Hello, and I am pleased to help, use of my answers are for educational purposes only.
What is your height and weight?
height is 5'2" and 200lbs
have you always been this weight?
no. up until I was 21 I was very thin. never over 105lbs. my weight has steadily gone up since then
What are you doing to treat the PCOS and endometriosis
I have an IUD so i no longer get my periods so I don't have any pain from the endo or pcos, so no treatment
So the pain is all in the upper right quandrant, correct?
Have you discussed removing your gallbladder even though all the test is negative?
yes. I saw a general surgeon a few months ago but she was not willing to do that based on the tests she ran. she didn't want to do surgery unneccissarily
okay - but that was only one opinion
And, many times you might not have a 'Typical' presentation.
and removing the gallbladder laparoscopically is quite easy and honestly it might allow you to heal.
Also, weight in of itself can cause you to have a lot of pain given your situation?
i have been to my GP, my OB/GYN and a gastroenterologist and all of them have made me feel like i am crazy. i thought it might be possible that is was endo since I was pregnant at the time of onset. my last laparoscopy 8 years ago showed my abdomen filled with adhesions
so maybe I should talk to another surgeon?
Well that makes sense to have adhesions - and this could very well be due to Endomtriosis, but this could be due to an infection that you might had and then your abdomen essentially caused a 'fight' with an infection and hence you got this scared in pelvis and abdomen.
So you might want to see if a combination of a General surgeon and a Gynecologist-Oncologist might join together to get you treated.
would that have showed up on a ct? the surgeon said that since no adhesions showed there must not be any but I always thought that they were sometimes not visible in scans
Scar tissue can not show in any Scan.
So a Laparoscopy should be done.
ok. thanks. i think I will try to see another doctor
I think that would benefit you tremendously
I wish you the best.
And, Gynecologists Oncologist can really help you
But the general surgeon will still need to remove the gallbladder since this is a signal to your husband.
sorry - I meant to say
the general surgeon will need to remove the gallbladder as a gynecologist oncologist does not do this surgery
But they can both be scrubed in together - each doing their own piece of the surgery
I hope that makes more sense
ok thank you
