I forgot to mention that I've had dull pain under the right rib for about 20 years on and off. It happens once a month or every other month and lasts from a few hours to a week. It usually starts 2 hours after eating and gets worse evety time I eat. It feels like the food is stuck in the stomach and not going anywhere. It gets worse after eating. I had ultrasound about 10 years ago and the gallbludder was normal. Is nuclear scan that you suggest different from the ultrasound? I started loosing weight for last 5-7 years, and about a year ago nausea and a fatigue was added, but no blood in the stool. Could that still be any cancer development ?
Is nuclear scan different than the abdominal ultrasound? I am asking because I have already scheduled the ultrasound. What test should be done first: endoscopy or the nuclear scan ? thanks
