Having incessant pain in lower abdomen. Looking for a good gastroenterologist in Hyderabad. Help?

Hi, I am looking for a good gastroenterologist in Hyderabad for my wife who is having incessant pain in the lower abdomen and after consulting and changing few doctors apart from doing multiple tests I am still unable to decide what to do next. Some say there is lot of water in the small intestine, some say there is intestinal obstruction and some say that the small intestine is entangled. She has lost lot of weight in the due course, has become weak and is not physically and mental doing good. Looking for some good suggestion to help my wife get rid of this problem. Appreciate a quick response. Thank you.

Hi ! Your wife is possibly having some kind of chronic problem of the intestines. Does she have any low grade fever specially in the evenings ? Does any of her family members or with whom they are friendly recieved any long term treatment of a few months for chronic cough or any other chronic problem ? I would suggest you to talk to your family physician to investigate her in the lines of tuberculosis of intestines which is a common extra pulmonary tubercular infection in India. even though all the investigations may look to be normal, intestinal tuberculosis may exist, and only a therapeutic trial may prove it to be the case. However, you must take the advice of your family physician before deciding on any such treatment. A barium meal follow through or a CECT abdomen may also be done to know the status of intestines and other organs of the abdomen. Your family physician can suggest you name of a gastroenterologist at Hyderabad. Hope this will help you out in dealing with your wife's condition. Good luck.
