    Just curious...I had my appt with the German Endo this past week and he also did an ultrasound on my neck (thyroid, I'm sure) and up on my abdomen (sp?) between my ribs.

    My question is, what's he looking for in that area?

    Thanks all....

    If hes an endo hes probably looking at your pancreas or adrenal glands. Those fall under their jurisdiction. Although typically an abdominal ultrasound looks at the liver/spleen/stomach/aorta/etc... Those are my thoughts...

    He was looking up at the place where the ribs almost meet in the upper abdomen. Almost trying to get under the ribs too.
