I've been suffering since May 2019 with pain under the ribcage that doctors mistakenly diagnosed as a gallbladder problem. They removed the gallbladder in June and things became progressively worse afterward. I lost 30 pounds and have been suffering with daily pain under both sides of the ribcage and back since. Have burning in my stomach and esophagus that I didn't have before the gallbladder surgery, and no appetite whatsoever. I've slowly been getting a bit better, thanks to my faith in God and many prayers but still have daily pain and have been unable to work at the office for the last 8 months. The doctors have been in no rush to do anything for me this entire time. After fighting with my GI doctor, I recently had an MRCP, which showed a dilated pancreatic duct in the middle/tail region and a cyst on my kidney. The recommendation on the report was to follow up in one year. Have any of you had a dilated pancreatic duct (indicative of a cyst or blockage) and accompanying symptoms like pain under the ribcage that refers to the back and no appetite? Did your doctor treat this or do additional testing to see what was causing the blockage? I have been fighting with doctors for months now to get any testing at all as none of them seem to care. My next follow up isn't until May. I called a different GI practice and got an appointment in April. Is a dilated duct and elevated ALK with pain and loss of appetite not a real concern? I guess I am stumped as to how the radiologist felt that follow up in one year was appropriate.
