Gallstones-Can they be hidden?
Well, back to square one. I have been tested for gallstones, gallbladder emptying, and gastroparesis. My doc said it was a motility disorder of the small intestine and it could have been caused by stress. I had another abdomen sonogram done and it showed my bile ducts had widen and that is a sign of gallstones. Had a 2nd CT scan w/dye and that showed a stone. My bile ducts were back to normal and my doc says I could have passed a stone. My symptoms for the past couple of years have been right shoulder pain and chest pain, and sometimes clay colored stools. This definitely runs in my family. Now I just feel sick all day with nausea. He is pretty convinced I could have more stones since my pancreas is inflamed and referred me to a surgeon. Can gallstones be this difficult to find?
