Exclamation '98 Sport 5.9L major oil usage?

I have used 2-3 quarts of oil in the past week, about 400 miles driven. The shop claims it's not leaking They claim they done a test on intake manifold and that it's not leaking. My question is what do guys think the problem is. The shop said its probably the piston rings losing that much oil and that means engine rebuild or replacement, which do they neither. What do guys think. Truck has 164K miles on it. No check engine light on, truck seems to run good. I did have to replace both oxygen sensors and catalytic converter when first purchased the truck in December. Truck does not seem to smoke any. PCV valve and hose been replaced as well.
