    Had Stomach and Pelvic CT Scan...so scared!

    Hi everyone...thanks for reading my post. Within the past year I've had some stressful times and medical conditions. My latest has been a bout with constipation, bloating, gas, pain in lower left side, anxiety and depression. I have been battling stomach problems since I can remember. Had all kinds of blood work done and ultrasounds within the course of the year and all was clear but still battling the above symptoms. Since my doctor was not in his assistant saw me and ordered a stomach and pelvic CT scan which I had yesterday. Was hesitant due to radiation but this was the only way to get accurate answers of what's going on inside. With already having high anxiety and depression, waiting for the results has me sick to my stomach and beside myself. My friends are trying to comfort me saying that it's probably IBS but of course I don't believe them and thinking the worst. I did have a colonoscopy and endoscopy about two years ago. All clear there too. Also had a stomach ultrasound a few months ago and I pelvic ultrasound a few weeks ago. All clear also. When you live alone and all you have on your hands is time to think and think it brings on the worst anxiety and depression. I try to exercise good thoughts and positive thinking but the negative out weighs the positive. Thanks for reading. It made me feel a little better putting it down on paper. Peace ...
