Pancreatitis ultrasound pictures

Common Questions and Answers about Pancreatitis ultrasound pictures


Avatar n tn 9 months ago after a 6 hour car ride (again with the sitting) I got severe diarrhea but this was followed by chronic abdominal pain which to this day has not subsided. With my history Gi Doc suspected chronic pancreatitis but... ultrasound, bloodwork for Amalyse lipase, CT with contrast, then finally an MRCP were all clear. 4 years ago I had an upper GI (where they put the camera down your throat not sure what it is called).
Avatar f tn Pancreatitis is probably the deadliest complication of gallbladder disease. In the US, more than 95% of the pancreatitis is caused by either alcohol or gallstones. The fact that you had pancreatitis in the absence of alcohol and a history of any abnormality on ultrasound would indicate a cholecystectomy.
Avatar n tn Sometimes a KUB may reveal a calcified kidney stone that has passed into the ureter and resulted in referred abdominal pain or calcifications in the pancreas that suggests chronic pancreatitis. Radiographic studies. Abdominal ultrasound is useful in diagnosing gallstones, cholecystitis appendicitis, or ruptured ovarian cysts as the cause of the pain.
Avatar f tn Surgical procedures: Cesarean 2013 Cesarean 2014 Gallbladder removal/umbilical hernia repair/pancreatitis 2015 (laparoscopic) Cesarean & Tubal Ligation 2016 D & C due to left over products 15 weeks after Cesarean After my gall bladder, and progressively worse third cesarean I experienced inability to have a bowel movement ranging anywhere from 1-2.5 weeks at a time.
Avatar n tn Finally I had a ultrasound done, and it said I have 3 cyst in my biliary ducts. What do they do for this. I am so sick to my stomach most of the time. I have pain under my ribs that go to the bottom on my ribs. Sometimes I loose my balance, pain that goes through to my back. Is these cyst dangerous, and why am I always feeling sick. My mom had problems with her gallbladder and finally she had surgery and the surgeon said it was rotten.
Avatar f tn Instantly my stomach bloated incredibly (take a look at my pics to see before and after pictures) and I was in such severe... [More] pain I could not even walk. My mom told me it was probably just gas, but three and a half years later after EVERY single time I eat or drink ANY amount of anything my stomach bloats to the extent to where I can't even walk, I have horrible nausea and nothing seems to have worked.
Avatar m tn i was in the hospital due to constant upchuck for 2 days and continued pain in stomach all over but mostly on the right and upper right also back pain--dx as pancreatitis. now gi doc says he sees that my bile duct is clogged and my liver doesn't look right. all they keep asking is am i a drinker, i don't drink at all except an occational (one) on a holiday. just had a ton of blood work done and am going on mon. for an mri of the pancreas etc.
303684 tn?1210994676 He mentioned a pancreatitis as a possible diagnosis but said it's very difficult to diagnose. Her ultrasound pictures claimed as good with no masses or changes. And the truth is that I suspected this all along- the combo of meds made her lethargy and unfriendly. She picked up her attitude quickly and got back to being my crazy cat - running the house at 30mph :))) Oh I missed that.. Of course, I know it doesn't explain her bouts of innappetance.
Avatar n tn i have a history of gallbladder issues in my family, but my specialist only did the ultrasound at my request. i had my endoscopy yesturday and he biopcied (sp?) something. but the pictures look normal (my father has really bad pics from his endoscopy so i could compare). I think ill try the pancreatic enzymes you talked about because i think my symptoms point to pancreatitis, even if my doc doesn't think so.
Avatar n tn On Sat March 2, I woke up with a stomach ache (The night before I had indulged in a sausage hot link). By noon on Sat, I had chills and an unbleievable pain in my upper right abdomen (I thought I had the flu). Could not eat and everytime I did, the pain would get worse. On Mon Dr thought it was flu. Finally Tuesday at 4pm I had Untrasound of Gallbladder-nothing showed up. By 7 pm I was at emergency room- could not take pain any more. They put me on IV for dehydration & gave me pain killers.

