Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
Hi there. Thank you for your question. I will be helping you out with your queries
Have you had an ultrasound of the abdomen?
Any other tests that you may have had done?
Do you have any other medical problems?
Are you on any medications for anything at the present moment?
Please let me know.
I have had three endoscopy in the past the last one was two years ago and I had no ulcer then but I had inflammation, I was put on Lansoprazole for quit some time but I don't take anything now. I also had a camera up into my colon two years ago and that was fine.I had a duodenal ulcer thirty years ago (diagnosed with a barium x ray.
I am on HRT patches
Did lansoprazole help/
Yes it did, but I have never had this sharp pain before and it is in a very specific place under my right rib.
Have you had an ultrasound to rule out stones in the gallbladder?
You should have an ultrasound to rule out gallstones.
in the past when I had the endoscopy they did scan me for that but it was negative but that was almost three years ago !
I think that a fresh ultrasound should be done.
You should also continue with pantoprazole if you are already on it.
If you are not on it you should restart with pantoprazole.
ok I will go to my doctor, but I was afraid I would have to have another endoscopy
You will not have another endoscopy
It is not required
ok thank you very much
