If they can't determine what something is on ultrasound or a good view is blocked by bowel gases etc. then it's absolutely routine to follow it up with a better/more detailed scan. Twice now my hubby has had to go for an MRI after ultrasound because they just couldn't determine what things were in enough detail.

It's good they have managed to get you a CT appointment this quickly so hopefully you'll get a better and more detailed report after that scan.

Great news about a quick CT scan. It is the gold standard and you are lucky not to have to wait. Here’s hoping nothing untoward is found. Best wishes Yorkybar

Completely normal. Has happened to me many many times. Keep on farting so they can get a good ultrasound 😀
