Hi guys 😊 I saw my specialist for the 2nd time last week and he seems to be clueless as to what is going on. I'VE been suffering with moderate to severe upper right quadrant pain that radates to my back and lasts from 3 hrs to (at its worst) 4 days. IT seems to come on after greasy/fatty meals but haven't pin pointed exactly what causes it. I'm constantly tired, sometimes suffer with bad nausea but never sick.
Up to now ive had
Ct scan which was fine
Ultrasound showed slightly dilated bile duct
Blood showed slightly elevated billarubin levels on a couple of occasions
Endoscopy was fine
He sat there and simply said I don't know what to do for you. WHICH is very frustrating when you don't seem to be getting anywhere. I asked for a HIDA scan so should get the appointment through over the next few weeks as much as I don't want anything to be wrong I'd rather something come back showing something is and hopefully have an answer to all this pain.
No pain killers work and at the moment I have an unbarable pain in my right upper back/shoulder blade. My docs are fed up with me and is starting to suggest ibs but I don't think it's the case.
Work is also on my back and had to have an attendence review meeting and was told any more time off and I'm in big trouble. I've already cut my hrs from 38 to 18 and still struggling 😕
Does anyone have any suggestions on what to do next if the hida scan comes back ok? I feel my specialist could be doing more but he just seems too laid back
