    Right lower quarant pain...please tell me what to do!

    I have had right lower quadrant pain for a week now. Went to the ER and they did an ultrasound and also a ct. Results...fluid in area. Most have had an ruptured cyst. Well, I'm on pain meds and anti inflammatories with a little relief. What's next? I shouldn't be hurting like this still. What else could be causing this pain?

    depends on what your pain is like ... ruptured ovarian cyst could cause this especially if it was hemorrhagic and is irritating the peritoneum(abdominal wall) in the area with the "free fluid"

    always could be an appy, but depends on what your pain is like and overall how you look, there are these chronic appy's that present atypically, if you having a lot of nausea/vomiting, any fevers or chills, may want to get it looked at again

    not sure how old you are, and right sided location is less typical, but occassionally mild diverticulitis can give you this type of pain, but CT is very sensitive and specific for this, so would be less likely

    other atypical things, like inflammatory bowel disease/epiploic appendagitis/mesenteric adenitis/focal enteritis/ischemic or collagenous colitis, infection, pelvic inflammatory disease, porphyria and more can give you abdominal pain, but there likelihood all depends on what your overall symptoms , exam and risk factors(like age or other comorbidities) are like ...

    if the pain still persists, make sure you f/u(follow up) with your PCP, as during trips to the ER, ER docs just need to r/o the badness like appy/tubo-ovarian abscess/diverticulitis and then they may send you home with more anti-inflammatories and script for a couple of narc pills and to again follow up with your PCP

    best of luck

    Maybe gallbladder attack? Have you noticed pain when you eat high fat foods? (even milk)
