I was told that you cannot see an ulcer on an ultrasound. They discovered a Gallstone on my ultrasound. They also did an Upper GI to see if I had an ulcer and eventually a scope (a camera to look into my stomach) I find out next week if they found an ulcer) They can also do a blood test to see if you have the H PYLORI bacteria that causes an ulcer.
I had my gall bladder removed 6 years ago. I have had nothing but problems since..in fact i almost died with the surgery.
I had ALOT of testing since. My internist did upper GI, CT scan, ultrasound. Never would give me the results. I got the run around from the doctors. I got mad and took all my films to my other doctor. He said..."your gall bladder is STILL there with a drain, it was never removed." He wrote a letter to the medical board reporting the 4 other doctors involved. More tests proved that my gall bladder was still there.
I was just sent for another CT scan and now all the sudden, my doctor who claimed my gallbladder was there, who wrote to the medical board, claims he was wrong, that its a tumor...I smell somthing fishy! Why would a doctor accuse 4 other doctors of malpratice, then 2 months later renig on what He found. Wouldn't a normal person make sure they were right?
