upper right quadrant pain
by Tracy Marraffa
in 2001 I had a pain in my upper right quadrant. I went to the doctor and he had bloodwork and an ultrasound done. Nothing. Then I went back with more pain had a hydascan done.
I was told I would get injected with a dye that would empty out through my gallbladder and they could see this on a monitor. The process was to take an hour. Well it was extremely slow and took almost 3 hours for it to start even going through my gallbladder. anyway they told my doctor it was negative.
( I think it was sluggish because of the time it took to even start to empty from my gallbladder but what do I know) ...forward a few years..I have had this pain pretty much every day...well I had a very sharp piercing pain in my gallbladder /liver area and went to the ER. They did bloodwork and ultrasound..I had a vaginal ultrasound also and nothing. they said my gallbladder was ok and I didnt appear to have any cyst on my ovaries.
Anyhow forward a year later to now...I still get this pain. Every single day. It radiates from my upper quadrant to my back...occasionally i feel a small bump like the tip of a finger when i rub the area. When I sleep I have pain, its less pain when I am awake and not laying down.
I hate going through this. I am constantly thinking Im going to end up with Cancer. Help
