So I'm having a CT scan on the 5th for my abdomen and pelvis. I've had an upper stomach problem for 7 months now and hoping this will she's some light. (Not really sure why they are even scanning my pelvis since its just been upper stomach pain and vomiting /nausea)
Only problem is I've just got my period. I'm 18 pills in to my second cerazette pack and have barely stopped bleeding since I started. I've had 5 days blood free but just started again, last time it lasted 20 odd days so I'm probably going to be still bleeding next week.
Can I wear a tampon while being scanned? I don't know what I'm allowed to wear. It says hospital gown supplied on my letter (said that on my letter for a gastroscopy but I just wore my own clothes) but can I wear underwear underneath it to wear a pantyliner? The other option is I bleed all over there machine. I can't reschedule as the follow up is booked in and there's nothing else for months and I really can't go on being unwell for any longer (ill since May), im completely miserable and fed up with being alive at his point.
Thanks for any help!
