Hiccups, Diarrhea, Left Side Abdominal pain, Cervical Cancer, Melanoma
I'm hoping someone can help me. We are Americans stationed in Norway (husband is retired USAF currently working for NATO). I've had cancer twice. For the last 6 months I've started to have some pretty violent hiccups. It started out once a day every other week or so. I'm now up to several minutes just about every day. I've had bouts of diarrhea here and there but it's been pretty much all the time since August 27th (when I'm leaving home and taking Imodium I'm okay for maybe 24 hours) with pain in my left lower abdomen that is more and more frequent. Norway has socialized medicine so I'm spending more and more money out of pocket trying to figure out what is going on. I had a colonoscopy last week and the results were diverticular disease (doctor said there were more pockets then he had previously seen). Since I'm paying out of pocket for just about every test, I tell the doctor what I would like for him to do and he says okay. Other things … my white count, red count, hemoglobin, Hemocrit, Alkaline Phosphatase, Globulin, MCHC, Abs Lymphocytes were low in August and now my T3 is low as well. Does this ring any bells for anyone? Thank you for taking time to respond!
