I informed my surgeon of my tenderness in my belly, I do not feel it is CD related and after the Tx I have had for my joints etc he also believes it isnt CD. I am going to do the C diff test (have to collect another sample since the dumb person gave my mom the wrong containers for it...she works in pathology at the hospital). Last night the pain is still there but it kind of changed location a little and severity. The skin itslef is very tender even hurts to dry off after my shower, and if my clothing touches the area. the pain is strait across my belly where as before it was just the left side. It feels like a pulled muscle which I know it isnt. I also had a temp of 100.1 this morning but I had my tetanus booster for my new job on Friday and that can cause a fever up to 100.4
I plan on calling the colorectal surgeon tomorrow and inform him of the change (I saw him Wed last week). He mentioned if the C diff comes back negative rather than an 18th CT scan this year he would send me for an MRI. I have had MRIs before but never of my belly. Do you drink anything for the belly one as in contrast? Is it able to see if there is a perforation, abscess or adhesions?
