Physical exam: It depends on the site of your pain. You need to visit your general surgeon who will do a physical exam. When you describe your pain, when was the onset? Where exactly is the pain (right upper quadrant, vague, diffuse?), do you have abdominal tenderness? Bowel and bladder symptoms? Nausea? Refer to gastroenterology if pain persists as well.

My dad is having severe abdominal pain since past 3 days ... Ultra sound showed 4mm widening of gall bladder thickness.. Diagnosed with Acalculous Cholecystitis .. Prescribed with antibiotic and analgesic for 5 days.. Will cholecystectomy be necessary ??

My dad is having severe abdominal pain since past 3 days ... Ultra sound showed 4mm widening of gall bladder thickness.. Diagnosed with Acalculous Cholecystitis .. Prescribed with antibiotic and analgesic for 5 days.. Will cholecystectomy be necessary ??

Get a second opinion: Usually people who develop acalculous choelcystitis are very sick and elderly, like ICU patients. Typically they need to have their gallbladder removed right away if they are healthy enough to tolerate it. 4 mm of GB wall thickening is not very significant. If no stones were found and he is having severe pain, I would make sure something else isn't going on. See a different doctor. ...Read more

Hi I've been feeling a lot of pain in my body and I think I'm having constipation and I feel bloated and abdominal pain and rapid heartbeat and shortness of breath and chest tightness and pain and pain and numbness in my left arm and body popping and head

Huhh???: You talk of such vague overall complaints all over your body that it suggests to me that you might be having issues of a psychological rather than a physiological disruption in your health. You may indeed have constipation. That might cause you pain and a feeling of fullness in the left lower quadrant of your abdomen. It would not explain the rest. See your PCP. ...Read more
