Past few days I had bad stomach swelling, and a little pain and swelling on my sides above my hips. I went to the doctor about it and he initially thought it was muscle inflammation.That night, I woke up with difficulty breathing and went to the ER. They did some blood tests and X-Rays. The blood tests all came back great, but the next morning I got a call from one of the nurses who told me they found an abnormality in my abdomen. My primary physician noticed the abnormality is circular in nature. He and my mom, who is a nurse, both think its an Intussusception Intestine due to its shape. Naturally, I'm freaking out really bad thinking its some form of cancer. I just got back from the hospital getting a CAT scan. The whole process of that was terrifying. Basically, my symptoms include swelling stomach, little bit on my sides and minor lower back ache. I urinate fine, but I think I could be somewhat constipated. The whole ordeal has me not eating much so it could just be not eating enough to pass much waste. I'm just curious if anyone has similar experiences such as this, maybe even someone can help reassure me.
Some things about me:
23 year old male
My mom's a nurse and doesn't seem to be too worried, but naturally I'm very worried and afraid.
Thanks for reading, God Bless, and I wish everyone here the best of luck.
