I got home from the doctor’s about an hour ago. He thinks that it might be my gallbladder that is acting up. However, my CT and ultrasounds were completely normal. So he is sending me for a HIDA scan on Monday. That is a nuclear study to test my liver and gallbladder to see how they are functioning. He also wants to send me for a emptying study (not sure real name for it) later on to see how my stomach is functioning.
At the moment, I am only allowed a very limited amount of foods. Tonight for dinner I got beef broth with some bread. It all has to be bland and easily digestible. The doctor said that my electrolytes are off so I need to make sure that I get sugar and salt at every meal to help balance them. He said that Gatorade and some of those other drinks like that might be a little too acidic for my system right now. Basically he said broths with salt in them, bread with jam, and tea with sugar. This is going to make for a real wonderful weekend. Bleh!!
