Thankyou sqad .. I know the feeling.! ok my daughter said they did her scan on her under the ribs and a polyp was there and since she first had it scanned it hasnt got any smaller or bigger... she does still get a pain in her chest area just under above her chest bone from time to time which the doctor told her was most likely caused through stress. every time that happens she thinks her lung is going to collapse again but there is no breathlessness with it and it eases off.
Good morning lilac..........assuming the polyp is in the gall bladder, then it may not have anything to do with her symptoms as they are often totally symptomless. However, they may cause, on occasions, abdominal pain..a sort of " colic". I have never known a polyp obstruct blood flow, but anything can happen in the practice of medicine....;-).
Hi sqad,,,thinking back this is just something they picked up after her her xray she had after her collapsed lung the first time a year before... Someone rechecked her xray and phoned to say she needed to go in again this year just gone..just to get it checked... She had a scan this time and they said it had stayed the same size no bigger or smaller...so it was ok.. But then she has received this letter to ask her to go for the Liver Hepatobilary contrast... hope that has made it clearer .. Happy New Year Brenda x
