.....took him to the ER today per our PCP's instructions due to repeated bouts of N/V and right upper back pain---classic gallbladder symptoms. Turns out he does have cholecystitis, but that's not his primary concern: he also has unspecified "tumors" on his liver, and Lord knows what kind they are.
He's going in for a contrast CT tonight and probable surgery tomorrow. To say the least, I am terrified
and I'm asking for your prayers and good thoughts for him.
He's been so healthy all his life.......he has the lab work and blood pressure of a teenager, hardly takes any medications, exercises every day, etc. He started losing weight a few months ago, nothing particularly concerning given the fact that he was considerably overweight and neither of us eats the way we used to. But in light of today's events, it may have been a warning, and it just kills me to think I may have missed something that should've been caught sooner!!!
Thank you in advance for your help. I'll keep you posted.
