Sounds like diverticulosis.

?? I'd think she'd know if she had a chronic condition like diverticulitis. Unless diverticulosis is a newly-discovered disease.wink.gif

Anyway, "intestinal pain" could mean pretty much anything because it's hard to determine exactly what's hurting among all the parts in the abdomen. Could be anything from food poisoning to an ovarian cyst to some kind of gomboo.

Yeah, I think she's a bit young for diverticular disease, but who knows. (Maybe a gluten thing?)  Doesn't sound good, hopefully it's easily fixed.

Appendix infection?

We ought to start a pool.

Not!

Doubt it's diverticulitis.  That's rare in 28 year olds.  The most common causes of abdominal pain in young women are irritable bowel and gastroenteritis, neither of which should lead to hospitalization.  

 

That leaves cholecystitis/gallbladder disease, appendicitis, Crohn's/ulcerative colitis, pancreatitis, peptic ulcer, gynecological issues, etc...  

 

None of those are likely to impact her career much if she gets prompt care.  And you can be she's getting top notch medical attention.

 

Let's hope for the best.

Isn't that what Lisa Loopner had?

Vonn released from the hospital

From this morning's NY Times  http://www.nytimes.com/aponline/2012/11/14/sports/ap-ski-vonn-hospitalized.html?ref=sports

 

My neighbor's 8 year old daughter opined, "Maybe she's got cooties in her guts."
