My pulmonary care doctor spent 1 and 1/2 hours with me yesterday and decided to treat me with antibiotics to see if the "abnormality" shrinks. He is thinking "perhaps" it is pneumonia even though I don't present with any symptoms. He did say the pain can be caused by this ailment. SO I will take the anti biotic for 10 days. If I am not feeling better in 5-10 days I should call my internist and him. Every doctor who has seen me for this says it might be the gallbladder. But the ultrasound did not pick up any stones. It did show borderline dilation of the common bile duct. THAT would cause pain if there was a definite dilation of the CBD. Cancer was not spoken but he did say he was concerned with what he saw on the xray.
I need a new xray in 6 weeks and a follow up with him within 8 weeks.
This is sooooooooooooooooo deja vu!
How is everybody doing? I won't be here a lot anymore. I did start a part time job and it's fun to be out and about and hob knobbing with people again.
