HIDA and ultrasound done waiting on a CT scan results next week to rule out most cancers.
Had the flu and ended up in the hospital dehydrated enough that it kicked me over into DKA (even though my blood sugar levels were not much higher than they normally are) got checked out after 3 days then home to recover.
While home began to experience pain on right side under rib but put it off due to severe coughing thinking I bruised something.
Pain did not go away and my stools were turning yellow so visited my GP who thought it might be my gallbladder since I rarely ever have digestion issues and he ordered a ultrasound scan though the pain did go away about a 3 days later mostly.
Had the ultrasound scan 3 weeks later and it came back negative though still had occasional bouts of pain but no where near as bad so doctor ordered a HIDA scan and it found nothing wrong so went home.
Went out with my brother to burger king for lunch 2 days later (I know, its fatty but these days I rarely indulge due to my diabetes) and withing 12 hours pain was back on right side under my ribs though it only lasted an hour or two and no where near as severe.
Pain began to dissipate on the right however began to experience a pain in the middle just below the breastbone which spread out a bit the left and lasted about 4 days.
Not as severe a pain as the gallbladder but annoying however it began to go away by monday though with a few sharp stabs of pain that are all over from gallbladder area to my left side and under the armpit to down lower near my waste.
Also my bowel movements are not happening anywhere near as often though they are still pretty yellow.
So my question is could this be because further damage to my pancreas entirely or is it more likely I am dealing with a combination of pancreas + gallbladder issues be it gallstones or sludge?
For the record I also was a 2 liter a day diet soda drinker which I stopped when I got the flu so not sure if that plays a part in it much.
