Re: left dull ache in lower abdomen

I was told exactly the same thing - "thickening of the bowel wall on left upper quadrant" following an ultrasound. I was sent to a general surgeon who did a colonoscopy, and it revealed no problems - well, except for the fact that it showed I have a twisty colon. So she sent me for a cat scan which showed possible slight inflammation on the outside of the colon. So now she is sending me to a gastroenterologist (my 3rd), who I see later today.

What else did they say to you about the cat scan results? Any insight as to causes, treatments, etc.? Please keep me posted.

Re: left dull ache in lower abdomen

Thanks so much for replying to me . The CT Scan doesn't say anything specific - It ruled out diverticulitis , mentions maybe colitis but until the Colonoscopy & Endoscopy are done the doctors will not commit to saying anything specific - you know how they love to schedule you for tests and will not tell you anything to allay your worst fears until then so its wait and worry . I am scheduled for 2/29 and this has been going on since early December . I will say one thing - Metamucil is the best . My problem was constipation prior to trying to eat more fiber and taking 2 tsps. of Metamucil daily . I recommend it highly .
I hope your problems get resolved soon.

Margie
Thanks again
