  • i have had stomach ulcers in the past and kidney cancer to which i recovered. during the past two years ive been in constant excrutiating pain from my stomach upwards to my ribs. my consultant originally said it was my pancreas but now he says my bowel is so swollen its large and this would explain my massive bloating and feeling unable to breathe. my daughter has studied my symptoms as i see her regularly and said it was crohns. my consultant said it could be but feel i need a correct diagnosis as then could get the correct medication. i do feel bit better since taking lactulose buscopan and have taken lansoprazole since my stomach ulcer
