Thanks for your input, I am at my wits ends.
It was a upper barium gi that the Cincinnati doc ordered but not the small bowel, which is what dad wanted to have due to his pain went from the front of his stomach (that he had for a few years now) to his lower left back.
Dad has pretty good intuition and I trust his opinion. He worked in law enforcement for years so he knows when something isn't quite right.
I don't know if it was a cat scan dad got a month ago at Bethesda North hospital in Cincinnati because they thought he had kidney stones but he didn't.
It's pretty bad when you WONT GO to our local hospital, becase two inches of Mama's med records say it was surgical error during Mama's gall bladder surgery that killed her so we travel to cincy a hours drive.
