Since April my lower left abdomen causes me a weird pulsing feeling & Pain after eating. Anyway I went to the ER where they Xray’d, IV’d, CT Scanned with contrast, diagnosed me with Colitis, prescribed Anti Biotics, recommended the BRAT diet, & sent me on my way.
Long story short, I finished the AB’s & the flare up still comes & goes routinely. I’ve been watching my diet carefully but still get that throbbing sensation & pulsing pain after eating.
Both the Constipation & Diarrhea are like a revolving door & my stool changed to a Bristol Chart Type 5 consistency lately.
What I’m getting at, is how accurate are CT scans at detecting if there is a blockage or a type of Colon Cancer?
Would the Doctor be aware of it seeing the CT Scan?
Any experience with this type of procedure & what the test shows would provide either preparation or peace of mind & be greatly valued.
