"Pain in my right side"

About: Perth Royal Infirmary / General Surgery

(as the patient),

I have had an ultrasound scan two colonoscopies a Ct scan another ultrasound and I am still in pain. I have diverticulosis. Although the testa were well done I feel that the reporting of results could be improved. My pain killers have ceased to work. The Nhs has spent a lot of money on me and I am left with the advice from my GPs that they may never know what is wrong with me.
