Didn't know where to post this, ATS, BTS, nowhere. . . .
But if it'll help someone else along the way, then might as well.
Two weeks ago I started having abdominal issues. Bloating, nausea, swelling in different places.
Last week finally went to the doc because the pain was getting real bad.
I got refered to a gut doc. (GI specialist) who took a look at me.
Blood tests last week. Untrasound on tuesday (the 8th) morning. On tuesday afternoon, an "exploratory" procedure.
Problem is in my stomach, gall bladder, pancreas, spleen, liver. One or all of the above.
My wife has spent the last few days sobbing because she thinks cancer (she's a nurse) I think something silly like gall stones, or an *itis*
Will know next week. Will be an interesting ride regardless. I have never been majorly ill in my life. Have had major surgeries before but that was
due to a real bad parachute landing a few years ago when I was active duty.
I've good insurance. That's not a problem. Even have good life insurance so my family would be taken care of if it is something real rotten.
If it's nothing, it'll be a short thread. If it's something else, well, let this be my journal to teach others what they might expect if they
should have something like this happen.
Be talking to ya'
