At first we thought it might be gastric problem, but after taking gastric medicines and food in control still the problem didn't gone.We are very worried about the block as the doctor said, and later he said we need to go for angiography to be sure about the blocks. But, we are very nervous is there anything that we need to be worried about.
Please let me know if anything else is needed.
Will be waiting for your reply.
Thanks in advance.
