Hi ! I am Dr Shareef, a general surgeon. I understood the difficulty that you have. Let my information help you in finding the solution.
1) I would like to know about your food habits. Do you frequently eat from outside specially fast foods ?
2) Also you have mentioned about adhesions. Does it mean that you had undergone any abdominal surgery previously? Though you had written in the history it is not very clear hence confirming it.
If first one is true, then I would like to advise you to go for liver function test to exclude any chance of Hepatitis.
If the second one is true, then may be you are having a sub acute kind of intestinal obstruction due to some post operative adhesions. If you are passing gases and stool normally, then a period of observation is warranted before deciding on any active surgical intervention for unrelenting and persisting problem.
Also you can try some antacid, and a proton pump inhibitor , with an anti emetic for a short period. An ultrasound of abdomen may be of help in adding to the diagnosis. Your doctor would know about these.
Hope I have answered your queries. If you have any other question, please feel free to ask. Wishing you an early recovery.
