6 mths post hysterectomy. Lower abdomenal and mid back pain on right side. Pain is horrible. I went to ER and after CT and blood work I have NO answes?

Integrative pain Rx: The ERs job is to rule out emergency. They did. But you still have pain. 1st thing is to go back to your original surgeon, or another surgeon who is recommended, to re-eval and review the scan. They might want another scan. If everything turns up negative, don't despair. It's good not to have a "surgical" problem. There are more subtle approaches to use. Let me know if you're stuck ...Read more

Back pain : The pain that you describe is typical of an inflamed rib head as it inserts into the spine. Anti-inflammatory medications, stretching and massage can help. Apply ice at night and moist warm heat in the morning. Chiropractors are helpful with this problem. Injection of the rib head with a cortisone shot is another treatment option.

I have been getting mid back pain after eating and sometimes on my right side on the side. Is this life threatening? Gb removed 6 MS ago. Scared.

Don't be afraid.: Pain after meals can be frightening, but having your gall bladder removed eliminates that as a cause of your pain. I would recommend seeing a gastroenterologist for an upper endoscopy and evaluation for reflux/ulcer disease. In the mean time you should take a daily over the counter acid reducer such as Pepcid, Nexium (esomeprazole) or Prilosec. ...Read more

Don't self medicate: Taking the wrong antibiotic, or for shorter than a full course, can prove to be ineffective. And if medication is old it may have lost potency. If physician said you are OK, but you don't feel right, call him/her again, or seek a second opinion. Taking wrong Meds is at best ineffective, at worst dangerous. And throw out any Meds over a year old. ...Read more
