The joys of being a caregiver means you either know the problem and diagnoses before the doctor or you know where to research it.
This problem is getting worse, doctors don't know what is going on except I have swollen lymph nodes per CT Scan. I double over in very acute pain grabbing my right side. CT shows its not my gall bladder or appendix but the lymph nodes are swollen. The pain is so severe where I have to take morphine and bentyl. Being the curious monkey I am, I I looked up bentyl as I don't have a patient on it so not familar with it. Bentyl shows its a medication for IBS (Irratital Bowel Syndrome), yet the only symptom I have is the severe pain in my stomach.
Now, recently I learned both of my grandmothers have fat intolerance (intolerance to fattty foods). So I'm just venting and asking for ideas and questions to ask because I'm stumped, and all the doctors know is my lymph nopes are swollen.
Swollen lymph nodes are usually signs of infection, but how can a person be "infected" for months on end? I also know it can mean lymph node cancer, but since I'm already in chemotherapy and have routine MRI's and bloodwork, I can safetly gather I more than likely don't have that form of cancer.
