Is It Just Stomach Pain Or Something Else?

Ahh….that pain in the stomach! Each of us is often struck by agonizing stomach aches and the painful discomfort can even restrict regular activities. But most times the pain is just due to over eating, gas or mild constipation which goes away soon. Simple home remedies, rest or even mild medication can do the trick. Sometimes all it takes is eating the right kind of food or even simply just staying away from food for a short while!  But what if you find yourself doubled up with
pain, crouching on the floor and clutching the stomach, that too on a regular basis? Can it be dismissed just as lightly? Cramps and other debilitating pain in the abdominal region can signal something else! Gastrointestinal and colorectal disorders often get aggravated due to our negligent dismissal and ignorance – we often try to ‘just get on with it’. Even common flatulence, bloating or constipation issues on a regular basis can be a precursor of bigger issues.

Yes, the common stomach ache is also the most common symptom of many gastrointestinal diseases from gallstones, stomach ulcers, appendicitis, intestinal adhesions, irritable bowel syndrome, diverticulitis and Crohn’s disease to even the dreaded cancer. It may or may not be accompanied by bloating, vomiting, diarrhea, fever, chills or even rectal bleeding depending on the disease.

These types of gastrointestinal or colorectal disorders are not just painful and crippling; they can become quite upsetting and humiliating as well. Where frequent diarrhea, fecal incontinence or loss of control is involved, life becomes all about mad searches and violent dashes to the nearest toilet. Again, it’s much easier to discuss a throat infection or even broken ligament than hemorrhoids (piles) or colonic polyps or anal cancer – with the doctors as well as in social settings! Mr. Abhay Chopada – one of UK’s top surgical gastroenterologists – specializes in colorectal treatment. Despite quality services available in many hospitals, this colorectal surgeon London sensed the glaring lack of considerate and compassionate care for the afflicted sufferers. To fill this glaring need and free patients of the acute embarrassment, he established GastroSurgery UK with the principal motto to extend ‘competent compassionate care’ coupled with excellent healthcare solutions for all embarrassing bowel problems and surgical conditions. He is supported by a qualified and wonderfully dedicated team of professionals who ensure that they first drive away the patients’ fears and put them at ease before providing quality colorectal treatment as required.

GastroSurgery UK provides a full range of gastrointestinal and colorectal treatments to serve a variety of bowel issues like all types of hernia, polyps, hemorrhoids, fissures, adhesions and warts to even appendicitis, colitis, diverticulitis, lactose intolerance, pilonidal sinus and colon, rectal or anal cancer. The team can proficiently conduct various diagnostic tests like endoscopy, colonoscopy, gastroscopy and flexible sigmoidoscopy to identify the precise disorder and suggest necessary colorectal treatment. They can expertly perform both laparoscopic and surgeries when deemed necessary.

Therefore, stomach pain is not always about gas or constipation; it can spring from varied other reasons. Ignore this warning sign at your own peril! Mr Abhay Chopada
