Hebbie Posted October 27, 2004 Share Posted October 27, 2004 Well....because it's ALWAYS something.... My parents are on vacation this week in Vegas. Having a great old time, until my mom ended up in excrutiating abdomenal pain that radiated up to her breast bone and she had a hard time taking deep breaths......long story short, she ended up in an Ambulance, lights blaring down the Vegas Strip, to the emergency room. She threw up a few times, and finally the pain meds kicked in and she felt a little better. They did a chest x-ray, which was fine, and an abdomonal x-ray....which was followed up by an abdomonal CT Scan. What she told me the next day was that they THINK it may have been food poisoning. What she told me last night is that the abdomonal x-ray and CT Scan show a "spot" on her liver. Which they think "could" be a cyst. But they honestly didn't know what it was. The emergency room doc recommended that she have a biopsy when she gets home. I cannot accept that this could possibly be anything other than a cyst, a fat deposit, or some other harmless bit of nothing. This is my MOM. My family has enough crap to deal with from my issues, and shes the one that holds us all together. So. Assuming that this is a whole lot of nothing, who does she see to confirm that? What type of doctor would she follow up with when returning from her trip? They gave her all of her x-rays/scans to bring home. Where does she go from here?
