Pain on left side mid quadrant don't know what it is

I have been having pain on the left side mid quadrant for almost 2 years and radiates up and down. It is mild and sometimes is moderate. Don't know what it is. Have anyone experience this ? Please my doctor wants to do an exploratory procedure and don't want to do Ct or MRI

    Could be IBS if your bowel habits have changed, if you are intolerant to certain foods, have temporary relief after a bowel movement or stress sets it off.  IBS can be mild, moderate or severe What exploratory procedure does you doctor want to do and why does he/she not want to do a CT/MRI?

      No they are doing a abdominal ultrasound. I suggest them imaging to make sure something in there. They don't know what kind of pain so u told them no surgerie until they find out . I'm scare of the worse.

      On the positive side, nothing may be found which would suggest you have nothing serious going on. If you don't want exploratory surgery, push for an MRI or CT.  These scans would show up any problems.  Perhaps see someone else if you are not satisfied.
