Ugggh...that wasn't directed at any of you, but to my gallbladder. I have been having issues with nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea for almost a year, and my GI has ruled pretty much everything out, but refuses to send me to the surgeon to take my gallbladder out because there's nothing evident to suggest it is my gallbladder. Ultrasound was normal, HIDA scan was normal, Small bowel series-normal, and she won't do any other tests because she doesn't want to expose me to more radiation. I have right upper abdomen pain, nausea after eating, and constant diarrhea. I would like to have my gallbladder removed...if that isn't it, then I'll never have to consider that and can assume it's a crohn's flare, and if it is, then problem will be fixed. My mom had her's removed in her 30s so I'm likely to have problems with it at some point.
BTW Mag, I like that your signature says "next surgery: none" I like!
