I have been fighting abdominal pain and nausea since February. My 1st ER visit was March 18th. I was told I had an ulcer. April 8th was the 22nd ER visit,as the pain was out of control. Once again, more pain meds and sent me home. I suffered horribly until Monday the 105th when I was taken back to the ER. Unable to all water without vomitting. This time a 22nd CT was done that showed a complete blockage in my duodenum. I had an NG tube inserted to drain my stomach and admitted. 3 scopes later and they couldn't decide if I did or did not have cancer or how to treat me. 9 days later I was transferred to Spokane Sacred Heart to meet my surgeon. Dr Mejia. He was quickly decided I needed surgery soon.
