Which part of the right abdomen lower or upper?
his symptoms are little concerning.
Acute appendicitis is the likely diagnosis.
This can cause severe pain leading to fainting episodes.
Hence, this requires urgent clinical evaluation.
CT scan of the abdomen is diagnostic.
Surgery is required if appendicitis confirmed.
definitely, your husband should go to the A & E now.
He has already seen a DR who suggested it could be trapped wind, took bloods and told to come back for results
but still does not rule ou appendicitis.
The symptoms are not typical of common abdominal pain.
if results are normal do you think reasonable to request ct scan if it isn't offered
Yes of course
Since he is still in pain very much, Ct scan is required.
Gas will not cause this type of severe pain.
