I keep reading stories online how nothings wrong with a person, and the person has to go to a few more doctors to actually figure out whats wrong with them, when i went to my appointment my i was so scared of stomach cancer that the nurse actually said you have to get barretts esophagus just to have stomach cancer. To me that made no sense, you need to have that to have cancer? what does that have to do with your stomach? My pain is in the epigastric area, when all of this happened to me 4 months ago i was pretty much spitting black tar out of my mouth it was blood, and now when i go to a doctor you're telling me nothing's there? nothing's damaged? and no cancer cells are awoken? This whole thing had a huge scare in my life so far, and the fact my epigastric area is still killing me along with my back is not making things any better. It's really hard for me to except this diagnosis because i know something happened in my stomach or in one of my organs some where, this has been the longest 4 months of my life dealing with all this crap, being depressed and scared all the time. It's not that i don't want to listen to anyone's advice, trust me i do, and i appreciate every bit of it. But something doesn't make sense here. I mean hell the guy had to take a biopsy just to tell me i had gastritis, when i went to my old doctor 6 years ago he was a trusted family friend, and he told me straight up after everything you have gastritis. This dude tells me in front of my girlfriend and my mother there's no sign of Gastritis, Ulcers, Cancer cells or infection then three weeks later i get a note in the mail saying my biopsy came back negative but i have gastritis. What sucks is i can't get another test done for awhile because my insurance won't allow it. This is why i'm really freaking out that he probably missed something, if he can't diagnose GASTRITIS by looking at it, what makes me think he can actually find cancer. I can thank my mom for finding this doctor for me.
