My mother is 44 and have 15 years old hepatitis b, though always in control. She suffers from excessive gastric disorders like bloating, pain in stomach, head and upper back and sometimes constipation. She weighs 40kgs. Everyday is a struggle.she cannot live on medicines as it'll effect her liver. Almost gave up on doctors. Hoping for some good advice here.
My mother has a similar issue, only thing is that when she bloats her appendix is at risk of exploding and she could die at any moment without proper medication. Now i did read that you prefer her not to live on medications but there are great medications out there for this specific issue. Has she tried any medications that help with IBS ( Irritable bowel syndrome)? They come in powder for like miralax. It reduces the bloating and stomach ache and helps her go without the rush. Another possibility is for her to go on a complete liquid diet for a week. She will lose from 10-15 pounds. My mother was put on this exact diet when they thought emergency surgery was needed. Hope this help, best wishes Crescent Moon.
