Did you have a ct scan of your abdomen?

And is there a lump under your belly button?

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Upper abdomen gets very bloated

Can you please answer my questions though--

Have you had a ct of your abdomen?

Any change in bowel movements?

Any lump under your belly button?

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
I think there is a slight lump under my belly button. It oozed a lot after surgery. I did have a Ct scan when I was having the upper abdomen pain. My bowel movements are irregular and very thin

And what did the ER doctor have to say about this--why the GI referral?

my last visit on Friday evening they didn't do any tests because my tests from April didn't show anything
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
In April they did the Ct scan, ultrasound if my gallbladder and a chest X-ray

But what was the presumptive diagnosis on Friday?

Hello?

Sorry for the delay

Were you screened for an H pylori bacterial stomach infection?

Ask Your Own Medical Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Blood work?

No, that would take a stool culture.

Ask Your Own Medical Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
No I was not

OK

Sorry for all the questions, but I think that's your problem

That infection can cause the symptoms you've been having

You need to be screened for that with a stool culture and it's easily eradicated with a course of oral antibiotics

Please let me know if you need any more information

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
