Could it not be ascites?

Symptoms of bloating (constant) up to rib cage and pain after eating. Does anyone know if it could be something else like an ulcer? I had been eating lots of beans which upset my stomach immensely so I wonder if that could have caused an ulcer?

It could be ascites. The fluid build up around the liver is what caused me pain in my righty upper quadrant. Also pressure after eating because there simply wasn't enough room for the food in my stomach and the fluid around my liver. Ofcourse it may not be that at all. Just speaking from my experience.
