25 female, 5 foot 10, 70kg, white british, no current medicine.
Had an operation to remove a benign breast lump 5 months ago. Routine operation and I was told all went well.
2 weeks after the op I started to throw up in the evening several times. This gradually progressed to being sick 20 times a day.
I have been in and out of the doctors and hospital and so far I have had blood tests (showing nothing), endoscopy and stomach biopsy (showing nothing), barium swallow test and x-ray (showing stomach was not emptying properly), MRI scan (showing no blockage in the stomach, but enlarged lymph nodes). Through waiting for appointments and tests, all of this has taken 5 months.
I am going to see the doctor next week to discuss the MRI scan in full detail, however on the phone he seemed to not have any idea what was wrong and potentially suggested a biopsy of the lymph node.
Given that each test that we have been going through keeps taking a month each time and obviously means I can't go into work and I am not being paid fully (I also have a mortgage to pay), this is extremely annoying.
I wondered if anyone had any clue or had any tests to push for? I am just not convinced a biopsy is going to show anything and may just waste more time.
