Re: Just not getting better "stomach"
I had similar problems. Nausea, upper middle to rightsided pain that also would radiate to my back in the shoulder blade area occasionally.Sometimes dull, sometimes sharp. It went on for about a year and during that time I had upper endoscopy, barium swallow, blood testing and ultrasound (to look for gallstones) on my gut. Nothing showed except elevated levels of my liver. After lots of research on my own, I asked my dr. to send me for a HIDA scan but he said not necessary, so I asked to be sent to my gastroenterologist. He was more than happy to send me for that scan, which shows the "function" of the gallbladder. Mine was sluggish, did not work, so everytime I ate it would spasm, trying to get the bile to the small intestine to digest my food. I also went from diarheea to constipation. Always thought I had irratable bowel syndrome but I felt much better after having my gallbladder removed. Just thought I would share since I saw similarities.
