What Causes Sharp Pain In The Navel?

default
Posted on Wed, 25 Oct 2017
Question: I've had sharp pains mostly on the right side of my Navel, and the nerve endings seem to be right on the surface, I don't even wan my clothes to touch my skin. I've had a hernia removed from my right side years ago at the exact stop the swelling started this time, I've also had two stomach surgeries a few years ago. I've had 2 ct since Feb and it just shows small gallstones. I've gone to 4 Drs and got 4 different options. I feel that I'm being passed around cause know one knows what's wrong. I can't wear any of my clothes, can't ride in car very far or walk very far as these cause more pain. Now the surgeon is sending me to a pain specialist.. I'v lost 15 lbs and an so tired. I'm a 69 yr old woman and I'm in good health. I Just want my life back and not have to depend on pain meds to jst get through the day.
