Hi, I'm so glad I found this place, almost impossible to find people with stories about MP, I wanted to share mine!
Last week I had an episode of pain and went into ER. They did a CT scan and confirmed it was appendicitis, and on the same day I got it removed.
I went back to the hospital yesterday to get my exam results and It says:
"Densification of mesenteric fat with small lymph nodes, non-specific, but suggesting mesenteric panniculitis".
I quickly went searching for it and ended up finding you guys. My doubt is,on the same CT report it says also "Densification of fat near the appendix" related to my appendicitis condition, I was wondering it those things could be related or if it could cause any kind of misdiagnose.
The exam says I dont have any enlarged lymph nodes in my abdomen or pelvic area, I'm a 35 year old man and never had any symptoms of MP. I'm trying to find a doctor who specializes on it, but I live in Brazil and so far I couldn't.
