Ok Elwyn--just one last question--are you saying the doctors haven't given you any idea at all as to what the problem might be?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

they have not told us exactly what the problem is only the cysts do not seem

to be getting worse

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 3 years ago.
OK Elwyn. I can only give you my thoughts here and we can continue after this if you'd like. She needs the scopings and a screen for H pylori since this could be a peptic ulcer problem or an inflammatory bowel condition like ulcerative colitis. Once the diagnosis is made, there are specific medications for these conditions that will resolve her problem
