can anyone tell me anything about gastritis, and a hiatal hernia.
he said that the hiatal hernia was nothing, but he take a test and sent it off to see what kind of gastritis it was.
I told him that the pain in my stomach would radiating from my stomach and side in to my back about haft way my back, on my right and left side and back to.
so he sent me to get a cat scan of my pancreas , I do not no why he want me to get a cat scan of my pancreas, about a month ago he gave me a blood test and he told me a after I had the endoscopy that my blood test came back and my amylase was high, and he sent me to get a cat scan.

Re: endoscopy/guestion?

Hi birden,
I can't tell you anything except that you're lucky that your doctor ordered these tests and is tryng to get to the bottom of your pain. Your pain is widespread so he is trying to check the pancreas based on the amylase elevation. I also have a hiatal hernia, just about helf of the population does. Did you ask him why he ordered the cat scan? I'm sure he'd tell you the's an excellent test to find out what's really going on. When will your scan take place?

When I was at the doctor office, he told me to come back in two weeks, and I would heard from all my test then.
