Is it my ulcers that are hurting my stomach

Is it my ulcers that are hurting my stomach
Well, tell me more about the pain.
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
It feels like my stomach is on fire. It has gotten Immensly worse since the scope
Did the cocktail they gave you at the ER help at all, even if only for a short time?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
No it didnt help any
Then it isn't from the ulcers or the gastritis
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
Then from what
Can't be sure like I told you before. Crohn's could cause the pain and be unaffected by the cocktail. Pancreatitis could do it too.
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
I feel like crap
Wish I could help with that, but I can't
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
Do you believe me? That the pain is that bad
Yes I believe you. By chance did the ER check your amylase and lipase levels?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
No. The np did today
And are the results back?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
I havent seen her yet. Still waiting for thr ct
I guess I'm confused--if you didn't see her how did she run the lipase and amylase?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
She ordered lab and ct b4 appt. so shed have results
Well, it could be pancreatitis and in that case the ct might show an enlarged pancreas
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
Im freezing cold
What's your temp?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
Normal
Could be anemia then. When's the ct?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
Labs look fine besides my calciums low. Ct showed a small amount of free fluid in my pelvis
Then I really can't tell you what's causing the pain
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
I think they think its all in my heas
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
Why do you suppose my calciums low still?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
I need you. I had blood in my stool again. It was maroonish and jelly like
And you talked to Dr. Thomas about that.
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
Thats cuz you werent here. Whats your thoughts on the situation
What did the GI say about the blood in your stool?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
He told the np and more blood in my pee, stool, or urine i need to get checked out. The first time it happened tonight i called the NP and she told me to go to the er but then she said see if it happens again. And it did. But i dont think its anything to worry about
But what did he tell you about where the blood was coming from?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
He didnt. And none of my ulcers were bleeding
And you didn't at least ask him where it was coming from?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
I havent seen MY gi dr. The dr who did my scope just told me breifly that i had ulcers, thats all i remember. And the np didnt say anything
OK--you still have some blood in your stool but what do you want me to say about it?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
Do i need to go to the er? The gi dr said yes
What GI doctor?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
My gi dr. The np said that he said it
Then you need to go. And please don't try to discuss this and ask me for any reasons why you shouldn't--if your own doctor gives you an order like that, I am never going to tell you not to follow that order
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
What will the er do that wasnt already done today
I specifically told you not to try doing that. Sorry but if you say anything more next time besides you're going to the ER, I'll opt out
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
Ill go to the er. The gi dr put me back on carafate
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
You cannot opt out when i need you
