    Hi all. My son has been complaining of lower right side abdominal pain and stinging when passing urine. Called caredoc Friday early and they said to go straight to a&e In case it was appendicitis. 3 hours in a&e later, we are told its not appendix, urine and bloods clear so it's either a virus or ibs. He's not unwell so not a virus. Told to go home and take calpol and nurofen. He's still in agony and pain moved up around left kidney now. Am I entitled to go back in to a&e and demand a scan of some sort or go through gp? What would ye do?
