When it rains, it pours. I got my CT Scan results back.
There is mild soft tissue stranding in the root of the mesentery extending into the right
lower quadrant. There are mildly enlarged lymph nodes. Findings may related to
mesenteritis. Other infectious, inflammatory, or neoplastic etiologies cannot be
I do not clearly demarcate the appendix but there is no obvious evidence of acute
appendicitis. There is some nonspecific mesenteric mesenteric stranding but no obvious
focal large appendix is identified.
Clinical correlation is suggested. The etiology of the mesenteric and right lower
quadrant stranding is unclear. This may be inflammatory, infectious, or even neoplastic
in etiology. Findings may merely relate to mesenteric right is, but given the mildly
enlarged lymph nodes CT follow-up would appear warranted. I cannot completely exclude
appendicitis but no large appendix is identified. Findings are related to appendicitis.
Follow-up CT would be warranted to reevaluate this area.
I guess go big or go home....LOL...
