About 2 moths ago I lost my appetite, didnt think much about it, 1,2,3 more weeks no appetite? Went to doc, said possible IBS go take stomach ultrasound(NORMAL) bloodwork(NORMAL) hidascan (NORMAL) stomach emptying(NORMAL) went to ER felt really bad they did CT scan and bloodwork (NORMAL) family doc (which is awesome) sent me to surgeon quickly. He said 90% gallbladder took it out 3 days later(yesterday) It was the gallbladder scar tissue and severley inflamed took it out, already feel better although sore from surgery.I beat my head against the wall for months and with the technology we have today, I didnt need a test to tell me I was fine when I was sick. I know it sounds like exploratory surgery but if you have a good dr who can refer you to a good surgeon you will be good. I wish all of you the best of luck keep your FAITH that is what saved me.
