    Not sure if this is related to my diabetes or not to be honest.

    It all started several weeks ago when I started complaining of stomach, side and lower back pain and the doctor found blood in my urine.

    I was treated for a UTI & then kidney stones. Several weeks passed and I was sent for a CT scan. Three days later the GP rang.

    They found inflammation around/of the kidney and the glands in my stomach are enlarged.

    Within two days, I’ve attended the surgery for urgent bloods, an examination of my other areas to check glands, e.g neck, groin and armpits, she said she couldn’t feel anything.

    I’ve got a second CT scan booked in, this time to look at my chest, stomach and pelvis and an appointment with a consultant at the hospital.

    All of this is taking place within a week and a half of the GP calling with the original CT results.

    No one is letting on about anything and I’ve no idea what the speciality I’m been sent to does, so I’m scared and anxious with the quickness and lack of information.
