Last week I was having some severe stomach pain. It was to the point where it was debilitating and I almost had to go to the ER. I drank some Miralax and upped my dosage of omeprazole after chatting with my doctor. It seems like it’s significantly helped with my stomach problems.
Have you had stomach pain? Do you know what caused it?
Are you on omeprazole?
What solved the problem, if it was solved? (I’m so sorry if it wasn’t!)
1) Yes. My gallbladder went septic earlier this year. I also experienced pain in my appendix, which was caused by inflammation.
3) Surgery! I had my gallbladder and appendix removed two months later.
1. I’ve had little GI involvement with my CF. I think growing up I had worse problems than I do now. I used to not be able to tolerate some really fatty foods (probably some pancreatic insuffiency I was dealing with, but refusing to take enzymes)
2. I’m on omeprazole, but since starting the triple combo — I’m noticing my acid reflux doesn’t quite exist. Kinda wild
