Very severe upper abdominal pain. Vomiting bile and dry heaves. Have atrial tumor. Related?
Early Tuesday morning I awoke with very severe upper abdominal pain that persisted for approx.1 1/2 hrs., accompanied by vomiting bile and dry heaves (from pain) I have a hx of CAD and MI. I also have a large atrial tumor (both R&L atrium and atrial septal infiltration the tumor has grown upward onto the Superior Vena Cava and is mildly compressing it at this point. I have also had my gallbladder removed but was told I had very narrowed biliary tree. I have had pancreatitis from stones in the bile duct which blocked the pancreatic duct. What would most likely have caused this episode.
From the symptoms and the various medical problems you are having it appears most likely due to some hepato billiary pancreatic problem giving rise to severe pain and bilious vomiting .
Please get a check up with your doctor and take treatment .
