i am a woman of 44yrs and 7years ago i had a gastric bypass,i went from a size 28 to 14.half my body weight of which i wanted to be. but the last year i have lost more weight i am now a size 8.the last 5weeks i have been in agony with stomac pain continuasly on my right side,under rib cage from liver area up to my right breast.effecting my right shoulder blade and back,several times i have been in hospital had xray ct scan ultra scan blood tests nothing showing only water on right lung.my liver is enlarged my pancrease is also inflammed.i have also had camera down my top stomac hospital not relizing no entry into bottom stomac.i have had camera up rectum as well which is not able to get into bottom stomac.it hurts when i cough sneeze and deep breath.and moving around hurts me. i am sick everytime i eat.please please if anyone has experianced any of the above and found out what it could be please reply. my life just seems like a constant pain thank you so much. before my bypass i also had stomc ulcers.thank you a lady desprate for answers thank you
thank you for replying to me, i weigh 50kgs and i am 5ft 6inch height, hospital just said water on right lung,but i have pain in stomac enlarged liver,inflammed pancreas, pain in right shoulder blade,previous to the gastric bypass i had stomac ulcers.i am due to see a doctor on tuesday.who says the only way he can tell me whats happening inside my stomac is to open my stomac a have a look.i am really concerned because of the stomac bypass i have 2 stomacs one being large and and its all sealed up so a camera down my throat and a camera into my rectum could not enter into this stomac.it could only reach into the top stomac.i was thinking if my ulcers were perfrated or bleeding this would not be seen because nothing can get into this stomac to see it.do you know what symptoms i would have if it was my ulcers,or could this be symptoms of water on my lung,thank you so much
i am also worried because when i had the stomac bypass, my stomac was divided into two and stapple,checks were done to make sure that nothing could leak into the bottom stomac,so now if i have to have surgery to look in bottom stomac is this going to be safe,my stomac ulcers are in the bottom stomac. because it has been sealed up for 7years.i really do not know what is causing all this pain.but i have listed all my symptoms.and praying that someone may be able to tell me what the cause of this pain is.thank you Dr Nikola for replying.i look forward to any reply you might have thank you.
"Water in lung" is not a precise medical diagnosis. It could mean liquid present in the plural space (pleurisy) or liquid present in the lung's alveoli (lung edema). Pleurisy is usually due to lung infection. Lung edema is usually bilateral and due to heart failure. Both conditions should not be connected with your stomach(s). Your stomach pain could be due to stomach ulcer(s) located in the bigger stomach part that remained cut off after stomach bypass. This "stomach" can not be accessed neither trough gastroscopy nor colonoscopy. It can be examined only with surgical intervention (laparotomy). Your symptoms can be also due to some post stomach bypass complication like anastomotic leakage. Stomach cancer should be also excluded.
Enlarged liver and chronic pancreatitis are conditions that you probably had before stomach bypass. According to your height and weight you became only a little underweight. Have you done any laboratory tests like: blood count, hemoglobin, sedimentation rate, occult blood, liver status etc.?
Unknown cause of abdominal pain after gastric bypass.
Did anything come of this? I am 48 and had a GP in 2005. I had complications, I have had issues with ulcers for the last four years and this year the abdominal pain progressively worsened and I had stabbing pain every time I eat or drink. The pain radiates to my back and doctors can't seem to find anything wrong. I am frustrated and feel like I am alone with this issue. It surprised me to see this article because the symptoms were very similar to mine. I've had a CT and blood work and it seems my pancreas is normal. The pain gets worse from day to day so it has been difficult to keep a positive outlook. I keep going to my doctor but I feel as though he has given up and we are just waiting for my body to give up.

Thank you
Sincerely Heather O.
I'm a new gastric bypass patient. The surgery went fine, and the only issue I have is getting enough fluids down. I know that if I eat, and don't get the food chewed up enough to be smooth and somewhat liquid (not dry), I will get horrible pains between my shoulder blades. After reading these posts, I will check with my healthcare team to see if they know what's going on. Is my problem similar to yours? I have no pain or really much sensation that I'm getting from my stomach, just between my shoulder blades.
