One Star

My husband had CT scan in ER before hospitalizing for cholecystectomy, and it showed white matter on my husband's stomach. During the surgery the surgeon didn't see anything. After that my husband was referred to this doctor for an endoscopy. Endoscopy showed H.Pylori but no signs of any "white something" on my husband's stomach. After that Dr. Alva suggested some sort of X Ray, that had to be done in Harlingen and if that didn't help then to have another surgery to find out what that thing is (?). My husband said that there would be easier to do another CT scan, because he remembered that he didn't remove the heating pad from his back before the procedure and if it was possible for that to affect the CT scan result, but Dr. Alva said that he doesn't doubt CT scan person professionalism. My husband went to our family doctor and he ordered another CT scan. There was nothing on that second CT scan of course.
