I switched doctors today after 2 years of not getting any better.  He seems nice enough and very thorough.  I'll have a colonoscopy on the 17th and a Hida Scan (never heard of this one, I think it's one of those nuclear tests) on the 26th.  Today was blood work.  Hopefully he can figure out what's causing all my pain.  Another good thing that came out of this is I now have a copy of all my medical records.  From now on I'll get a copy of all tests I have done.  Thanks to you guys who advised me on this.  Going through all those papers made for some interesting reading and told me alot about myself.  I'm hoping this new doc is  the answer to my prayers.  Hope you are all having good days.  Arlene

Great you got your records/tests....you have lot going on, and it's definitely best to have them regarding reference.
