Posted on Mon, 20 Nov 2017
Question: I have up-coming appointment with a surgeon because my doctor is wanting his thoughts. But that leaves me in the dark until when ever they get back with me. For over a week I have been having pain (7-8) in my abdomen. It hurts across and around the right rib cage, but the pain goes through to my back. No fever but feeling sick, blood work came back normal both times, But the CT shows 3 bands around the tip of my pancreas. I have been on meds for pain and a clear liquid diet for 4 days, stop victoza, It has helped with the pain but not ended the pain. other info: type 2, my color is good. What is a possibly going on? What do you recommend me asking the doctor?

Brief Answer:
Could be due to muscle spasm.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for asking on HealthcareMagic.

I have gone carefully through your query and understand your concerns. The ailment is unclear from the mentioned details. Could you please upload the reports? It will help me to guide you through. The pain could be due to muscle spasm but could be complicated by electrolyte imbalance. Hot compress can help. I would insist you to take juicy fruits like citrus fruits. They contain plenty of potassium which should help in proper functioning of the muscles and in reduction of the cramps. You also need to increase total fluid (water) intake and to take plenty of ORS (oral rehydration solution) to replenish the lost fluids and salts.

Ask your doctor directly about what he feels about the underlying issue, the possible mechanism by which it is happening and what could be done about it.

Let me know if I could help further.
