarily inflammation. You need a CT scan or MRI to obtain more precise data.
