You were fortunate to have a doctor admit not knowing how to treat but willing to refer to someone who does. I went for seven years before someone diagnosed my Carcinoid cancer which was the underlying disease of my MP.

I appreciate this post. I get frequent pain in liver area below right rib. Don’t recall any specialist mentioning SOD. I have an enlarged fatty liver and gall bladder removed about 40 years ago. Thanks for something I can ask a doctor about.

To my knowledge a hospital must treat you if you go to ER. Otherwise try VSL probiotic and stay on it. Research probiotic foods and avoid sugary foods and gluten. Try any calming activity you can. I feel for you and have a brother without insurance having moved to another state. We need insurance in America to cover these situations.

Oct 9, 2018 · info AND TIPS ABOUT GOING TO mayo in Rochester without an appt in Visiting Mayo Clinic

Best to have appt. drs there are great about working with your schedule but they need to know
Problem and history of tests, what other doctors have been seen. They want CDs of your imaging when you arrive which you take to their download station. They really are wonderful there but see many patients and you should make an appt. fax a one-page letter with important info and tell them your availability. When you are a Mayo patient some airlines don’t charge a change of itinerary fee. Expect a 10 day stay at Mayo in Rochester, MN for them to schedule tests. Good luck.
