Let me start from the beginning. I went to my GP for rib pain( November), he did the Murphy test for Gallbladder and it was positive, so I was sent for a ultrasound and HIDA scan which both came out negative for Gallbladder, then I had a CT with contrast (important info here, I did it at a small town hospital, less than 7000 residents). The CT showed no Gallbladder problems but my GP still thought I was having Gallbladder issues and sent me to a surgeon who said no way I bet you have an ulcer, did an endoscope and there was a big nasty ulcer. But I kept having this rib pain, the surgeon called me a month (mid January) later to see how I was doing (we have a friend in common so that helped) and he sent me to a gastro Doctor who had me do a CT scan with contrast and Barium and blood work,(done at a bigger hospital in a bigger city with better CT scanner) I did this yesterday and got the results in today. The tumor as I said is benign and the Doctor is sending me to a thoracic Doctor and I go from there. I will keep you updated. Be diligent, its your body not there's so push! BTW: I wear a tens unit I got at Walmart and it helps mask the pain.
