Hello

My wife is having steady pain under her right ribs.

She has had this pain before, but it would come and go away for a longer period of time.

She has no Gallbladder. The occasional pain was attributed to scar tissue from the surgery to remove the Gallbladder many years ago.

Her Lyme is well under control and only needs occasional treatment to keep her feeling normal. Bart is also either gone or at least a non issue at this time. No other known infections. She is healthy in all other respects.

This may not be related to Lyme and she is going to have it checked out by a doctor

Anybody had something similar happen?

Thank you.

Dan

I think I read that liver fluke parasites can cause this pain. Did she ever get treated for parasites.

She has not specifically been treated for parasites. She has used MMS a few years ago which does kill some parasites.

It is one possibility, but I think it is a remote one. I will try a parasite treatment with my Rife machine and see if she has any response.

Thank you.

My daughter had weird ghost pains there for years (had her gallbladder out too). I've heard this is common for people who've had them out, but unfortunately don't know the answer as to why.

Dan - could be the sphincter of Odi causing this.

I have sphincter of Oddi dysfunction which is the cause for my pain in that area. Does she have any liver enzyme spikes? Is her pain accompanied by pressure?

ERCP with manometry is how they diagnose it. I had to have it done twice, and things went very poorly the first time. It is a pretty risky procedure because it can irritate the pancreas.

I would definitely seek a gastroenterologist to rule out anything other than Lyme-related things.

I agree with cozynanna about the parasites being the cause. You might want to try some herbals that contain wormwood, cloves and black walnut hull along with the rife. I remember reading on a rife site that that's what was recommended along with using rife.

She is going to see the doctor in case it is something obvious that might show up on a ultrasound or something of that nature.

If that does not show anything then we will likely try the Humaworm product. I am sure we all have parasites to one degree or another and it should not do any harm.

If that does not work, she may have to see a specialist.

Thanks for the ideas. I never even heard of sphincter of Oddi dysfunction. I learn new things all the time here.

I would get an ultrasound. I've had a stone in my bile duct before. No fun. ( no gallbladder either )

Ouch!!! I know how unbelievably painful gallbladder attacks are; I can only imagine how bad the pain is from stones in your bile duct.
They can see them on either ultrasound or in MRCP's, too, I think. MRCP's aren't risky the way ERCP's are.
