ABOUT THIS CASE FILE
i had surgery 4 years ago on my gallbladder since than i haven't been feeling the same. Doctor told me that i needed to recover from the surgery for 3 months after gallbladder put on low fat diet and surgeon refer me to a gastroenterology which i did. the GI doctor did a ERCP on me which 3 hours after i was rushed to the hospital with pancreatitis. for a year i suffer of pancreatitis was in and out of the hospital almost every month. GI doctor decided to do an endoscopy and colonoscopy also a endoscopy study with it showed Crohns i was put on a medication for 6 months and steroids which made me bloated still my symptoms were getting better. i decided to go for a second opinion which doctor put me on Humira also did an endoscopy study which showed crohns, but even than no relief still pain no sleeping and bloating. After many office visit to this Gi doctor he refers me to someone else told me that "he couldn't help me". went to see my 3 GI doctor which took me out of medication HUmira and told me that this pain was all in my head and that it was just constipation,still was going in the hospital almost every month with pain in right upper abdominal. started thinking maybe just me, but my pain was real every time i was in pain i turned pale and yellowish i got depress because i couldn't find a doctor that believe that i had the pain and that could help me get better. Finally decided to go see another GI doctor which he listed to me and said that he wanted to do more studies and that he will help me. Which he did he did another endoscopy and discovered that i have a hiatal hernia and most of the pain was coming from there. One day just decided to do more search on the internet and all my symptoms pointed to Endometriosis called my OBGYN and she decided to do a exploratory laparoscopy which she found endometriosis she put me on continues birth control which didn't help my symptoms at all she gave me refer to another doctor that could help me. finally went to see this doctor which is another OBGYN as soon as he saw me he said to me this is not endometriosis this has to be something else going on. He decided to give me medication for Endometriosis which is LUPRON injection you get the injection once a month for 4 months which didnt help at all so the gyn refer me to an urologist because my urine always had protein in elevated leukocytes. the urologist started talking about having interstitial cystitis that we should do a procedure to see what is really going on.
