Hello, I haven't posted in a while. Up until about 2 weeks ago my hypochondria was pretty much in check, it's only until I started with this symptom that everything went down hill. My doctor doesn't seem to care and says that it is unlikely but has been pretty rude. I don't understand I've tried my best to not call everyday, I've only called to ask him to refill my Xanax, which hadn't been filled for about a year, and my blood work. I'll start from the beginning of this:
About two weeks ago I came to work on Friday excited about the weekend, it was my birthday weekend and had plans to go to dinner with family and friends. I went through my morning routine here at work by going to the bathroom, typically I don't look down when I finish my business but this morning for some reason I did. I was surprised to see that my bowel movement was completely white. I couldn't believe what I was seeing, I had never even heard you could have white bowel movements. After I went to the bathroom my curiosity got the best of me, I googled the white bowel movement and what stood out was pancreatic cancer. After that time it hasn't happened again but because of my anxiety I went to the doctor to get checked, it was the following Wednesday when I went to see my GP. The doctor told me it wasn't anything to worry about because I had no other symptoms and the occurrence was only once. He ran some blood work and told me it would take a week to get the results. He would also be ordering a CT scan to be safe. He advised that the insurance company takes a week to accept or deny and that I would be having a letter to confirm.
After that I started having loose yellow stools, my anxiety reached a max and since I suffer from GERD my stomach began to hurt. I actually made the mistake to start drinking again during the day to calm my anxiety. But It only made my stomach worse. I hope that's why my stools have been yellow and loose. I only have eaten about once a day and are loosing weight pretty fast. Again the yellow acidic stool only confirmed my pancreatic cancer diagnosis.
Well a week went by and I called to check on the blood work, the nurse told me that the results were in and that I had high cholesterol and triglycerides. I asked her about my liver and she said "oh yeah that too, your liver showed abnormalities." I started to freak out because I had read a guy who had pancreatic cancer showed high liver enzymes in his blood work and no other symptoms. I missed work 2 days, finally Friday I called back and asked the nurse if she could ask the doctor to refill my Xanax because I couldn't sleep at night. She called me back saying that the doctor was going to refer me to a neurologist because I might have a condition. I was very shocked and confused because I have known this doctor for many years and never had he made me feel like this before. I am very confused at what's going on, all I wanted was relief at night to be able to sleep so I can function the next day. I have an appointment with him tomorrow to discuss the blood work, does this sound like pancreatic cancer? Should I discuss how I feel about how I was treated? Thanks in advance for your help!!!