1878464 tn?1320563037 I am a 42 year old male, and I have had seemly disconnected symptoms, for about 1 1/2 years now, which I hope someone my shed some light. I will be consulting my doctor again very soon but hope to get a little more information prior. I have had severe nausea, some vomiting, loose stool - those are the GI symptoms. An abdominal ultrasound was normal except the liver was "fuzzy" (doctor's words) (maybe "blurry")..
Avatar n tn One of them wanted to have an ERCM performed and we were told of the possible side effects of having this done, including pancreatitis. We got a second opinion from a very prominent gastroenterologist through a family connection and he informed us that he thought the ERCM was not necessary and that she was at a higher risk for those side effects. His recommendation was to wait for another episode and then reevaluate from there.
Avatar f tn pylori (which was found before the gallstones were). The first ultrasound showed innumerous gallstones in my gallbladder and 17% EF on HIDA scan. The second ultrasound showed no gallstones 6 months later and 64% EF on HIDA scan. I want to make sure that this is not a gallstone, so I can cross this off my list of possible causes. My gastroenterologist said it's probably air and to ask the radiologist, and the radiologist would not comment and told me to ask the gastroenterologist.
Avatar n tn Sorry to bug everyone again..but we are visiting a surgeon on Thursday for my 19 year old daughter after the GI said nothing was wrong. She had a HIDA scan 2 weeks ago..the gallbladder did not visualize well after 60 minutes, so they had to give her morphine & then her ejection fraction was calculated at 32% after an hour. The report said chronic cholecystitis as the diagnosis. No other test showed anything stones, no elevated blood levels, no hernias or ulcers, etc.
Avatar n tn The MRI showed a small abnormality to my pancreas, but not something he would think is pancreatitis. I am not at the point where I can't really eat anything. I either throw up after I eat or I have to literally force it to stay down. I burp so much after I eat something. Anything it doesn't matter what it is. The pain has come back also and is just as bad and mostly in my left upper abdomen area. I have lost over 15lbs and am still losing.
Avatar f tn He HAS been losing weight, but we believe that's due to the fact that he's been petrified to eat anything (he was also diagnosed with acute pancreatitis so when he eats something bad it acts up and causes him a lot of pain). I've done a ton of research on Cirrhosis and I am confident that I can help him change his lifestyle when that comes back confirmed, but there's not much I can do about liver cancer and the survival rate doesn't look too great. Any help would be appreciated, thank you!
Avatar n tn By the way they denied because they wanted me to have another ultrasound. In the year and a half I fought this pain I had 2 CT's,ultrasound,4EGD's, ERCP,2 gastric emptying tests, and numerous blood tests. For them to come back asking for an ultrasound. I thought that was a big waste of money. My Dr at the clinic said he'd work with me and felt this needed to get done ASAP. That was April - I still have yet to get the bill. I know its coming, but he is still fighting for me.
Avatar n tn The pain lately has been constant. I have been through the ringer of tests--ultrasound, EGD, CT, HIDA Scan, etc. and they found that my gallbladder was not functioning properly. It's functioning at 22% and the normal is 40%. I have had numerous appointments with my gastroenterologist because of this pain. This week he said he thinks the gallbladder needs to come out and he is in the process now of giving the recommendation to a surgeon. So, you are not alone.
556014 tn?1230604478 We're still waiting on the Leptospirosis and Pancreatitis and Leukemia results. Wednesday he started bleeding a bit from his nose. Then yesterday half of his eye was red and the doctor said that it was a hemorrahage. He said not to be alarmed. I have been at the hospital every morning and every night visiting and talking to the doctors and techs. Zoro still isn't eating, but yesterday he did manage to eat two small dog biscuits. He did poop yesterday, but it was black and bloody.
Avatar n tn The CT, upper and lower endoscopies and ultrasound would evaluate for most of the GI disorders (i.e. GERD, ulcers, liver disease, gallbladder, pancreatitis etc.). You can consider more specialized testing to evaluate for things like low gallbladder ejection fraction, or esophageal motility disorders. To evaluate the first condition, a HIDA scan with CCK stimulation can be done. Those with low gallbladder ejection fractions may benefit from a cholecystectomy.
800851 tn?1260346702 The problem is, I cannot tell if they are discolored with red or a darkish-yellowish. A lot of the pictures of jaundiced eyes on google look reddish too. If any of you have had experience with jaundiced eyes, your reply and detailed description of what it look like will be invaluable to me. I am too nervous to go to the doctor and have them check it out. I don't want anymore bad news.
1778046 tn?1318440702 When gas does come out it is very little and I must strain a lot to get it out. (I have pictures of my feces, unfortunately, lol, but I wont post them publically. I don't want to gross anyone out randomly). Saw the family doctor on July 21 and was ordered bloodwork (CBC, Enzymes, Liver Function) and all came back normal. I was given samples of Nexium (which I never took) and prescribed 2 Ranitidine 150mg tablets daily from the 21st-28th.
Avatar f tn so now i have to get my gallbladder checked witht he hida scan (where they put dye through your veins and take pictures of your gallbladder for 2 hrs. I went to the ER yesterday because I was bloated all weekend with stomach pains/nausuea/headaches/fatigue/pains/low fever they sent me home with antacids!!!!!!! they didnt' listen to a word I said. If someone gets back with you could you let me know?
Avatar m tn I was amazed at the pictures they have on some of the gallbladder flush websites - pictures of what apparently can come out of your gallbladder and even liver. Large stones, medium stones, hundreds or even *thousands* of little stones can be flushed over time??? When I read that and saw the pics, I just had a really hard time accepting it as being completely true.
Avatar n tn what is ercp. I too have pain in urq and had ultrasound today that showed no gallstones. wonder what will be next test.
Avatar n tn I wasn't satisied so after 3 more visits I managed to get a stronger anti acid med, blood test, urine test, stool culture, CT scan, barium xray of upper GI and ultrasound. They all came back clear except the barium xray showed I had reflux. So my big question is, I have no heartburn, no burning in my esophagus, nothing like that, I just have a really bad stomach ache in my upper stomach area, can this really all be cause by an ulcer? Sometimes it aches so much it's hard to straighten up.
Avatar f tn She said there is a problem FINALLY and realizes it is not the meds. She mentioned pancreatitis, gall bladder and the possibility of stomach not emptying properly. Has anyone had such problems after surgery? I have celiac. Is this something I should mention to the dr? She has never had symptoms of it and liquids don't even stay down. Sorry this is so long but we are both so frustrated. The packing changes are bad enough with out all the stomach issues on top of it.
