Mar 14, 2017 · Relentless bile reflux / pain in Digestive Health

Hi Judy, thank you so much for your reply. I’ve definitely cut out all of those foods – tomatoes were a killer for me when this all started over 2 years ago so that was the first thing to go. Thank goodness you don’t have Barrett’s, I’m so worried that my relentless reflux wil lead to this. I thought about a duodenal ulcer but they had a look with a camera during my recent gastroscopy. Thank you for the link about the pancreas issue. I had a stool test for this to check for undigested fats which can indicate a pancreatic issue and it came back clear. Very frustrating! On paper, I am very healthy but in reality I feel awful!

Thank you for the advice re charcoal. I’m not finding much relief from it at all really which is a shame. I had high hopes!

oh my goodness you are my twin! the doctor has said the exact same to me. All I think now is that I’ll need to be on the floor unable to move until they will actually consider removing it.

Hi there, I have been given a few ultrasounds now and an MRCP to look for gallstones. I was also given a HIDA scan which showed that my gallbladder is a little bit on the higher end of the EF scale but they said that my gallbladder will not be coming out 🙁

Hiya, I read about this a little while ago as some of my symptoms matched up. I cut out fruit for around 3 weeks including anything with fruit extracts but no relief! 🙁

Hi JK, thank you for replying. A gastroscopy goes that bit further than an endoscopy so it also looks in the stomach and duodenum as well as the throat in general. I’m waiting for biopsy results hoping that all this reflux has not led to Barrett’s already – fingers crossed.

Hi there, thank you for replying, I had a fecal elastase which looks for undigested fat in the stool if the pancreas isn’t doing its job and I was told that it all looked normal. I cut out both gluten and dairy for months (gluten for a year!) but no difference there. Also taking probiotics and digestive enzymes. It’s crazy as I feel I’m doing everything right with no relief.

Hi there, thank you so much for replying. The pain is just under my right rib cage and sometimes a little lower just to the right of my belly button. I have seen two GI doctors now (got a second opinion) and both keep saying IBS and bile reflux. Been told there is not much more they can do for me at this stage 🙁
