Recurring stomach pain after uterus removal. Using seretide for treating asthma. Can it cause gastritis?

Hello Dr. Stephen, My mother gets recurring stomach pain. Following are the facts that may help you in understanding her situation; 1- She went through a uterus removal surgery in August 2010. Her surgery took around 4hrs (which is very unusual for the type-and the doctors didn t give us the reason as to why it happened. Since then she gets recurring abominal pain. 2-I am writing to you from Pakistan and doctors here have been doing a lot of medicinal experimentation on her. I just got a chance to read about her symptoms and they match with Gastritis and post surgery adhesion . 3- She moreover, has been using seretide ( inhaler ) to treat her asthama for around 10 years now. I checked and there are cases reported for seretide causing Gastritis. 4- Her ultrasound has been done here and is clear in all regards. Please advice. Best regards, Iram

Hi, recurring abdominal pain after surgery is common but if it persist and increase then needs to evaluated. Some abscessus or collection can always be cause of pain. Ulstrasound is the best way to see it but also Ct scan of pelvis should be performed. These things I ve mentioned and postoperative adhesions are typical complications which are not caused by surgeon or his experiments. It is always possible and dont blame them for it. Gastritis can be side effect of seretides, but I would think first of most common causes such as stress, spicy food, alcohol or nonsteroida analgetics. GAstroscopy would reveal the real cause and also can be therapeutic.
Wish you good health.
