Had Testing For Gall Bladder

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I have been sick from my gall bladder all summer, and had trouble getting a doctor to test it. One of the tests ordered was an endoscopy, which was done last Wed. GI doc found two "patches of inflammation" that he took biopsies from. The gall bladder doc (2 different docs, here) read the results of the biopsies to me, telling me there was inflammation in two spots with blunting. When I asked Blunted what? he said villi. I said "Oh, that's the celiac rearing it's ugly head." He said "Ok, then you know what that is all about!" It sure felt good to already know and understand what the doctor was afraid to tell me! My gall bladder does have to come out. That will happen tomorrow at noon. I had previously been diet-diagnosed, now, by accident, I am also biopsy-diagnosed.

;) Dessa, may God be with you in your surgery and during your recovery.

Also did you have hurting in your side and back before you were diagnosed with your gallbladder trouble, because my brother has been having a hurting in his right side around his waist and in his back around that area and won't go to the doctor.

Sincerely

I have a lot of pain in my right side, just under the ribcage. It feels like someone is running a hot poker from my front through my back, and it's coming out just under the right shoulder blade. 30 minutes after eating something with fat (dairy and meats are my triggers), I get the pain, and acid indigestion. About 4 hours later, I have to go do a #2, and it is acidic. It took a biliary scan to learn that it was the gall bladder. I wish your brother would see his doctor. Pain is not something to ignore for very long!

Hi!

Just wanted to mention that a very close friend of mine had her gall bladder out about six months ago after suffering with the pain for about 3 years. She has never felt better in her life! She is so glad she had it done!!

Good health vibes being sent your way!

Good luck on your surgery, I hope you feel better soon.

I am curious, I have the same pain and have had an ultrasound and ct scan which are normal. I have not had a biliary scan though. The pain always accompanies diarrhea and the sensitive spot in my back is painful to touch. I sat in one of those massaging chairs and when it hit there I was in pain. The doctor shrugged it off but I am not quite convinced

For my gall bladder, I had one xray, two ultrasounds, and a ct scan, all of which came back normal. The biliary scan came back normal on function, but abnormal on reaction. It was the only test that even hinted something was wrong with the gall bladder. It was removed today, and for the first time since April, I was able to eat without pain and nausea. I had the laparascopic surgery, and the only pain I have is the incisions (4 of them, all very small) themselves. I had to stand my ground with two of the doctors that were treating me, and tell them to forget about the insurance, I wanted it out! GB doc said I would only have a 50/50 chance of getting better after the surgery, so I told him I was willing to take that risk. I already feel so much better, it is almost unreal, and it has only been 12 hours since the operation! Stick to your guns. Insist on more definitive tests, and if you think it's necessary, surgery. One thing I learned with Celiac, is that my health is my responsibility, and I have to make sure it is taken care of!

    • Respected consumer advocacy group Public Citizen is calling for the FDA to ban the sale Benicar, due to the potential for side effects to which Public Citizen refers as "life-threatening." According to Public Citizen, olmesartans risks outweigh any benefits. Should Benicar be banned? View the full article
    • The thing is.  They didn't have to say anything about gluten free food.  They didn't have to put that mean-spirited dig in there at all.  They could have just showed the awesome thing for serving food.  People with food sensitivities would have just substituted gluten-free or peanut free food in their minds.  Just like anyone would have said - I hate cucumbers - so my party tray won't have that on it.
    • Thank you so much! So is the positive IgG pretty indicative of celiac (could it be anything else)? I havent read any of those posts on diet, so I’ll have to start. Honestly, I’m happy to start gluten free. At the start of this, I was so bummed out that I’d have to give up foods. But confirming that it is gluten making me sick, I don’t want to eat it anymore. Kind of nice I got a “farewell to gluten” tour but so happy it’s over. Unfortunately, there is only one office here in Asheville, NC and it’s renowned for being awful (just look at the reviews!!) I’m on Nashville a lot for work, so maybe I can look for a good doctor there instead. 
    • So PC is not celiac pc? I'm sure fictitious  "Tina" in the ad will discard her "immature anti celiac ad friends" like used napkins and find new friends that are less grossed out by her autoimmune disease.  Or perhaps fictitious "Tina " will patiently educate the baffon friends in the ad. Tina's choice. Another company made a bad choice to join the gluten dude list of celiac bashing in the public media  Hey PC want to attempt to get out of dog house ? contact me for where to send my check For your next marketing idea/ script for your commercial  Your next commercial show two tables one designated gluten-free and one non gluten-free show 2 different color coded themes one gluten-free and non gluten-free example red for gluten-free and black non gluten-free ( whatever game day team colors- catch my drift) showing gluten-free cake served on red plate and non gluten-free cake on other table on black plate. Yo support celiac awareness and safety. this marketing tip per AWOL  contact me for my royalty checks  👍  
    • .....damn I thought I had run into stupid doctors on my own, yours flip flop more then a ADHD kid and I should know that one. Yep celiac and gluten-free for life....get copies of all your POSITIVE test and compile them in a folder, write the others off as doctor stupid was tripping on acid. Get copies of all your medical records and personally take them to a new doctor....might want to look through them first and make sure the idiot did not put anything in there wrong. Well if you can anyway......
      Congrats on the diagnosis and sorry you found one of the idiots, you get those a lot in life just sucks when it is someone in charge of your well-being and health like that. I take it you have already been through the newbie 101 thread and gone to a whole foods diet to boost up the healing, cleaned out the kitchen and set for the haul.
