Monday, October 17th on the Doctor Ira Breite Show on Sirius XM 81: Doctor Radio

One of the funny (not funny ha ha, funny sad) sort of things about medicine is that people will often present to a doctor with abdominal pain, get an ultrasound, find out they have gallstones, get their gallbladder removed, and then (ha ha) still have pain. As I said, funny sad, not funny ha ha. Join me and Dr. Dr. Johnson L. Thistle of the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN who just wrote an article about it in "Clinical Gastroenterology and Hepatology."

Gallstone questions? Give us a call at 1-877-NYU DOCS!

And the digestive diseases don't end after the break! Join me for "Gastroenterology Update," where we'll talk about some of the latest news in Gastroenterology and digestive disease. Call for any questions: from polyps to heartburn to worse!

In our second hour, we are going to begin with a medical mystery. Imagine having severe symptoms, going to an emergency room, getting admitted to the hospital, having a ton of tests, and then being discharged...with no clear diagnosis. Hear Brian's Story. We will be joined by co-host on the Dr. Billy Goldberg Show Howard Greller, MD.

We'll end the show with "Ask Doctor Ira," where you can ask me any question on any medical topic at all: anything you forgot to ask your doctor (or that was a mystery to him or her) ask me!

Call us at 1`-877-NYU-DOCS

I listened to the gentleman with the history of an MI up until the second hospitalization. I never heard what he was diagnosed with. Anyone remember?
