So, I've been constipated for a little over a month. Last week my GI ordered an x-ray to make sure there were no obstructions.
I go today to get the x-ray and ask the technician if I need to stay while the doctor or radiologist or whoever reads the x-rays. She said if she saw anything "alarming" she would let the doctor know right away.
So after she takes the first x-ray, she comes back and asks if I have ever had abdominal surgery. I told her about my bowel resection, like 7 years ago. She then asks if they left a pin inside of me?!?!?
I told her I knew nothing of any pins and I have had lots of x-rays since my resection and noone has ever mentioned any pins being inside of me.
She just shrugged and said it was probably nothing. BUT the site of this alleged "pin" is the same area where I've been having swelling and pain.
What am I supposed to do?!? I don't see the doctor again until next Friday. I can't wait a week, driving myself crazy wondering what is going on!!
