constant pain in lower stomach and inability to retain food

I am desperate for help. Some years ago I suffered nausea and sickness and was unable to retain food .Then followed constant pain in the lower stomach which was diagnosed as appendicitis. These were removed but still the problems persisted . I have had many tests without anything showing up. I was given a trigger point injection which was supposed to relieve the pain but this seems to have made matters worse. I am still losing weight due to inability to keep food down, in constant pain even taking morphine and have now had to start using a wheelchair. All I get from the doctors is you will have to learn to live with it But what is IT ????Confused?????
My life at the moment is miserable and no end is in site.
Is anyone out there suffering the same?

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. Anorexia and bowel pain needs to be evaluated. it could be irritable bowel syndrome or due to some other local discomfort. Please consult a local physician and let them sort it out. Modify diet and lifestyle. Visit our iBS health center for further guidance.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
