I had been complaining to the doctor of aches on the right side of my back traveling to under my right breast. Not a "stabbing pain" rather like someone had their "fist" pushing into my body.
He did a pretty good physical exam and drew blood. The blood work came back good (kidney, liver, thyroid, etc.) and now sent me for an ultrasound. Bingo!
There they were; gall stones. Not big ones but none the less there.
Now, if I hadn't told the Tech that I was leaving for Walt Disney World in 2 days I really doubt that she would have told me what she saw. I had to promise that I wouldn't tell the Doctor.
My Dr. will not have the results back in time to review them with me.
So I guess while I'm in Florida I'll watch what I eat trying to avoid fatty foods. But I have to admitt food doesn't seem to "trigger" the pain. It just kinda pops up every now and then. If I lay down, it feels much better.
Any menu suggestions while I'm on vacation????
