Hi,

Symptomshttp://kona.kontera.com/javascript/lib/imgs/grey_loader.gif
5-6 months duration,

Constant Nausea, worse 2-6 hours after eating.

Acid Reflux.

Weight loss 10-20 Kg in this time

No pain.

More help needed to find an answer. What I now need is to find out what tests I should now have done to proceed to a diagnosis. I would like to go armed with as much info as possible for when I next see my G.I Doc next.

Last week I had a gastroscopy/oesophago-gastro duodenoscopy on Friday afternoon.

I am waiting to hear the full report from my G.I doctor, to see where i go from here and what other tests and procedures needed.

I did speak to the consultant surgeon who did the test and he said no hernia, no ulcers, no indication of and malignancies or other disease. The only thing he mentioned was that I had a large stomach, I have no idea if this is significant.

I have also had a recent ultrasound of my Liver, intestines and kidneys, all normal apart from fatty liver.

Numerous bloods have been taken, all normal. I have been examined by a couple of GI Drs and again nothing found.

I have had an MRI and CT brain scan, again nothing found (unrelated)

I am not on ANY meds.

So has any one got ideas about which tests I need doing next,

Thank you,

Ianj

  • have you had a colonoscopy? I would highly suggest thatThe last colonscopy I had was about 5 years ago, all was clear then no polyps even which is a good sign apparently. Yes maybe I could do with another one, they can be risky as 1 in 800 scopes can end with a colon rupture which can be very bad.I do not really have any indication of colon problems, no diarrhoea or constipation to mention or pain or blood that I have noticed.I am still waiting to hear back from my GI doctor to see what happens now, my GP has said nothing so far.How are things going with you James, did you get any results yourself and have your symptoms settled down yet?The whole nausea thing is the pits isn't it, I don't know if your Drs are any better where you live but to be honest I never expected the process of getting a diagnosis would be so difficult.Ian

  • yes the nausea is a really bad part of all this. I had a upper GI series they only checked my small intestinse they said everything looked good, all my blood work has came back normal. I just wish they would refer me to a GI doctor but it seems that they dont want to do that, and with my insurance I cant see one inless i have a referal.
