i am a 17 year old male. for the past month i have had abdominal pain in the lower left quadrant, as a start line i guess you can say from the belly button down. i have gone for 3 cat scans, one with in five days of having the initual pain, which showed possible diverticolius, and swelling in the sigmoid colon. the second one which was taken 10 days later agreed with the first, and that there was a new liquid around the intesines. i was then hopsitalized for five days where they did many blood test and a colonoscopy. the blood test said i have mono (which agree with the tiredness, swollen throat, and initial fever).. the colonoscopy showed swelling in the sigmoid colon, but the doctor did not see the diverticolitus that was on the catscans.... and so they blamed everything on mono. two weeks later i went to a infectious desease doctor who said the pain can not be from mono, i also went to another gi who said the pain can not be from mono as well. the problem still presisted for a week and the doctor brought me into another hospital. after the third catscan showing the swelling went down, and all blood test and infectious test came back negative they once again blamed this all on mono. i still have the pain... i understand that there is pain from mono in the upper lower quadrant because of the swollen spleen, but that is not where my pain is, it is lower, it kills when you push on it and the pain increases with food.Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
