Your problem needs to be detailed examined. We cannot resolve with this history. Kindly get ultrasound abdomen. If you have more pain, then get enteroscopy done to see if there is any kind of problem with your bowels.

Maybe, enteral adhesions or jejunitis can also cause this. If there is any problem with pancreas or any other organ in USG or MRI, it will be detected.

First and foremost, a general examination of the abdomen by palpation can also give us a lot of clues. So kindly get all the above things done.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
