After 7 years of sometimes severe pain, surgeries for gallbladder removal, hysterectomy, liver biopsy and SO many ultra sounds, X-rays, MRIs, scans, etc. I had a colonoscopy and endoscopy on Monday that was normal. This was ordered since I have had blood in my stool for one year and have lost 30 pounds. I had been told over 3 years ago that my main duct was totally dilated. My blood counts had been getting worse, I had become anemic the last year and a half and the pain has been so intense it is debilitating. After Monday's exams, the GI doc, said I needed another CT scan to compare to the other to see how bad my pancreas was...WOW, what the heck. After getting on this great site, I realize you guys know so much more than the doctors. Now I am starting to get scared and wonder what should I do? I think I should start a liquid diet, but hope someone can give me some ideas. My insurance stinks so I can't go into the hospital. Any suggestions will be appreciated greatly. I am 64 years old. I never drank liquor or took drugs. I am feeling desperate and a bit hopeless since so much time has passed and the doctors have not done a darn thing.
