I don't see a point too but just curious what you ladies have to say and if your only reply is gonna be how you think im a hypochondriac, you can just not bother replying and saving your time.

I have this pain right where my gallbladder is suppose to be (mine was taken out in 2014). I was pain free up till summer of 2016 after i had iron infusions done.
Ive had xrays, cat scans, ultrasounds, upper/lower GI and some test to make sure nothing came undone or whatever with the gallbladder surgery.
The pain is there and sometimes it is bad where it stops me dead in my tracks and i need to go lay down.

i don't understand why i am having this pain, the test show nothing. The pain is random and i cant even say somethimg like eating bread brings it on or something.

You know your body better than anyone. If something is wrong and you don't feel your Dr is helping you, then yes get a second opinion.

Could it be kidney stones?? Or even a pulled muscle.

Dont think so, my urine is clean. Maybe the scar tissue from the surgery but it is weird it would happen yrs later if so

Phantom gallbladder.


That was a joke. Everyone chill.

I'd keep asking and researching til I found an answer. Maybe go see a chiropractor? Maybe a muscle is out of whack.

Yes go get a second opinion. Iā€™d be worried they left something in there.

I could be scar tissue or adhesions..which I'd think would be seen on a CT...

It's not uncommon for scar tissue or even adhesions to bother a person years after surgery. 

Are you still getting iron infusions? Can they be stopped for a period of time and see if the pain stops? Or maybe stretch out the time in between them? 

Can you notice if the pain comes about after or when you're coming due for an infusion?

Google sphincter or oddi dysfunction.

Can it be stomach bacteria? Or endometriosis? An ovarian cyst or fibroid (would have come up on the cat scan), so I guess not.
Have you tried to google it (it would be a lot of reading, most likely useless).
Can you take all of your test results and ask for a second opinion?

Why are you getting iron infusions?

It wouldn't hurt to try a new doctor for your next physical or specialist appointment.

Do you have anemia? My mom thought she was anemic but has hemochromatosis.
