It did not go up to the neck or arm, but it did last longer than 24 hours. There was also vomiting. The pain was almost constant. After several tests and X rays the doctor said that my heart was okay and that I had an infected gall bladder and that an operation was necessary. I'm a 45-year-old married woman, 5 feet 3, weigh 112 pounds, very careful about my diet, don't eat heavy, greasy food, don't smoke or drink. Neither my husband nor I can understand how this could happen. 1 feel fine now. It is very hard for us to accept the doctor's statement. 1 would appreciate it very much if you would discuss this in your column. DEAR READER - Pain in the upper abdomen with or without vomiting is a symptom. It can be caused by many different things. That is why the doctor has to take so many tests and sometimes observe you over a period of time to find out what the real problem is. Such a pain can be caused by the heart, from gall bladder disease, pancreas disease or a host of other problems Your tests failed to show any evidence of anything but gall bladder disease. Your doctor made the logical conclusion that your pain was caused by your gall bladder. It is true that gall bladder disease is more common in overweight women, but it fan, and often does, occur in women who are thin. About one out of every five American women eventually develop gall bladder disease. Men get it too. but about 75 per cent of all cases are in women The pain of a typical acute infection of the gall bladder is more often under the edge of the right rib margin and nearby abdominal area. It is something like a red hot appendix, except that the location is higher Such an acutely infected gall bladder can rupture just as an actue appendix can Pain from gall bladder disease can also occur when a small stone passes through the bile duct. This may cause inter mittent crampy pain and it can be quite severe. \Vlie' 1 the sione has passed, and if the- e arc no other stones in the bilt- duel or other complications, the severe pain may stop. You might have passed a small stone When stones are present it is almost certain that the gall bladder is diseased. And. when the gall bladder is diseased or "non-functioning," it usually contains stones. You can have recurrent milder attacks from chronic gall bladder disease, usually causing gas and intolerance to fatty and fried foods with mild pain. As you see, gall bladder disease can cause a variety of symptoms and may even be present with no symptoms at all. These latter cases are found only by X ray studies of the gall bladder. Most doctors believe that if the patient has no other serious medical problems it is usually best to remove a diseased gall bladder or one with gall stones. The recent work on dissolving stones offers hope that when the problem is just stones that one day these patients can be treated medically and avoid the surgery, but that choice is not yet generally available.

"At first I tried imitating Ivombard's external look and mannerisms, mostly her voice. But that was superficial. She gives me the impression of being sweet on screen. I think there was more acid in her off camera "I'm searching for the same sort of quality that Dustin Hoffman found when he played Lenny Bruce." No newcomer to films, Jill appeared in "The Terminal Man," "Portnoy's Complaint" and "The Thief Who Came to Dinner." She recently played a prostitute on television in "Hustling." Jill flunked her first screen test for the Lombard role. It was touch and go whether she would lose the part to one of eight other actresses who tested. In her second test Jill wore one of Lombard's long, clinging gowns. "It was a weird sensation putting on her dress," she said. Jill, the daughter of a wealthy New York family, makes her home in Manhattan. She is a Sarah Lawrence College graduate, an intelligent sophisticate who was the longtime girlfriend of actor Al Pacino. "The more I see of Lombard's movies the more I'm convinced she was a warm, elegant woman who was available to everyone. "She was delicate and feminine. She wasn't aloof. I talked to Edith Head about Lombard. She said Carole was elegant and her reputation for using foul language was exaggerated. "I'd like to talk to more people who knew her in the old days. I don't suppose there are many of them still around. But it might be awkward calling famous people and asking them about her. "So far as I know she has no living relatives. She never did have any children." In her quest to capture the Lombard charisma, Jill is learning everything she can about Clark Gable, who will be portrayed by Jim Brolin. "I'm still looking," Jill concluded. "And when I finally find that Lombard quality you can bet it will be an impression of her, not an impersonation." He's x Curious' About Mistake BETHANY. W.Va. (UPI) CBS newsman Roger Mudd said Monday it was "curious" to him that so many American presidents made "the same mistake" on Vietnam. "I think that's an awful price to have paid to realize after a 1 or 15 year period to find out that all your presidents have been wrong, Mudd said. "Those 50,000 lives, and 300,000 bodies and $150 billion dollars, and to realize after you've done all that, and everything a country could be expected to do for another country. PHILADELPHIA (UPI) The presence of four trace elements in human blood can be measured to indicate the presence of cancer, University of Rhode Island researchers said today. Blood tests of 16 patients with diagnosed cases of advanced cancer showed abnormal levels of copper, cesium, cadmium and cobaJt, researcher Dianne D. Zdankiewicz said in a paper prepared for the American Chemical Society's national meeting. The copper level was found to be 60 per cent higher and MANN THEATRES cadmium 28 per cent higher than they were in a group of healthy subjects "Copper and cadmium are considered essential for human health. Perhaps because cancer is an uncontrolled growth, the body absorbs more of these elements to support the growth." Ms. Zdankiewicz said. Her research with Earl W Stromberg and Dr. James L Fasching of the URI department of chemistry showed levels of cobalt and cesium were down about 25 per cent in the blood of cancer patients They had no theory to explain this. The researchers said they believe variations of trace 2nd BIG WEEK! Washington Irving shot his first bear on his "Tour of the Prairies" in what was later called "Bear's Glen" near Keystone, Okla.
