The number of answers this doctor has agreed with.
A 52-year-old male asked:
Consider abdominal ultrasound - more sensitive for detection of gallstones; consider HIDA scan for ducts. Have you been checked for H pylori infection of the stomach as that can also cause pain . Would also check lipase / amylase/elastase ( pancreas ) . Would check cardiac function( as that can masquerade as GI pain) and the rare possibility of ischemic bowel / or splenic aneurysm f/u/w/MD
A 21-year-old male asked:
Have you had anoscopy or sigmoidoscopy? Follow up w/ gastroenterologist or surgeon to assess the area and determine if there are ulcers or proctitis or underlying inflammatory bowel disease. Discuss use of steroid suppositories to facilitate healing. f/u/ w/ MD https://my.clevelandclinic.org/health/diseases/13177-anal-fissures
A 22-year-old female asked:
How was the AIP diagnosis made? Did they take blood samples and antibody levels ? ERCP? Have you been treated for autoimmune pancreatitis? if you have been treated the fecal elastase test can revert to normal because the inflammation is quiescent. Discuss w/ GI if this is AIP or chronic pancreatitis from sludge see N Engl J Med 1992; 326:589-593 or other cause such as alcohol/abnormal duct
