tonight my stomach is so much more swollen I cannot see , feel my belly button.it is still hard and very lumpy.it is about 6 months since I told my gp (and rheumatologist in november)that I had had a cough fro 3-4 weeks and it wasn't going away and that I had lost weight on my back,face,arms and legs yet this would not show on scales cos of increase in abdominal weight.both these have not been acknowledged.why do they say see A Dr if you have had a cough for more than 3 weeks and lost weight suddenly?
i have received mixed views on whether or not my problem is just gallstones. a cyst or a tumour. my friend next door has recently lost a friend to cancer which the doctors/scans did not pick up and another told her that doctors had removed a cyst weighing 22lbs that her doctor did not diagnose nor did scans show it. Do I tell my doctor that it can happen that cysts don't show on scans,( I have already showed him articles and stories of people who have had such cysts).
i believe my problems started in sept 2011 when everything got a lot worse and as I was only diagnosed with gallstones in january this year by a private clinic.the question i have is why didn't my DR test for gallstones ?for the last 18 months + it is like they haven't listened to me or taken me seriously..
one of my dogs is acting totally out of character this last week and my older dog has started to sleep on my bed every night and cuddle up close -something he didn't usually do-not often anyway. they both hate me leaving them so I do believe they sense something is amiss.
