Customer Question
I recently had a...

I recently had a CT scan done as I have had a pancreatic cyst removed and my liver measured 18.2 cm. I am female, is that abnormal?

Doctor's Assistant: What are all the symptoms you're experiencing (e.g. loss of appetite, fever, rash)?

No rash or fever but I am experiencing pain in my upper right quadrant, mostly under the breast and nausea

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you had the pain? What seems to make the pain better or worse?

I have had it for 5 or so weeks. X-rays showed no abnormality in the rib area. I have pain all day that is bothersome but coughing, sneezing and laying down bothers me a lot. It does interrupt my sleep

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

I have had surgery on my pancreas, spleen removed and a small bowel resection all in the last 2 years. Nothing else though

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.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
