Past adhesions and blockage.

Well I have posted several times to this website I guess each time I
have had trouble with my upper gastric area. Last June I had a blockage
which was removed. In february I had a severe bout of diverticulitis.
Now I am having more severe upper gastric pain. Some that doubles me
over but doesn't last for too long some is dull bad pains. My questions
is since my doctors don't know what to do now, what do you all think I
should do. Here is the latest updates on all my current tests:
Urine Test: positive blood, bad bladder infection.
Urine Cytology: positive blood
Blood work up normal
Pain under left rib cage to 2-3" catycorner from my belly button and on
the right upper quad just under my rib cage. My blood tests have always
said normal, but I know that I am having this pain. They decided not to
do anything about my positive blood in urine but on several different
Synthoid for Hypothyroidism
Reglan 10 mg for moving food faster
Glumetza for Type II diabetes
Protonix for GERD
Nulev for stomach cramps
Nothing for pain at all even ibuprophin doesn't work
so I guess my current diagnosis' are:
I have had several stomach surgeries and don't want to have anymore
unless I can make sure I am going to be ok. I don't want to end up
helpless on pain meds. I am wondering if there are more tests they can
do or if I should just give in. I thought that maybe I have some sort
of Autoimmune problems that are causing all of this. When I was having
that sharp colicky pain and they gave me delauded and my stomach went
nuts but the next day I felt better, but questions all the instant
motility after given that drug. It literally hurt me bad, but then it
subsided. Now I am having that colicky pain again, similar but not the
same as when I had a blockage. So I am a little confused what this
could be or where I should go next, the doctors said they cannot help me
if they cannot see it. So now I am left like the others with constant
pain in my stomach and nobody that cares. They probably think im going
bonkers. STarting to think that myself.
thanks for all your input.
