Customer Question

Customer: Hello. I spent the evening in the ER on Saturday night. I was awakened out of a dead sleep by a stabbing pain on my right side. My husband took me to the hospital. They did an ultrasound, and a bunch of lab tests. It looks like my white blood cell count is slightly elevated (10.12 x 10(9)), and my AST is 47 U/L. They sent me home with Bentyl for pain and Zofran for nausea (I had major nausea and vomiting). The pain is still there...Bentyl is numbing it just a small bit. I'm still VERY nauseous. I'm running a low grade fever (about 99). Is this something I should be concerned about?
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: That's about it.
JA: OK got it. Last thing — JustAnswer charges a fee (generally around $34) to post your type of question to Medical Experts (you only pay if satisfied). There are a couple customers ahead of you. Are you willing to wait a bit?
Customer: yes
JA: OK. Now I'm going to take you to a page to place a secure deposit with JustAnswer. Don't worry, this chat is saved. After that, we will finish helping you.
