    I have had no treatment or diagnosis for this stomach fullness problem and I don’t see the GI until 12/21. I sent an email to her last Weds aft to ask if there was something to do as I am no better. By Monday afternoon I had no answer. So, I called her office. She called me back at 6 PM. She went over the normal test. She noted that the gastric emptying had a caveat that I had not eaten all of the food. True. The eggs themselves were four ounces, more than I can eat in one setting. Plus 2 toast and a large water.

    She said the problem in treatment was that I had no diagnosis. She reviewed the CT scan (normal) and then wondered if I should have a CT or MRI to look at the vasculature to see if the stomach gets enough blood. She said “the only thing is those patients have pain.” I reiterated that I have no pain. I have an uncomfortable fullness that is odd and I just want it to pass. She said patients without enough blood flow have severe pain. Then she inexplicably said she was going to order that test and her office would call me to schedule it.

    I do not want the test. It is another fishing expedition. I want something that will give me hope that we will find the answer and improve my situation.

    Today I made a same day appt with my internist. He agrees with me about that test. Since I have had a cardiac cath and an abdominal -pelvic sono that show normal vessels and I do not have that pain, it is very unlikely that it will show anything.

    Instead, he thinks it is the MS dismotility scenerio. He is going to research drugs that can be used for this and get back to me tomorrow.
