Should I still have CT scan?

Posted , 6 users are following.

I have not yet been diagnosed with diverticulitis, but after looking online there is little to no doubt in my mind that is what I am suffering from. After intense pain for 3 days I have now been on a liquid diet for 4 days and seem to be getting much better FINALLY! 

Problem is that my CT scan isn’t for 5 more days. Should I cancel this scan? If I am not having a flare up will they even be able to see a problem?  Don’t necessarily want to spend the time & money to just be told ‘nothing can be seen, head home and wait for it to happen again’
