My doctor just called and furthered my frustration. My results are "indeterminate." The gall bladder continued filling up (normal) but never contracted (which it is supposed to do) and never showed signs of emptying (which it is supposed to do). Plus, because I "only" had nausea and not pain (I don't usually have pain, just bad nausea, and perhaps what I'd call "discomfort"), that isn't "normal," either. Well, who said I'm normal???

So, she wants me to continue with the EDG on Monday (Upper GI) to have them check my stomach. If that is normal, she is hoping the surgeon will agree to take out my gall bladder. Otherwise, I'm stuck. Well, at least here in Park Rapids. At that point, I will ask for a referral to Fargo and have my records transferred there. I'm so frustrated about all this and just want to enjoy life (and food, other than toast) again. Besides, even toast made me sick last night.

I'm so frustrated about this all, can you tell? But at least she's prescribing me something for the nausea, thank God.

So, it's back to waiting and continuing to learn patience.

I'll keep ya posted.

(and at least I continue to lose weight!)

my bet is on the gall blader - Lowell for several years (long ago)would have what we thought were flu like symtems every once in a while. But one night he had extreem pain and so the gall bladder came out. And he was ok.

So, just nauseating toast is the key to losing weight?? :)

well if you end up in Fargo let me know - I'll visit you....

I remember when Dad had his gall bladder out - over Easter I believe. He did feel better later.

What a horrible way to lose weight. Yuckkkk!
I sure hope you find and get the problem fixed before the busy holiday season begins.
My prayers are for your medical answers.
