:p my first post! 81 year old mother inlaw we have been to the doctors, specialist, scans, blood.stool test, hospital visits x2, ambo ride, and yet another specialist visit next week! the general belief is a gall stone 3inches in the gallbladder, but the last doctor wasn't so sure. No one seems to be on the same page! I must admit the symptoms don't seem to match gallbladder,on what I have researched and asked ...Please any advice or suggestions would be appreciated!!
Her symptoms are...
tummy pain but no constant and every now and then,
vomiting and diahorrea, in fact she can't keep any food or liquid in. so she hardly eats and is weak and tired from this and has of course lost weight and a little pale looking.
These wymptoms have been with her for about 3 months...she only told us about 4 weeks ago, she doesn't complain!! unlike me! hehe
thanks and any thoughts would be great!!
