I will do that, I will ask for an Ultra sound, Thank you for the advice. Because when I last saw my Doctor she just sat there and said I do not know, what is going on with you, got up And walked out leaving me sitting there. I think PET SCAN, MRI. ULTRA SOUND, anything I thought do not give up on me, my pain is real, this pain is new to me. I had my youngest brother ignore his pain, until it sent him to the Hospital, by then he was diagnosed with terminal Pancreatic Cancer, he was diagnosed in early Nov. passed away Dec.23, 2006, he had just turned 44yrs old. If there is anything going on I want to catch it early, if you know what I mean.
