    Well I saw the specialist at Shands & she believed carcinoid. I just had another endoscopy there & exploratory surgery the next day. This was 3 days ago...They didn't find anything! After the surgery I found out the only looked at my small intestine. They didn't look at anything else! I had a colonoscopy done there 2 months ago that produced a polyp...I didn't have the polyp a year ago when I had a colonoscop...

            Thanks Lydia! Carcinoid is so confusing & frustrating...I will definitely let you know anything I find out. We all need to be there for one another since so few doctors see it or know much about it. I hope you are feeling better these days. I have my good & bad...it's like an emotional & physical roller coaster. Hang in there & I'll be praying for you! Stephanie

I have all of the symptoms of carcinoid...diarrhea for 8 years now...flushing that turns my ears, face & chest bright red & is so hot!...night sweats, abdominal pain, weakness/fatigue. Also lots of weight gain...does anybody experience weight gain or inability to lose weight??? Anyw...

They have ruled out so many things. I started putting on rapid weight in a matter of 2-4 years...I put on 113 lbs. with ...
