The barium swallow test showed I have a small hiatal hernia. The nurse said that the Dr said that it shouldn't be causing me any problems. So this is not the problem either. The surgeon prescribed a short term of steriods. They have helped some. Almost through with them. I think I told y'all, ever since I threw up for the week, the middle part between my ribs and the left side of my ribs have started to hurt too. I don't think that gallbladder hurts on BOTH sides does it? Ive got to see the GI Dr next Thurs but there's no more tests she can do until the 6 mos is up. Going to primary Dr next week to get chest xray. I have lost 8 pounds since I was sick. Although I have not been drinking cokes, so maybe thats why I'm not gaining it back. My brother passed away from lung cancer when he was 42. His chest xray didnt show up his cancer. It took a ct scan. He was dead the next week. My Dr ordered a chest xray of me 2 yrs ago but wouldn't order a ct. Said it wasnt necessary. Even to put my mind at ease. Same with gallbladder. I am giving him one more try next week. If he doesnt order a follow up ct, if the xray is clear, I am finding another Dr. I am trying to hold it together, but I cry EVERY DAY because of the burning and pain under both sides of my ribs now. I worry my husband......I worry myself. Thanks for listening.
