Scheduled for a HIDA scan in 2 days to be sure, although I feel that'll be negative. I just want to know where to go next with this. I'm desperate to make it stop. Thank you for your quick response.

This was very helpful. Thanks! I think that's probably a better take than the last md as I noticed some black on one toenail. My immune system is not strong so I'm going in for assistance. Thank you!
