Re: can't keep food down

Have them check your Gallbladder. Your symptoms sound very close to what mine where, constant vomiting. I as at a point I could need nothing down, liquids included.

Re: can't keep food down

I had an ultra sound yesterday, and they said my gallbladder looked fine? the dr. said that the next step would be a HIDA scan... he told me yesterday, "I am open to suggestions, b/c I don't know whats wrong" I gave him info that I had been reading on the web, as possible diagnosis, but he ruled my thoughts out. He is treating me with the antibiotic that is prescribed when you have a parasite, the one he thought I had was Giardia, the tests came back negative, but he thinks alteast the antiotic will kill any bacteria.
