I went to see the G.I. Specialist. He is sending me for tests but seems to think I may have Gall Stones. I came home and researched the symptoms for Gall stones. I don't agree. The pain I have starts right below my throat and continues down through my abdomen. My symptoms conflicts with the Gall stone symptoms listed.

If you have symptoms, you most likely will have mild pain in the pit of your stomach or in the upper right part of your belly. Pain may spread to your right upper back or shoulder blade area. Sometimes the pain is more severe. It may be steady, or it may come and go. Or it may get worse when you eat. ( I found this at Web Md)

Whatever it is I just wanted taken care of so I can get a Lap band. But I don't want to go through a bunch of unnecessary of junk just because a Doctor looks at Me and sees a FAT person and immediately diagnosis me for a certain disease. I hate when Doctors can't look past me being Obese to see any other reason for a illness. Its really frustrating.

I'm having a ultrasound to see if I really do have Gallstones Monday morning. I will let you know!
