Hello everyone,
 
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?
 
Thanks
Stef

Ugh I called the surgeon that was on call, my dr is on vacation this week. I noticed that the area where I had that localized infection is swollen and red again. He told me to call the office tomorrow and have one of the Doctors that are there tomorrow to look at it. If you tap on it it sounds hollow, its purplish and even my hubby said it appears swollen (and he typically cant even tell when my joints are swollen). It is in that area where my pain is. I scratched the area cuz it is all dry flaky skin and one area where I scratched is now oozing a thin yellowish liquid. NOt much is coming out though, I think they are going to have to lance it :( I was at the dr just the other day and it wasnt swollen or anything like that.

I am sick of all of this already
