Just a thought.....my daughter had pain up high also--at her last surgery
she asked the
doctor to check that area--her liver was fused with adhesions to her
ribcage--he removed them all
in a 30 minute procedure--very tedious work. She has not had the pain in
that area since.

Thanks so much for the info. This led me to some research on the sphincter
of oddi. My pain is high in the middle between the rib cage, it can spread
out under my ribs, and sometimes my back kills me going straight thru to the
back,,gets worse with eating and sometimes activity. I am on some anti
spasm meds that seem to be helping. They think it is bowel spasms, very
well could be my surgery with Dr. Reich and Dr. Kruschinski went very well,
no adhesions up high, mine were midline to pelvis, small and large bowel
involved. I spoke with Dr. Reich, his quess is intestinal spasms or
gallbladder. I had a Hida scan and ultra sound a year ago...............so
I will give this more time. But I understand that you can have dysfunction
of the sphincter and still have your gallbladder.
Thank you, I learned alot from you and am still researching.
I sure hope they can find the problem and relieve you of your pain.
Its nice to hear of your last successful surgery with Dr. Reich, I know he
sure helped me with my other half.
Stay strong and when you are doing well enough, drop a line please.
