hospital or not?

Posted , 8 users are following.

3 months ago im diagnosed having gallbladder polyp, acid reflux and fatty liver.(im 26,only 5'3 in height and 60 kls weight.)I've been on medication but i stopped because i felt sicker.After i stop my meds i feel fine just by being careful on what I eat but then 3 days ago after my lunch i had a severe abdominal pain and i felt my stomach acid and felt like vomiting though its just water.Then after that i develop a trauma which i dont eat a lot and just go with soups.

ive done urinalysis just a week ago and says im acidic,my rbc is a bit high and i have bacteria.i want to go back to my doctor but afraid that she'll just give me meds again so i was thinking if i just go straight to the hospital for another lab test.?

    Go back to gp for further tests and please share your feedback with the medication with your gp. Do not be afraid and if needs to be change gp.

    Hi Trish, how did they diagnosed you with fatty liver? Through ultrasound? DAre you a heavy drinker or smoker? Just like Ed said you need to get more testings done, don’t be afraid to do so.

      Diagnosed fatty liver just through blood test? They didn’t monitor the enzyme levels every few months? To see if it’s getting higher and higher? Nothing showed up from your ultrasounds? I had elevated ALT and they are monitoring it now. Nothing showed on my ultrasound. Negative on viral hepatitis

    Can I ask why and what meds are you on. So when you stop taking them you fell better. I wouldn't take them until you see your doctor. Just curious why you are going through all of this. If all of your family had IBS then possible you have it too. You need to get with your doctor to come up with a plan. Or just get a second opinion. Going to hospital won't be a good idea. All they do is give people the wrong diagnosis. Anyway good luck.

      I have never though that i would be saying that but your statement make absolutely no sense and with your advise you can possibly cause more damage then good. You cant judge all hospitals based on your experience. In india they are slightly different then here in Europe.

      Specialy while Trish is clearly in need of medical attention if only that but probably words of encouragement and postive attitude will be the least we should offer here.

      Please consider that you are dealing here with humans and all cases are individual.

      Good job. You need to look after yourself..some of us try self diagnosing and sometimes successfully...but gp and hospital is a safe bet. Please do not worry... And for the fatty liver part.... Its reversible in early stages.. try to avoid fat and say no to alcohol. Take care

      If i may ad.... Relax and try to listen to your body but do not i say do not relate all feelings with your condition....it will boost your anxiety up to the sky. I am sure you will be ok it will just need time to find the cause and time to heal.
