Im in pain, left side of my abdomen could this be my diverticulitis acting up again and what shhould I do?

Diverticulitis: If you have had diverticulitis before, then it is possible, you need to contact your doctor for antibiotics, and to be evaluated. Go on a liquid diet to minimize bowel irritation and do not use an enema if you have constipation, use miralax (polyethylene glycol). You definitely need to be checked to see if it is something else, like a kidney stone, or females can have ovarian cysts or pelvic inflammatory disease too. ...Read more

Diagnosed recently cll stage 0 but just started having abdominal pain left side, feeling bloated. Wbc 13, 000. Will i need chemo if nodes in abdomen?

Here's an idea: Today, it's customary to subtype cll by its genetic markers. It's actually about a dozen different diseases, some aggressive, some not. I'll bet that your hematologist has already done this, and your tumor mutation / translocation profile will be more helpful as a guide to treatment. Whether your spleen is big or not is much less of a factor than other parameters. ...Read more

Taking simethicone 1/2 hour after meals helps to prevent the gas build up. Gas, in some people, can build up even without eating, . ...Read more

Maybe: Most would recommend that you use backup contraception for at least a month while your body adjusts to the pill. It works by preventing ovulation, and if you ovulated before you started the pill, the egg could be in position for fertilization by your unprotected encounter. Your discomfort could also be something else. ...Read more

Occasional dull pain on right side of abdomen. More likely GERD or liver pain?

The liver is in the right upper abdomen, under the rib cage, but it is impossible to know if this is the cause. Could be something as simple as gas or a muscle spasm/strain. If you're worried, see your primary care provider for a more complete evaluation. Hope this helps! ...Read more

The : The ct will be able to detect cancer if present. To answer your question, with any enlargement of organs there is a chance of cancer. However, there are also many other causes as well (fatty liver, liver cirrhosis, hepatitis, sickle cell disease etc.) hopefully your doctors will be able to figure out exactly the cause of your hepatosplenomegaly (enlarged liver and spleen) and come up with a treatment plan. Best of luck. ...Read more
