I have posted a couple of times and would like to thank those who have responded it has been great to talk to others who are in the same boat.
I have a couple of questions:
Does anybody me else get the dull ache/sharp twinges on bottom of left rib which if I turn over in bed too quick the pain shoots through my side. Is this the hernia?
Nights are the worst as have to sleep propped up on pillows and on my back though have slid off them a couple of times the past few nights and have slept on my side but does this aggravate the hernia?
I have been experiencing a dull ache in middle of stomach and sometimes feel that this area is bloated and like a tight band. I am not sure whether this is due to posture when sitting at my work desk as it gets worse as day goes on.
I am on Lanzoprazole 30mg at moment but have been told to reduce to 15mg if feeling better. The heartburn has subsided considerably but I am still burping especially in morning - again is this normal?
Since the endoscopy everything seemed to flare up worse. It’s now been 2 weeks and at last things are starting to quite down but the left rib pain is a bit concerning any help?
My husband says I worry about everything which I must admit I do but it’s hard when your GP just gives you tablets and cannot answer your questions and says it’s my anxiety and low mood that are the problem and not the hernia and wants to put me on happy pills I then get very frustrated.
