Emailed primary now over abdom pain

Telling him symptoms and results of my visit advising what to do and asking for gastro referral. The Dr I saw Friday communicated to me that xrays would sort of be uneeded. I should have insisted.

Been having abdominal upper and lower and radiating into groin pain. I'm at a loss. Today is day 8. Urine clear no blood or uti. Concerned. Decided to pursue it with my primary.

That really does happen a lot to people. The bowels take up a lot of real estate in our bellies.

with that description they don't mess around.
There is a lot of stuff down there and it's
bad when it hurts.
My family history indicated the colon.

It involves an Ostomy bag.

Have to be careful what I eat and chew before swallowing.

They should be doing an MRI to rule out gastro. A contrast hip MRI to diagnose a tear is also needed.
