Well still no further ahead. Told her about the pain, where it is and such, no fever, no bloody/mucasy stool. So she really 'feels' its NOT diverticulitis, because I am not 'presenting' like I have it, other than the pain. She thinks its a hernia. I have an abdominal u/s booked for a week from now, she ordered more blood work too (just had a bunch done on Monday and she was really concerned because my hemoglobin is only 92. ) as well as urine testing. The pain was bad last night, and its still hurting. She said if it gets bad, to go back to the ER.
I would like to ask those that have it, when your having the pain, what does it feel like to you ? (mine feels like a hot knife digging into my left groin area) ..... Does the pain stop or lessen a bit when you have a BM ? (mine doesn't)..... Is there a certain position that makes it hurt more ? (mine is sitting and lying down the most, but walking too).
I actually sat in my car and cried when i left her office. She wants to rule out some things, and said she just might end up sending me back to my GI doctor (the one who does my colonoscopies). I feel like I should just call his office and make an app't to see him anyway.
