I'm not looking forward to this afternoon at all. I started having pains in my side the day after i picked my new car up, i at first thought i had pulled something in the gym and it was a case of D.O.M.S but 4 days later the pain had shifted and i was in excruciating pain nearly immediately after i ate anything. Wednesday just gone i went to the docs, got prescribed some pain killers that didn't work then went to hospital that night. thursday morning i was back in with my GP who got me in for some blood tests on friday. yesterday i picked up my results and went for a consultation at a private hospital. While i was in for my consultation the doctor said in a worrying tone "I need you to come ASAP as i would like you to have a ultra-sound scan, colonoscopy, gastroscopy and more blood tests, can you come in tomorrow?" to which i replied "yes" he then told me to go and eat ASAP and then start taking the pre-treatment laxatives as i would be in tomorrow (today) afternoon. I dont know any more than that as it was all such a hurry yesterday and at the time i was all 'ok lets eat' but now i'm really nervous! My GP had mentioned suspected gallstones but the doctor yesterday seemed really concerned with the pain i was getting from anything i ate and the fact it was shifting from my stomach to my side just under my right rib cage. Only 3 hours to go but due to the laxatives I'm already unable to wipe I'm having to dab so this could be a very loooooong 3 hours! :/ one question though due to me needing a camera up my sheriffs badge do i need to shave it before i go?
