Had my follow-up visit with the gastroenterologist. Biopsies were all clear (yay!). Mystery remains as to abdominal pressure and occasional runs. When he heard all the symptoms, he sent me for an immediate blood test for CA-125 cervical cancer screening and gave me a form for a pelvic scan. (I'd brought this up regarding abdominal bloating a few months ago when I went for my first Pap here and that doctor pushed around my abdomen and said it was just fat. I'm relieved to be getting tested for it.) He also included in the blood test a screen for celiac reaction although as I told him, about 75% of my diet is bread and pasta so if it turns out I'm sensitive to it I might as well just give up now! As for the hem***s, I'm supposed to drink a lot more hi, [livejournal.com profile] eackerman, add a lot more fiber to my diet including an "LSA" supplement, and he gave me a prescription for a topical cream in case I should need it but he said as long as I didn't feel they were bothering me, he didn't think we needed to do much else.

So, I can go off to Perth blithely eating dairy and garlic :->
