Detailed Answer:
Hi and thank you for asking!
I read carefully all her concerns and I can say as follows:
1.She has right side pain after meal and bad breath. On the other hand she has done ultrasound, x-ray, gastroscopy and everything Is normal.
To my opinion her symptoms may be related with:
- gallbladder/pancreatic issues
- large bowel issue( I would like to know if she has bowel movement changes)
2. This is why at her situation I would recommend to continue investigation for the diagnosis with :
- MRCP/Ct scan to better evaluate gallbladder issues and pancreas too.
- colonoscopy to evaluate large bowel.
3.Meantime I would suggest to use antispasmodic drugs mebevedrine or butyscopolamine. Continue to use PPI's like Nexium.
Please discuss with your physician about the exams that I have recommended .
Wish you all the best!
