Slightly worried

Hello all. New here so please forgive any mistakes. 

Had an abdominal ultrasound this morning and found it extremely painful. Have never experienced pain with a scan before and am little worried why it hurt so much. It normally is uncomfortable during a scan but this was real pain I felt. Person doing the scan wasnt ond of the nicest people I've met which is a shame as most NHS staff have been amazing in my experience. 

Thank you in advance for any help x

It does depend on who does it sometimes. I had one about 18 months ago and it was really uncomfortable. He pressed extremely hard, aggravating the gallstones which they thought I had, I did ! I completely understand your concern, did they tell you when and how you would get the results? It is so hard waiting to hear, I truly hope you hear soon and all is good x

I wouldn't worry . It seems like the lady doing the scan was not gentle with you. 

Hope your results are good at least. Xx
