I have been to the doctor, who has order blood tests and and ultrasound . I have the dull throbbing pulsating uncomfortable feelings under my rib cage. I have been told to cut down on fatty foods. I must admit last week I had japanese broth for lunch and it helped. Otherwise my bowel movements and other functions seem normal. I have slight gases in stomach which make me burp.
