Abdominal pain
JessicaH777 posted:
Hi! I have had upper left abdominal pain do the last few years. It feels like it goes thru to my upper back too. I have had an endoscopy and colonoscopy. Both were normal. I had pancreatitis about 16 years ago. I thought that maybe it was that again but the drs say no. Any ideas what it could be? The drs are now thinking IBS and scar tissue. I also still have neck and shoulder pain from a car accident 5 years ago. Lots of pain all the time in my left shoulder. Ice helps a little but still in pain all the time.

I had a Ct scan for my abdominal pain. This was in the report, does anyone know what it means? Th dr just said the Ct scan was normal and didn't go into detail. FINDINGS: ?Bibasilar linear opacities, likely atelectasis. ?Heart size normal. ?Incidental note is made of prominent opacification of a left anterior chest wall vein as well as bilateral internal mammary veins.

Thanks for your help.

It is best to discuss these findings with the doctor that ordered the test. He presumably has examined you and can put together the two things appropriately.

Take care, Annette
