Constipation: the mass in the LLQ and the fecal matter in the rectal vault point toward constipation. 2. Obstruction: The tenderness that the patient felt, along with the constipation and the episode of diarrhea, could point toward an intestinal obstruction. 3. Diverticulitis: The tenderness and constipation could be signs of diverticulitis, but as the patient is not running a fever or vomiting, I believe that this is less likely. LLQ abdominal mass. Differential diagnoses include constipation, diverticulitis, and intestinal obstruction. Student Documentation Model Documentation Plan Diagnostics: I would like to order a CT scan or an x-ray to identify the mass in the patient's LLQ. I would also like to order a CBC as this can help diagnose diverticulitis if the white blood cell count is elevated. Medication: Depending on the test results, I might prescribe an over the counter nonstimulant laxative like Miralax to help the patient with constipation. Education: I educated the patient on the importance of a fiber rich diet. This included information on foods high in fiber like fruits and vegetables, as well as a suggestion for the use of supplements like Metamucil to keep her regular. I also educated the patient on the importance of remaining hydrated and the effects that dehydration can have on the gastrointstinal system. I asked her to keep track of all the water she drank in a day so that she could remind herself to stay hydrated. Referral: Depending on the test results, like a possible diagnosis of diverticulitis, she might need a referral to a gastrointeroligist for further testing. Follow up: I educated the patient on worsening symptoms that should prompt her to seek mergency care including a fever, vomiting, or if the pain worsens significantly. If nothing changes, I would like to see her back in a week. If it is simply constipation and she is able to have normal bowel movements again and the pain has subsided, she should be okay until her next check-up. Diagnostics • Abdominal x-rays or CT scan to assess for obstruction • CBC to assess for elevated WBCs associated with diverticulitis and electrolyte profile to evaluate electrolyte and fluid status Medication • None at this time Education • Educate to increase/maintain fluid intake • Diet is important in maintaining colon health. Pending diagnostic test results, educate Ms. Park to eat a diet rich in fiber such as whole wheat, pears, and many other fruits, vegetables and oats Referral/Consultation • Pending diagnostic test results, may need GI or surgical referral Follow-up Planning • Instruct the patient that is she develops a fever, nausea, vomiting, and worsening abdominal pain, she should seek immediate medical attention • Revisit clinic in 5-7 days for follow up and evaluation © Shadow Health® 2018 [Show More]
