Anyone like me??? A puzzle!

Posted , 4 users are following.

I started out with right sided rib area pain. My amylase, lipase, IgG4 and Ca19-9 are mildly elevated. Nothing is showing up on any of my 9 scans or tests. Could this be my gallbladder?

    I am really not sure.

    I had same symptoms as you but it did show gallstones on the scan so I had my gallbladder removed a few years ago.

    Is there any chance it could be kidney stones and not gallstones?

    I have had both and symptoms were quite similar.

    Take care and keep in touch

    Did your symptoms improve once your gallbladder was out?

    HI

    Could be gallbladder related. remember gallbladder/liver/ pancreas/ stomach all closely related. Maybe sludge (minute stones)? Hard to pick up on scans. Have you other symptoms? Have you tried eating a low fat diet to see if that helps?
