Very quick ultrasound appointment

Hi there, I've come to this forum for opinions because I'm a bit worried. I have had a pain under my right ribs for months and have told the doctor several times - endless blood and liver function tests - some raised Alts and other small probs but not abnormal. I've had a cholecysrectomy and two ERCPs and had a liver infection after a visit to Mexico 18 years ago. I also had a gall dtone stuck in my bile duct and a liver infection then (in 2007) On Friday I saw a doctor at a different practice who referred me for a liver scan yesterday. It's on Friday. Should I be worried that it's so quick? I don't usually panic but I feel so ropey (aching joints, nausea, tiredness) that I'm imagining all sorts. Thank you in advance.

Hi

Sorry you've felt so unwell. I would worry but try and think positive, he might have pushed you in cos you've been messed about so much. Please let us know how you go on. The waiting can be the worst. Please take care. Love and hugs Lynne xxxx

I was called to see my doctor after the ultrasound. My common bile duct and some intrahepatic ducts are dilated. Head of pancreas fine, couldn't see tail on ultrasound. I have an urgent CT scan but not an urgent referral to surgeons. Should I be relieved? 😂😊😊
