Upper gastric pain, right greater than left

Upper gastric pain, right greater than left. Under lower ribs. Have IBS. Had colonectomies. Just getting over IBS attack. Ate wrong food last evening (I normally rest from solids a bit before I eat most foods), but I goofed. I even had chicken last night! Today I have pain across the area just under ribs, mainly on right.side. Had colonectomy x2 a few years back for necrosis due to surgeon error a while before that. I am a bit more touchy what with FMS/IBS so just wanted to know about pain that feels more like IBS than anything else I can think of. I had a lot of pain for about three days starting last Thursday (three days ago approximately). I m fairly sure this is IBS due to eating on top of an already sore gut . I also have a diagnosed hiatal hernia . I do very well IF I watch what I eat and try to control stress. Just need a bit of assurance. Thanks.

Hi. Pain in IBS is generally caused due to bloating. The most commonly affected function in these diseases is transportation. In the stomach and small intestine, the symptoms of slowed transportation are nausea, vomiting, abdominal bloating (the sensation of abdominal fullness), and abdominal distention (enlargement). The symptom of rapid transportation usually is diarrhea. In case you are suffering from severe pain in the right hypochondriac region then i would suggest you to consult a surgeon so that gall bladder involvement can be ruled out.
