About 06:50 this morning, I had a sudden sharp stabbing pain in the lower-right abdomen. Given what that could’ve meant, I went to the hospital as soon as I could confirm it wasn’t going away. After bloodwork, urinalysis, and a CAT scan, however, the medical conclusion was, “We don’t know.” Aside from an atrophic left kidney (which I knew about) and a hypertrophic right kidney (which I didn’t) and a calcified granuloma in my lungs, everything checked out okay. No appendicitis, no kidney stones, no gallstones… So, guess I’ll be chugging naproxen for a few days.
Fortunately, I’m on Medicare/Medicaid, so I don’t expect to have to pay much, if anything, for all of this. I’ll be following up with my PCP soon.
