Lower Right Abdomen Pain

Hey everyone!

This is my first post on here and I am excited to be a member!

To give everyone a little background: I was diagnosed with appendicitis on October 30, 2013 and had surgery that same day. I was in the hospital for about a day and then it took about a month to be able to return to work and normal activities.

I did develop a hematoma near the surgery site which was painful and finally went away near the end of December. Since then I have been pain free.

However, this past Thursday I was at work and was consumed with a horrible stomach pain. It was radiating pain all over my abdomen but more close to my right side. It felt like I had to rush to the bathroom except I did not really "go" that much. I left work and went home. The pain was only present when I walked and I felt nothing while laying down or sitting.

The next day I was able to walk fine without pain but it still hurt if I pushed on the area where my appendix was located. Went to the doctor and they thought I just had a stomach infection which was irritating the surgery site. My stomach has been gurgling but I don't feel weak, nauseous, I don't have diarrhea, and my appetite is normal. In fact, it seems as though I have been going to the bathroom less since this has started last week.

I have tried taking gas-x and Ducolax stool softener in case I was "backed up" but nothing has seemed to work.

I am able to complete normal activities without disruption except for the occasional pains that I can feel. I am worried that this may be something greater that I am not aware of.

Has anyone experienced anything similar? Do you think I should be concerned enough to go to the emergency room?

Thanks everyone in advance!
