I tried doing a Google search for the symptoms, and only found ridiculous weight-loss tips!
She has had off-and-on diarrhea, noticed a while ago she has a hard/firm bulge on the right side of her abdomen/stomach area, and she has had dramatic weight loss over the past several months. She has always had a small appetite, and doesn't eat much, and has lost a ton of weight even though she loves sweets and heavy foods.
She has talked to her Dr. about it but for some reason he put her on anti-biotics and has not done any kind of test to find out what is wrong. Does anyone have any ideas???
