Im confused can someone explain please
Ive had a pain in my right lower chest area going through to my back and it comes and goes but sometimes its stabbing making me scream unexpectedly mainly at night .
if i sit or lay down it comes on but is less if I stand up?
its been like it for 2months .
i had a chest xray and all is clear so its not broken ribs
I used to have Pancreas insuffiency but then they say i didnt?
So i came off creon 8 years ago
my GP got me a quick ultrasound.the report came back that afternoon on my patient acess web page
(which i must stress please everyone sign up to uk patient access? Web site Go to your GP and get a user ID number to view all your medical history for free) you can see letters &results from doctors consultants etc days before the GP Reads it or it comes in the post)
anyways the report said
The liver could not be adequately assessed due the scan restrictions and due to increased echogenecity throughout.
Appearances were of diffuse fatty infiltration.
In the areas seen there is no obvious intrahepatic duct dilation.
The gall bladder was partially obscured.
However,it appeared thin walled and didn't contain calculi.
The CBD was not dilated measuring 5.2mm.
The Pancreas was bright in appearance .
Appearances were of fatty infiltration.
No ascites seen.
i went to my GP next day and he said my scan was normal and didnt suggest diet or reducing alcohol or more exercise?
i said the letter said fatty liver etc and could i have a proper scan as she was young and didnt scan me sitting up or bending over which is why she couldnt access all of my bits properly?
and he said no need your fine go home
i asked about the pain he said take paracetamol?
Which i said didn't work
what shal i do people?
