Thanks for the advice - glad I had a CT

I wrote several days ago with a diagnosis my doc gave as diverticulitis. I didn't feel any better, so I went back yesterday and insisted on a CT. I appreciate the advice I received from posters here.

The diagnosis is epiploic appendagitis. My doc failed to call me this morning so I went and got the report myself. The doc closes early on Friday, so I assume I wasn't that important. There was also a note on the report of a prominent lymph node or mass on my lung. So I will talk to her about that too.
If I didn't get the report today I would have been wondering all weekend.
