I can't believe the first MRCP is in December, what are you supposed to do until then? It's the same test I had, they want to see if the pain is from the liver or pancreas. How were your blood tests, did they show it could be pancreatic? Mine didn't but he wants to test anyway, not sure what that means.
You know, if the pain gets too bad you could try going to the ER. If they admit you they may be able to get you in for your tests sooner. Just a thought. The last time I was admitted, they did x-rays, CT scan, colonoscoy, and MRI in a matter of 3 days with NO prep because I was so sick, lol, that was the best part.
The best thing about the tests I had done today was that there was no prep. At least no prep for normal people, I had to have premeds as I'm allergic to IV iodine (prednisone again, just when I thought I was starting to feel normal, lol).
Thanks for the advice. I didn't have barium, but I had some other stuff that's just as radioactive, so you're right, I should drink lots of water.
