I need a CT scan of my tummy today :(

I am scared! I have to have a CT scan of my tummy today due to extreme pain on my upper left side and some pain on right side. I am swelling in the upper tummy area.

Anyone who has had this please tell me about it. I have to drink some solution today before the test and then have some injection! Any side effects to either? Ahhhh I hate injections, I hate them so much I am over due for a tetanus shot and I skipped the FLU shot.

Also my doctor didnt say much about what she thought was wrong....so why did you have yours done ???

I had one done for upper stomach pain and had to drink some stuff. I think it fills the tummy with air so they can see what they need to see. It does make you feel bloated and gassy. You have to hold the gas in as well until the test is over. You might have to drink something different though depending on what they are looking for. Hope the figure out what is wrong and it is something simple. Good luck!

I had a CT scan when I was having lower abdominal pain. It wasn't bad at all. I remember the solution didn't taste great and the injection felt odd, but nothing like some other test I have had done. The important thing is that they find out what it is going on with you so that you can get some relief. Good luck

I had upper quadrant pain (mostly in the right side). It ended up being a gall bladder issue. They removed it. They did an ultrasound to determine that.

DH had one about 2 years ago. He got huge yellow blisters on his eyes and had to go to the eye doctor the same day. It turns out that the stuff they injected him with caused it. They didn't tell him that he was supposed to drink lots of water afterward to flush it out. Make sure you drink LOTS of water afterward!

I had a CT scan of my stomach when I was like 10. I still remember how nasty the stuff tasted that I had to drink. It tasted like rotten orange juice. I hope it tastes a lot better these days. They also injected me with idodine. It left a coppery taste in my mouth. They found nothing wrong then. But less then a week after I had my daughter (7 months ago) I started having sever abdominal pain in my upper right abdomen. It turned out to be my gallbladder. I had surgery to have it removed only 10 days after I had just had a C-section! I hope everything turns out ok! I'll be praying for you.

Interesting about your hubby judy kolecheck.... my doctors nurse told me to only drink 6 oz of water 3 times mixed with the solution, and nothing else. Imma call them now :/



Edit update: I ct scan people said not to listen to my doctor I should drink as much Clear Liquids as I want.

They did a pelvic and abdominal scan on me for lower stomach pain. They found nothing, I still have stomach pains all the time though. I remember first and foremost that nasty contrast I had to drink. I had not been able to eat or drink all day due to the pain so I am told to drink this nasty concoction around 10:00 pm. When my stomach is empty everything makes it nauseous. It was horrible--they gave me 15 minutes to drink the entire 12 oz of nasty orange liquid and believe me it took the entire time.

Hope all is well, let us know what happens.
