HI, Thanks for your question. My name is Dr Hasan and I am here to help you today. I will be happy to help you with your follow-up questions also. I need few details.
Does he has any pain on right side just below rib cage?
Any pain at right shoulder tip?
Is he on any medications or any diagnosed medical problem?
Loose stool, constipation, nausea, vomiting?
I was thinking gall stones, but not sure
no, just grey colored stoll
Yes that is what i am thinking but i am trying to figure it out.
Does that pain radiated to back?
Does he still has pain?
would they do an U/S and see them ?
No not to the back, he is asleep right now, he was up all night
He took some Motrin and he said the pain is better then in the night
Grey stool could mean a block bile duct, right ?
By grey stool do you men clay colored stool or like whitish stool
Yes grey could mean bile duct obstruction secondary to something like stone in the gall bladder.
Whitish stool means the same.
would blood work show this ?
Instead of waiting for appointment he should go to ER because he needs immediate assessment.
what about diverticulitis, his dad haa that
No they will do an ultrasound.
or may go for a CT scan.
Yes I agree with you , but he won't go. Men are so stubborn
Diverticulitis should present with pain in lower abdomen mostly.
with diarrhea or sometime constipation.
ok, that is what I thought
well I will see when he wakes up, how he is
Well my advise is to go to ER but suppose if he doesn't go then ask him to avoid any fatty meal till he visit doctor.
ok, thank you very much
Instead of motrin prefer tylenol.
ok will do that also
